Northside High community mourning loss of beloved teacher

The Northside High School community is devastated after the unexpected death of longtime science teacher Jennifer Bible.

Bible was a beloved teacher who taught human anatomy, physiology, environmental science and earth and space science.

Bible’s sister posted on social media earlier this week that Bible unexpectedly suffered from a blood clot in the main artery of her heart that shattered during what was expected to be a routine cardiac catheterization procedure.

A statement released on Northside High School’s Facebook page read:

“A teacher selflessly touches so many lives, pouring love and knowledge in equal measure to ensure her students feel accepted, welcome, and wanted.”

Northside Principal Lindsey Thompson said the world lost a treasured person.

“No one exemplified this ideal more than Jennifer Bible, who always had a kind word and a listening ear to anyone who needed it. Her students loved her and looked forward to her class every day,” Thompson said.

The school took to its Facebook page and shared a picture and heartfelt message about what Bible meant to the school.

The post received more than 400 shares and 100 comments from students, faculty and loved ones.

Bible was 48 years old. Funeral arrangements have not yet been made.
