Jennifer Marie Hatajik

Jennifer Marie Hatajik, 44, Duncansville, went home with her Lord and Savior on Thursday at UPMC Altoona after a courageous battle with cancer.

She was born in Warner Robins, Ga., daughter of Thomas Barr and the late Peggy (Fountain) Barr. On Jan. 16, 1999, she married Timothy A. Hatajik.

Surviving are her spouse,Timothy; her three children; Jack, Lucas and Alison; a brother, Steven (Kasey); a brother-in-law, Todd (Lori); a sister-in-law, Kristin; four nephews: Dylan, Evan, Ethan and Tyler; and four nieces Lindsay, Maggie, Betsy and Evie.

She was preceded in death by her beloved mother, Peggy; and her nephew, Thaddeus Milton Barr. After he passed, Jennifer was there to comfort her nieces through his loss. It was at this time she built a special relationship with them and truly became a "cool aunt."

Jack, Lucas and Alison were her passion in life. She enjoyed watching them grow and play sports. Jennifer had a love of music and she enjoyed playing the piano and listening to all types of genres, from Prince to Alison Krauss. She was a devoted Catholic with a strong faith. She was a religion teacher at St. Michael Parish, where she was a shining role model for many young people, strengthening their faith in Christianity.

Jennifer graduated from Slippery Rock University where she was an All American Goalie for the 1995 National Championship Women's Water Polo Team. She continued on with her education and received a master's degree from Saint Francis University in human resources. Her second passion was her work. She worked at UPMC Altoona in the HR department, where she loved assisting employees with their benefits and the retirement process, in which she was an expert. She was a dedicated employee who continued to work through breast cancer and even after her brain cancer diagnosis, up until the end of her fight.

Jennifer was a strong woman who lived life fully through work, faith and most of all family. She will be remembered for her smile, laugh and HUGS!!!

Friends will be received from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 8, 2019, at The Good Funeral Home Inc., Alto-Reste Park. A memorial service will be held at 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 9, 2019, at St. Michael's Catholic Church, Hollidaysburg, Father Alan Thomas, officiating.
