Jan was one of the greatest persons I will have ever known and she will be dearly missed. She has a husband and family just as great and you were her pride and joy. Every time I have thought of Jan and will think of her, it always brings a smile.

Jan was a treasure and true blessing to all that knew her. I was fortunate enough to see her on a daily basis when she worked for Odfjell. No matter what the day, what the situation, or what the mood, Jan wanted to only bring you light and her special sense of humor. She made a difference, every day to all she came in contact - in big and small ways. You are missed, God Bless to Joe and the entire Wattik Family. My prayers are with you.

Jan was one of a kind. Her zest for life was contagious. She was so many things for me that there is not enough words to express. I loved her dearly and was honored to call her one of my best friends. She will always hold a special place in my heart. You all will be in my thoughts and prayers.
