Lindsey Jo Alexandra Minikus, JoJo to anyone lucky enough to know her, age 26, of Highlands Ranch, Colorado, passed away on Saturday March 19, 2016 at Swedish Hospital with her family by her side. This is not the story of her death, but the story of her life, which was full of love and family.
JoJo was born in Cedar Falls, Iowa and grew up there until her family moved to Highlands Ranch, Colorado when she was seven years old. She attended Mountain Vista High School. JoJo was a friend to anyone that she met, and to know her and not be touched by her light and infectious smile was impossible.
