Jenna Hinman was only 26 when she passed away, after a two month battle with cancer. Her family was by her bedside when she died at Syracuse hospital Monday. Jenna made the ultimate sacrifice, giving her own life to save those of her twins, Azlynn and Kinleigh.

Her obituary was posted in Syracuse newspaper:

'Jenna was the most amazingly, beautiful daughter a mother could wish for, but was also a mom, wife, sister, aunt, granddaughter, niece, and friend. Jenna's heart was filled with love to give in which she did endlessly. She loved her family, friends, career, the military, and most of all her newly born twin baby girls. Jenna grew up a tomboy and an athlete, which naturally made her daddy's little girl. Her favorite sports teams were the New York Yankees and the New York Giants, but she loved playing the game of basketball more than anything. Jenna and her father would always sit and watch sports together like she was his little partner. Jenna was a special kind of person who had the unique ability to always find the good in people. She will be greatly missed by so many, but most of all her family and close friends.'

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Jenna's memory to a special trust fund set up for the twins, Azlynn and Kinleigh Hinman.
