Jennifer Kay (Schmid) Shultz

August 1, 1972 ~ August 9, 2021 (age 49)


Jennifer Kay Schmid Shultz, 49, entered into her Savior’s arms on Monday August 9, 2021 at her residence. She was born August 1, 1972 in Wooster, the daughter of Thomas and Jean Maxwell Schmid.

She was a 1990 graduate of Hillsdale High School, a 1994 graduate of Ashland University, and a member of the Park Street Brethren Church in Ashland. Jenn was a homemaker and also worked as a nursing home social worker early in her career. She found great purpose in caring for and serving others. 

She loved to spend time outdoors—hiking and biking with family and friends, tending to her beautiful flowers, and taking care of her animals (goats, cats and dog). She had a warm smile and a kind, gentle, nurturing, and inviting spirit. One of her greatest joys in life was investing in her children. Her faithful walk with the Lord was the highest priority, and all who knew Jenn felt the love of Jesus through her. 

She will be deeply missed by her husband, Nate Shultz, to whom she was married August 6, 1994, her children, Natalie (Jonah) Powell of Columbus, and Jack (Genevieve) Shultz of Ashland, a grandson, Kit Shultz, her mother, Jean Schmid of Jeromesville, her sister, Brenda (fiancé Eddie Vallette) Schmid of Columbus and her father-in-law and mother-in-law, John and Jeanie Shultz of Ashland.

Services will be 11:00 AM Saturday August 14, 2021 at the Ashland University Chapel with Pastor Nate Bebout officiating. Burial will be in Ashland Cemetery.

There will be a meal following the service at Park Street Brethren Church. 

Friends may call Friday August 13, 2021 at the Ashland University Chapel from 4-7 pm.
