Jennifer Alexandra Burden

Jennifer Heise Burden passed away unexpectedly on August 6, 2019, while she was resting in her home in Albemarle, NC. A memorial service celebrating Jennifer’s life will be held 11am August 20 at Mount Pleasant UMC, 1260 College St., Mt. Pleasant NC 28124, officiated by Rev. Earl Bradshaw.

Jennifer is survived by her husband Roland Burden of Albemarle; her children Kirsten and Keanan Grieser of Raleigh; parents Wolfgang and Rosita Heise of Charlotte; brother Thorsten Heise, his wife Tracey, and their children Nicholas and Alexandra of Charlotte; sister Nicolette Endisch, her husband Stefan, and their son Christian of Buerstadt, Germany; mother-in-law Helen Fuller-Grieser.

Jennifer was born in Atlanta, Georgia. She spent her early childhood in New Jersey and then moved to Charlotte in 1982.  From then on she called North Carolina her home. She graduated from Appalachian State University with a BA in Social Work in 1993 and a Master’s in Counseling from Liberty University in 2016.  She began her career as a social worker, helping those in need in counties surrounding Charlotte. After achieving her Master’s, she worked as a counselor with Monarch in Albemarle, NC, where she did what she loved the most: helping others who were struggling in their daily lives.

Jennifer’s journey in life was anything but ordinary, and she dealt with many personal challenges, both internal and external. However, it was those experiences and what she learned from them that she hoped would transform and guide those that she counseled to make better choices.

Jennifer’s kids were her pride and joy. She was highly intelligent, compassionate, talented in the arts, and a lover of animals. She will be missed by all that she touched. Our hearts ache that we were not there to say goodbye, but we know that you have sailed on to heaven as a gathering of angels lifted you away.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in Jennifer’s name to Mount Pleasant UMC, PO Box 237, Mt. Pleasant, NC 28214.
