Riverhead kindergarten teacher killed in crash

Family and friends are mourning the loss of beloved wife, mother and teacher, Jennifer Mager, after she was killed in a car accident over the weekend.
Mager, 37, of Riverhead, was returning home from a family wedding Friday evening with her husband, Thomas, and 2-year-old daughter, Delaney, when their car was struck by an oncoming BMW.
Mager was killed instantly, while her husband and daughter both survived.
Neil Ogden, Mager's father, wants people to remember his daughter as a loving, caring and beautiful person. "If you needed help, she was there. She was involved," he says. "She was involved in the church, she was in the choir. She had a magnificent voice."
But it is not just family members who are grief stricken by the tragedy. The Shoreham-Wading River School District, where Mager has worked for the past nine years, is also suffering from her loss.
The district released a statement calling Mager, "a dedicated and talented teacher who was a valued member of the community."
The driver of the BMW, David Jacobs, 28, of Port Jefferson, was not charged in the accident.
Mager's family is accepting donations to the Kent Animal Shelter and the Children's Home of Port Jefferson in her memory.
