Jennifer Lynn was born on February 26, 1983, to Gerald and Linda (Unterberger) Fuchs in Little Falls. She grew up on the family farm near Royalton and Bowlus and graduated from Royalton High School in 2001. Jen attended Alexandria Technical College where she pursued a degree in social work. She loved to care for others and worked in the human services field at group homes in Little Falls, St. Cloud and at Lutheran Social Services and Prairie Community Services in Alexandria. Jennifer was united in marriage to the love of her life, Kasey Craig on July 28, 2018, at Gathered Oaks in Alexandria. She was a member of Church of St. Mary and attended River of Life Church in Sauk Centre. She enjoyed arts and crafts, making her own unique picture frames, planting flowers, fishing, riding in the pontoon and dancing. Jen had a huge heart and was known to her family, friends, and co-workers as someone who stood for what she believed in, often extending an ear or open arms to others in need.
