Family spokeswoman Carrie Luft issued a statement, recognizing the New Canaan mother-of-five would have turned 52 on Sunday. In her statement, Luft acknowledged the family celebrated "...Jennifer’s light, grace, and laughter as we continue to mourn her loss."

Luft pointed to how Interval House Hartford will hold "Purple with a Purpose": The Jennifer Farber Dulos Memorial Walk to End Domestic Violence. Running from October 1 - 4, the statement says while "Jennifer’s case has received a great deal of attention," there are "a number of stories of most victims and survivors of partner violence are never told."

Police presume that Jennifer Dulos has died, but no body has been found. Luft thanks law enforcement for their ongoing efforts to bring closure to Jennifer's disappearance.

Statement from Carrie Luft on Behalf of the Family and Friends of Jennifer Farber Dulos
On Sunday, September 27, Jennifer Farber Dulos would have turned 52. Her birthday this year coincides with the eve of Yom Kippur, the day of atonement and the holiest of all days in the Jewish faith. We will celebrate Jennifer’s light, grace, and laughter as we continue to mourn her loss. We also reinforce our support of the Connecticut State Police, New Canaan Police, and other law enforcement organizations in their ongoing efforts to bring closure to Jennifer’s disappearance.
Next week, from October 1 to October 4, Interval House Hartford will hold “Purple with a Purpose”: The Jennifer Farber Dulos Memorial Walk to End Domestic Violence. We are moved that Interval House is memorializing Jennifer in this effort to help others experiencing intimate partner violence. Jennifer’s case has received a great deal of attention, but the stories of most victims and survivors of partner violence are never told.
Now more than ever, it is crucial to take action. Vital services, including family shelters and legal aid, have been reduced or shuttered during the pandemic, and vulnerable people are at increased risk. We encourage those who can do so to support Interval House, either by sponsoring a walking team or making a direct donation. Please keep Jennifer in your hearts and honor her strength and love by supporting “Purple with a Purpose.”
