More than anything Jana was a friend and an inspiration to everyone she touched. Jana had a smile and laugh that were absolutely contagious. She gracefully juggled being a healthcare executive and a mom-of-the-year for her children. Jana had an attitude that you can conquer anything you set your heart and mind to. You saw it in her successful career, you saw it in her beautiful children and you saw it in her courageous battle. To the final moment Jana never gave up. So often during the tough times of her battle Jana was the one giving the encouragement to those who loved her. Jana taught so many to live each day to the fullest, to be grateful for every moment, day and memory that you are blessed with, to always push on, and to make sure that those you care about always know your love.
This award is about the beautiful, loving, endearing spirit of Jana. It is a way for her precious spirit to be kept alive and the incredible qualities she possessed to be aspired to and recognized. The qualities that we will look for in those that receive this award will be a combination of a mentor, role model, advisor, family person, a person not afraid to struggle, whose combination of endearing qualities draw others in.
