Mountain top memorial

Memorial to Jennifer ? at the top of Vancouver Island's Mt Washington...
Recently I was at the top of Vancouver Island's Mt Washington for a sombre occasion -- we were there to scatter the ashes of a family member.

The only time I've ever been to the top of the mountain is in winter for ski season. I had never seen the peak without snow. As our group was exploring the area looking for the best place to conduct the ceremony, I noticed a pair of skis and a helmet pinned to a tree. Getting closer I discovered that it was a memorial to someone named Jennifer who apparently died at the young age of 31 in 2004.

Google hasn't shed any light on who Jennifer was except for a blog post from someone else who was equally intrigued and mystified.
