Remembering Jill Marie Maurer-Campbell

2006-09-12T09:05:38.846-07:00

Jill Maurer Campbell was afraid of heights, but that didn't stop her from fulfilling a lifelong dream of skydiving when she was in Australia or from trying out as many roller coasters as she could. It also didn't stop her from working high up on the seventy-eighth floor of the World Trade Center. She wasn't crazy about the idea, but her loyalty and commitment to her boss, Rob Patterson, was stronger than her anxiety. Jill was independent and career-minded, but she never gave up her baby blanket-or"tickle", as she liked to call it. Jill was petite, only weighing about 115 pounds, but she could put away the biggeststeak Neiderstein's had on the menu.Although she was spontaneous-taking spur-of-the-moment trips or making last­minute plans-she was extremely organized and saved everything in neatly organized scrapbooks, including a letter she wrote to the tooth fairy when she lost her first tooth. Jill had wanderlust, diligently saving her money so she could see the world, but she was rooted in family and never strayed far from her hometown of Middle Village, Queens. When she married Steve, the couple settled just blocks away from her childhood home. Jill wasn't predictable, but she was grounded and loving, and she always followed her heart. And the one thing that inhabited her heart, from the time she was a little girl, was a goal she always knew she was moving toward: the dream ofJake...the little boy who lived in her heart, years before he was even a reality. Jill’s Smile Jill was a beautiful woman who made a lasting impression on everyone she met.Jeanne says her best physical feature was her smile, and it seems that the one thing so many people remember about her so vividly was exactly that warm, happy smile. "The way she smiled could really make you feel better, even on your worst days."Steve Campbell "She was a beautiful person who could brighten up a room (or a bus, or an entire school) with her smile." Michael Williamson "We miss your beautiful face, the sound of your voice...your laughter, your great smile (that could light up a room)." Linda Maurer "I will always remember your smile, your wonderful laugh, and the joy that you brought my family." John Campbell "I miss walking in every morning and seeing your smile-or that look like you're ready to kill someone!" Lorena Munoz "I will never ever forget the first time I saw Jill. She was coming in for a second interview with Helen, and she walked in and gave me a beautiful, sincere smile." Saida GuadalupeBorn June 2, 1970 to Jeanne and Joseph Maurer; Jill Marie Maurer as a toddler and young girl was exuberant and a dancer. She was the type of person that we all have met (if we’re lucky) at one time or another in our lives that you just can’t help but gravitate toward. When family got together it was Jill the cousins tended to surround, knowing something fun was just around the corner. During childhood, Jill and her sister Linda took tap, ballet and jazz dance lessons, which led to many performances by the cousins at family gatherings at the Maurer household. Once rehearsed, the adults would be led down to the basement or the Maurer Multiplex and were treated to memorable performances, which they had to pay for of course (smart cookies those kids). At Christmas time the Maurer family would travel upstate; no not Westchester (the state does encompass more than just the five boroughs you city folk), but to the Adirondacks to visit Santa at the North Pole, NY. Each year they would celebrate making decorations, trimming the tree with the elves and other children. Later on in the evening Santa would stop by to see the tree and have dinner with all the children and families there. The following morning allowed everyone to witness Santa and the elves hard at work preparing for the holiday. In summer, the family would head to Daniels, which is a family-oriented resort in Pennsylvania. Meeting annually with many of the same families each year I’m sure added addition[...]
