Polak’s family issued a joint statement, saying she loved her job as a daycare teacher at The Apple Tree Preschool in Ajax and working with children.

“She brought sunshine into the lives of everyone she met. She was the devoted mother of two young men whom she adored,” the statement read in part.

“They are absorbing the news of her death with the support of their father. Her grieving parents, sister, grandmother, uncles, aunts and extended family cannot believe that she is gone. Those who knew Jenn through her work will remember that she had a vocation and a passion for working with young children.”

The statement added that the family is asking for privacy as the investigation continues.

“The family accepts this matter is now in the hands of the police and understands that it will take time for the justice system to take its course.”

In a news release, a police spokesperson said that intimate partner violence can take many forms, with the incident serving as an essential reminder.

“It knows no boundaries and can impact people of all ages, genders, races, and socioeconomic backgrounds,” police wrote. “We must come together as a community to support those affected by domestic violence and work towards creating safer environments for everyone.”
