FISHEL LAND O’ LAKES, Fla. - Jennifer Nicole Fishel, 32, of Land O’ Lakes, daughter of David B. Fishel and Rita Van Duser, passed away Sunday, March 16, 2008, at her home, in her sleep. Jennifer was born Feb. 24, 1976, in Winston-Salem, N.C. A graduate of West Forsyth High School, she held a Bachelor’ s degree in marketing from UNC-Wilmington. Her passion was fine food, and after college she began a 10-year career in catering and food marketing. She worked for Winston-Salem area firms until 2003 when she moved to the Tampa area and continued her career, serving as a manager and marketing director for two restaurant chains. Beginning in October 2006, she lived a dream, serving as the chef on a charter yacht sailing from St. Thomas in the Caribbean for eight months. Although she had a unique talent for dropping electronic equipment overboard, the pleasure her clients expressed with her food and service was one of the sincere joys of her life. At the time of her death, she was a student at the Florida Art Institute’ s School of Culinary Arts and was ranked in the top of her class. She was also a food and restaurant columnist for Manatee Media Inc., publishers of a chain of weekly newspapers in the Tampa area. Her love of fine food was only slightly greater than her devotion to University of North Carolina basketball. When her Heels were on the court, nothing else mattered, and now she will be in the front row for every game. She is survived by her mother, Rita Van Duser of Venice; her father and stepmother, David and Patti Fishel of Land O’ Lakes; her beloved paternal grandmother, Ruth Fishel; and her maternal grandparents, Charles and Janet West of Winston-Salem. She is also survived by her brother and sister-in-law, Craig and Susan Fishel; two nieces, Eden and Cecily; and a nephew, David Anthony, all of Marietta, Ga.; and Kemer Petty of Winston-Salem, her true and loyal friend.

In keeping with her expressed wishes, Jennifer will be cremated and her ashes scattered on a quiet beach where she can always be near the ocean and watch the sunsets. Jennifer was not one for memorials and flowers. Instead, for those who loved her and wish to remember her, the greatest respect she could be paid would be to spend a few minutes with her thinking about her words, written a few months before her death: “This is my advice to you. Live life to its fullest. Love and enjoy every moment. Have no regrets. Feel everything good and bad as it is. It is worth it. Know peace. Know love. Know energy. Know light. It will change your life.”
