Jodi, Mom

Season 3, Ep. 2 – Season 3, Ep. 12

Time of Death: “Diabetic Lesbians and a Blushing Bride,” Season 3, Episode 12

Cause of Death: Drug Overdose

We first met Jodi at a point where her life was quickly falling to pieces thanks to an addiction that  was ruining her life and relationships. With a little help from Christy and Bonnie, Jodi began to turn her life around by beginning her journey into sobriety. Christy and Bonnie took Jodi under their wings and helped to do their part in making sure she stayed sober.

Soon she was able to patch things up between her sister, got a job and was continuing to rely on Christy as her sponsor to keep her sobriety in check.

Jodi was among the many guests at Marjorie’s bachelorette party, but she skipped out early in order to see her new boyfriend – despite Christy’s warnings of the dangers of starting a new relationship so soon after becoming sober. Unfortunately, Jodi would die of an overdose while in the company of her new boyfriend the following day as her friends were celebrating the nuptials of Marjorie and Mr. Perugian.
