Jennifer Elizabeth Holbrook

April 7, 1984 — November 25, 2022



Jennifer Elizabeth (Mott) Holbrook passed away peacefully in her sleep at her home in Kaysville, Utah on Friday, November 25, 2022 at the age of 38.

Jenn was born on April 7, 1984 in Salt Lake City, Utah to parents Roger Mott and Susan Marietta, a welcome surprise following right along after her twin brother, Jeff. She was raised in Holladay, Utah and graduated from Skyline High School in 2002. She completed a portion of her schooling at the University of Utah and then graduated with her degree in nursing from Salt Lake Community College in 2008. Jenn worked as a Certified Nursing Assistant at Huntsman Cancer Hospital while attending nursing school, then continued to work as a Registered Nurse (RN) at Huntsman for a total of 16 years. Being a nurse was a part of her identity. She was a devoted and diligent nurse who saved countless lives and served thousands of cancer patients over the span of her career; she also worked tirelessly as an essential worker during the recent COVID-19 pandemic. Jenn’s expertise made her a valuable asset to her coworkers and patients, and she truly loved being a nurse; she readily offered her medical knowledge to help her family and friends.

Jenn and her husband, Derek Holbrook, were introduced to each other by JoLene (Derek’s mother) and Julie (Jenn’s step-mother) in 2012. They quickly fell in love and were sealed for time and eternity in the Salt Lake Temple in Salt Lake City, Utah on October 11, 2012. They were blessed with a daughter, Abigail, in 2014 and a son, Jack, in 2018. Jenn adored her husband and children more than anything, and her entire family was the source of her greatest joy. She would sacrifice or drop anything for her family members in a heartbeat. She consistently made her nieces and nephews feel so special and loved. She especially loved vacationing with her family—trips to St. George and visits to Brighton/Solitude resorts in Big Cottonwood Canyon every Fourth of July being her favorites.

Jenn was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints throughout her life and touched the lives of many friends and people that she interacted with at church, at work, and in the community. She was known by many to be fiercely loyal, caring, generous, and thoughtful of others. She had a smile that could light up the room. Her love of Peanuts characters was prominent in various areas of her life, especially when it came to decorating her home for each holiday, which she thoroughly enjoyed. Having the smell of a real, fresh, pine Christmas tree in her home every Christmas season was a necessity. Jenn meticulously cleaned and organized regularly; her home was known by all of her family members to always smell fragrant and clean. Other hobbies and interests throughout her life included taking care of many pets and animals, baking cupcakes and cookies, swimming, and traveling. She also loved music and attending concerts and comedy shows with family and friends; her favorites included U2, Garth Brooks, Linkin Park, Anberlin, The Offspring, Lady Gaga, and Brian Regan. Jenn’s spunk, laughter, smile, zest for life, and love will be immensely missed by her family and loved ones.

Jenn is survived by her husband Derek Holbrook; children Abigail Holbrook and Jack Holbrook; grandmother Eloise Goodyear; father Roger (Julie) Mott; mother Susan (Jack) Marietta; brother Jeffery (Melissa and their children Eloise, Madeline, Crew, and Conrad) Mott; brother Jordan (McKenzie and their children Porter and Gideon) Mott; brother Jason (Natalie and their child Brandon) Mott; step-brother Chris (Jen) Marietta; parents-in-law Michael and JoLene Holbrook; brother-in-law Lance (Amber and their children Sadie, Sawyer, and Sophie) Holbrook; and sister-in-law Shalayne (and her children Liberty and Bella) Wright. Jenn is preceded in death by her nephew Theodore Royal Mott (son of Jordan and McKenzie Mott); grandparents Clinton Parker Mott, Marion Egbert Mott, and John Harvey Goodyear; and uncle Richard Clinton Mott.
