Jo was like a second Mom to me.  I love both her and Wayne.

I look forward to reconnecting with Jo in Glory.

After meeting her son Todd through work, he and I became fast friends to the point where people would suspect we were brothers. Jo was living in Austin at the time and would often travel to Phoenix to visit Todd and his boys. It wasn't long before her visits included me as well. The extended Weber family were getting together on two house boats for a week and Jo insisted that I join as well, because I was too now family. I had a fantastic time and from then on I just felt like family. We had lost touch over the years as life sometimes takes us in different directions but I will always remember that trip and Jo including me in the crew. Always smiling and kind hearted to all she came in contact with. Jo has made her final voyage and is now organizing the "fun" from above.

I'm so sorry for your loss.

I loved this woman from the moment I met her. She treated me like I was part of the family. I will miss her phone calls and going to lunch with her. We always had the best talks. This picture is one of my favorites of Jo and Jerry. I was blessed to have her in my life. 

I needed to post this fun pic. Taken on her birthday. Again, what a special lady. 

Sending love to all,Mom is now rejoicing with the Lord Heaven welcomed home a new angel

My sweet Jo Jo. My friend. My angel. What an impact you have made in my life... Silly Les Marling at Green Acres introduced us many years ago and so our journey began.
We became fast friends and you asked me at the tender age of .. I think 28 what I wanted to do with my life. I said I wanted to save money for travel school. Next thing I knew, you hooked me up with Teri and helped move me to Phoenix AZ. where my hospitality career began. I will never forget that ride from Austin to Phoenix.  Sorry I slept through that big wind storm as you drove your van through New Mexico pulling the little U-Haul with all my stuff.   27 years later, I am still in the hospitality industry. I owe so much of my career to you. You had faith in me and I appreciate that.  
You taught me how to make the best ever baked country style ribs and I make them to this day telling Don they are our “Jo Jo” style ribs. They are one of our favorites ever.
What I am most thankful for is the friendship that I have shared with you and Wayne throughout the years. Your infectious smile and laugh I will cherish in my heart forever. I can still hear your voice echoing through my house saying “yahoo” . Rest in peace my sweet angel. I love you and will always miss you.

Jo was a special person.  When we lived in Texas we had some fun times.  Laughing, eating and a little wine we had good times.  My prayers go out to the family.  Lou Ann Weber Harris
