The Jana Marie Lambert Memorial Scholarship was established in 2016 to honor Jana’s life. Born on
December 1st, 1968 in DeSoto, TX, Jana died from complications due to breast cancer on April 25, 2015
in Broomfield, CO. Jana is survived by her mother Janice, husband Ken and her children Carter and
Angelica. In her 47 years of life, Jana was the embodiment of optimism, lifting the spirit of everyone she came into
