Jodi Lynn Forrest (Jamalkowski), 54, of Rochester, New York passed away suddenly on Friday, February 11, 2022. Jodi is survived by her children, daughter Brittany (Ben) Little, and son Robert Forrest (Cassandra Golda); partner Willis Van Fleet Jr.; brother Rick (Brenda) Jamalkowski, nephews and nieces; and many loving relatives and friends. She was predeceased by her parents, Leo and Annie Jamalkowski; and sister Lisa Cuttitta.
She enjoyed her career as a sign skills coach and loved the many students she worked with over the years at Rochester School for the Deaf, BOCES, and Holy Childhood. She also worked in local restaurants for years, where her love of food and people came together.
Jodi was extremely proud of her children and loved taking day trips with them around New York, rooting for the Buffalo Bills, and trying new restaurants.
Whenever friends and family gathered together, Jodi was always the first to make sure there was more than enough food to feed a crowd. Her generosity, kindness, and sense of humor is remembered by the many lives she has touched.
In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made in Jodi’s name to the Patricia Allen Fund Benefiting John R. Oishei Children’s Hospital in Buffalo.
Calling hours will be held Saturday, March 5 from 10AM-12PM at Rochester Cremation, 1118 Long Pond Rd, Rochester, NY 14626. Memorial service will follow at 12PM.
