EAGLE ROCK — Jennifer Morgan, who along with her husband operated Colorado Wine Co., died this month after battling leukemia, according to a Facebook posting by the Women’s Twentieth Century Club. Morgan, 44, and her husband, John Nugent, were also among the owners of Sunset Beer in Echo Park. Morgan leaves behind her husband and two school-age children.
The Women’s Twentieth Century Club hosted a memorial service for Morgan on Wednesday. She died on July 11.
Morgan and her husband were among a new generation of business owners who set up shop along Colorado Boulevard, Eagle Rock’s main commercial street. In 2012, the couple relocated their business a few blocks east. “It is only because of the support [of the community] that we felt secure doing this,” Morgan said in an interview with The Eastsider. “We just want to continue being worthy of their support.”
