Johnny Fairplay, a former Survivor contestant that many love to hate, told Us Magazine "Jen was such a beautiful person. I wish life was as simple as survivor because i know for a fact there are 300 of us that would use every immunity idol and jury vote in the world to have her back."

Who was Jennifer Lyon : Lyon was a previous competitor on the popular reality show Survivor Palau, which aired in 2005. Lyon came in fourth place overall.

In 2005, Lyon was diagnosed with stage three breast cancer at the young age of 33. She opted for a bilateral mastectomy coupled with chemotherapy. At that time, the cancer had went into remission. Lyon would go on to blog about her disease and treatment. This offered hope to other women struggling with the disease.

    Policy makers have taken measures such as lowering reserve requirements for some banks, providing tax breaks and accelerating public spending to shore up an economy that expanded at the slowest pace in six quarters for the January-March period.
