CONCORD -- The president of Carondelet High School died Monday morning in her home, the private high school's website reported.

The death of Jennifer Martin, who was in her first year at the all-girls' Catholic school, was sudden, according to the website. The message asked the campus community to keep Martin's husband and three children in their prayers.

"For those of you who never had the chance to personally meet Jennifer, there are not words enough to paint a complete picture," the message said. "Jennifer can be best described as 'light' with a genuine heart and infectious smile that would light up a room."
