Redskins Family Loses a Member October 26, 2009
It is with extreme sadness that I must report that Jennifer Fritsch-Williams, who cheered for the Redskins between 2002 and 2006, passed away over the weekend due to medical complications from her pregnancy. Jennifer was a fan favorite and I always saw a smile on her face every time I saw her. She was a beautiful young lady and an even classier woman. Jennifer will be missed desperately. She is survived by her husband, Joe, their 2-year-old son, her parents and a host of relatives and friends. Expressions of sympathy can be sent to:
4125 Gateway Blvd White Plains, MD 20695-3025
Karl and Sue Fritsch

Upper Marlboro, MD 20772
Heaven has gained a real angel. Rest in peace, Jennifer. And thank you.
what a shame! Prayers up for her and her family.
Life is precious. Live, love, laugh and hold on tight.
My sincere condolences to her family and loved ones
Was she the one that developed those strange symptoms after getting a flu shot? Either way, I am sorry to hear that especially at such a young age.
No offense to Jennifer, but when did free republic become an obit clearing house?
If anyone knows how to post a picture of her up here I would appreciate it. There is a link at the top. She was such a sweet person and will be missed.
This is so terrible to hear. Such a young beautiful girl, it’s very sad. May God bless her soul and may she rest in peace.
“Was she the one that developed those strange symptoms after getting a flu shot?”
YES IT IS...
Since when is being killed by the Flu Shot a “Complication of Pregnancy”?
And to the one questioning why this is on FR, NOW do you see why?
I’m very sorry to hear about her passing. I looked at her photo and she’s so young and beautiful! And she died of complications while bringing new life into the world!
She was a very lovely lady - inside and out!
A new resident of Heaven!
The flu shot killed her????
Prayers and sympathies.
I think that was a different girl.
This is NOT the girl diabled by the Flu Shot!!!
Desiree Jennings is the former cheerleader who had a flu shot.
Jennings claims she has a nerve disorder after her flu shot. Jennings claims her disorder came after a bad reaction to her flu shot. Jennings experience highlights the fact that H1N1 vaccine safety is a concern.
Jennings was an aspiring cheerleader. She was healthy and trained for a half-marathon. Jennings was an ambassador fro the Washington Redskins and the future looked bright for the 25 year old woman.
Jennings, while still a cheerleader, had her flu shot and her whole world turned upside down. Seven weeks ago, Jennings received her flu shot. Ten days later, Jennings said she had flu
Don’t mean to bum y’all out, but this is a sad Hottie Ping.

RIP pretty lady.
Thanks for the clarification. I know people are bugged out by the flu vaccine, and while there may be a good foundation for it, we shouldn’t contribute to it by attibuting side effects to someone who was not victimized by it.
(Not you...you got the right info out!)
Most unusual to die secondary to pregnancy or giving birth these days, although 200 years ago it was common. Either she got bad care or she had something VERY rare...sad either way....
Based on the way the notice was written, I do not think it was childbirth. They said “medical complications from pregnancy.”
when did free republic become an obit clearing house?
no offense but long before you logged on for the first time at FR. ;-)
historical records&archives have been lost from the old database era but the late 1990s is my best guess.
Obits have run the gamut from politicians, wives of politicians, the ‘elite’, mistresses, wrasslers to artists, writers, and comedians (of which there are very few truly funny ones left) .. and occasionally to our own and family, those being the saddest to read of all.
hope that helps.
No she was only 31 or 32 weeks pregnant. It wasnt from childbirth.
How terribly sad.
Prayers up for family and friends.
Eclampsia would be my guess with seizures or kidney damage...but if that WERE the case, it would be unusual for someone like her not to have proper care. Still doesn’t make sense...
An academic neurologist observing the cheerleader speak on camera opined that her “nerve disorder” was psychosomatic not due to a flu shot.

An obituary can often be a launching point for a discussion of conservative principles. For example, about two weeks ago, I posted the obituary of Ignacio Ponseti. He's not a household name, but he was the doctor who revolutionized the treatment for club feet, one of the most common birth defects.
The reason I posted it was that Ponseti's ideas for treatment of club feet had been rejected for decades. They only gained acceptance because parents started talking with each other on the Internet and learning that Ponseti's method worked far better than the standard method. Doctor's were losing patients as parents took their babies to Iowa for treatment. In short, the free market worked.
Okay, I'm not sure any conservative principle can be found on this thread, but in many cases, obituaries tell a story that is worth telling.
What about refrigerators, car seats, and pink flamingos?
Sheesh, ya can't even be a redneck in this state anymore!
Is that reply something to do with this thread?
I assume that the baby also died?
Either way, prayers definitely go out to her family.
Oh.... I see now it’s from her home page.

There’s some discussion re a possible flu shot complication. I did a google-news on “Jennifer Fritsch-Williams” and got nothing. Still they’re pushing the shots, being pregnant she was at the top of the list of candidates and despite being young and healthy she died of pregnancy related complications - anyone have any other news links? :-(
For your information she is not the one that got the Flu shot complications. You really should know what you’re talking about before you run your mouth.
