November 30, 2003

Jennifer Daily, a Baltimore County resident who was pursuing a career in corrections, died Monday at Greater Baltimore Medical Center after being admitted for chest pains and shortness of breath. The cause of her death remains unknown. She was 22.

Miss Daily, known as Jen to her family and friends, was born in Baltimore County and attended Timonium Elementary School. After briefly attending Dulaney and Towson high schools, she completed her General Educational Development degree in 2000. She had hoped to become a Maryland corrections officer and recently completed the required exam and interview.

Family members described Miss Daily as an active young woman with a passion for athletics, movies, animals and books. As a teen-ager, she participated in several sports, including soccer, basketball and softball. She was a voracious reader and a fan of the author Anne Rice.

An animal-lover, Miss Daily once worked at a veterinarian's office. According to family members, she left the job because she could not bear seeing the animals in pain. She was a devoted caretaker to her cat, Maha.

Miss Daily also loved to spend time with her friends. On Tuesday nights, she often joined them to sing karaoke at Tully's, a bar on Belair Road.

Services were held yesterday.

Survivors include her mother, Jean Daily of Timonium; her sister, Dierdre Daily of Timonium; and her grandmothers, Anna E. Daily of Timonium and Lue E. Sewell of White Hall.

Memorial contributions may be made in Miss Daily's name to the Humane Society of the United States, Kindred Spirits Memorial Program, 2100 L St. N.W., Washington, D.C. 20037.
