Jennifer Metzler, 35, US Navy Veteran - US Coast Guard Veteran / Hollister, CA
The Patriot Guard Riders have been requested to help Escort Jennifer Metzler to her final resting place. Jennifer L. Metzler passed away in Gustine, CA at the age of 35. Jen was always so charismatic! Known for her big blue eyes, contagious smile, one of a kind snort/laugh, and had a dream she could save the world. She was the most giving and easy going person we have all known.
She was engaged to Robert Ortiz (her true soul mate) before she passed away. She leaves behind not only Robert, but 2 beautiful boys named Jayden who is 6 yrs old, and Joel who is 5. She and Robert also had a daughter together named Kayla who just celebrated her 1st birthday a couple weeks ago. She survived by her 2 sisters, Sheri Huertas, and Heather Dunar, along with her parents Mark and Paula Metzler, her grandparents Merlin & Dorothy Metzler, along with Leo & Etta Pare.
Jen loved games! Everything from Bingo to cards (or as she would say " beating dads butt at cards") she never had a filter on her mouth, and mom alongside everyone else would always yell at her for it. Of course, she'll always be our "angel."
Jenny served in the Navy joining at the young age of 18. Then, after 2 tours in Iraq she switched over to running a boat for the US Coast Guard. She has received many medals and ribbons.
We deeply appreciate Jenny's service and sacrifice to our country and want to be sure that is known. Friends can pay their respects on Monday, Aug. 22, 2016 from 11:00 AM until 1:00 PM. Funeral Services will be at 1:00 PM at the funeral home. Committal and military rites will be on Tuesday, Aug. 23, 2016 at 10:30 AM at San Joaquin Valley National Cemetery in Santa Nella.
