Jean Pollock

July 30, 1947 - March 25, 2018

Jean Pollock passed away peacefully in Hillsboro, OR at the age of 70.


Jean is survived by her husband, Ira Pollock, her children, Chris and Jeff Hennessy, her Grandchildren Kiera and Parker Hennessy and her step children, Jake and Rebecca Pollock


Jean was born on July 30, 1947 in Portland, Oregon to parents Clyde and Helen Mills. Jean spent her childhood years in Astoria, OR before moving to the Portland area as an adult. She moved briefly to Tacoma, Washington where her children were born, and then returned back to the Portland area in 1978. Jean had a career as a legal secretary before moving into the real estate field at the end of her career.


Jean was an incredibly hard worker and did whatever she could to provide for her children as a single parent. Although she was never financially well off, they never went without. She is remembered by her children as being extraordinarily strong, always present, patient, and incredibly loving.


Jean was given the gift of becoming a Grandmother as well, she only wished she had become one sooner. She treasured them, loved spoiling them, and did so often.


Jean and Ira first met around 1980, and though they dated off and on, life took them in different directions. Finally, they found their way back to each other and were married on April 9th, 2004. They had an incredible love for each other, the kind everyone hopes of finding. Despite the fact that they were married later in life, they made a lifetime’s worth of wonderful memories together. Their passion was going on cruises, and together they were able to see much of the world. In the end Ira never left her side, and Jean passed on in his loving arms where she belonged.


Jean left us way too soon and will be missed dearly, but the impact of her life on others and the love she gave us all will carry on.
