Jenna Scott and Michael Swearingin remembered and celebrated on Friday by friends and family.

Hundreds attended Jenna’s Celebration of Life and Michael’s Visitation in Temple.

“Honestly, I just keep thinking it’s not real, I keep thinking I’m in a dream right now and that I’m going to wake up and I’m going to go hang out with Jenna,” said Jacob Gliha, Jenna’s friend.

That’s how many felt on Friday, in shock knowing they will never get to see or talk to their loved ones again.
“It’s really hard, there’s a lot of hurt, a lot of anger with everything that’s happened, it’s so unbelievable,” said Bruce Thomas, Jenna and Michael’s friend.

28 year old Jenna and 32 year old Michael went missing January 4th, 11 days later their bodies were found in Oklahoma.

“Oh, I didn’t believe it at first, not at all. My mom called me while I was at work and was like ‘hey did you hear Jenna’s missing’ and I immediately called Talon and he gave me the rundown and I still just can’t believe it, it’s unreal,” said Gliha.

Friday, friends of both saying they will never forget the impact they had on them.

“Me and her always said these things to each other to never give up, keep pushing, never give up and it definately gives me hope to keep pushing and to go out into the world and do what we talked about doing, healing others,” said Lameka Jones, Jenna’s friend.

“He was just full of life and full of love, he didn’t have an enemy in this world and it’s still a shock that we are here talking about Michael,” said Chris Amonett, Michael’s friend.

Both families supporting each other during this hard time.


“Their loving memory is going to be well remembered,” said Talon Scott, Jenna’s brother.

No arrests have been made in connection to both their deaths.
