Given that her twitter says she's running behind, I've removed my CNR. I'm in no rush to give up hope on an agent!
CNR 8/2/19
The site says they typically reply in 4 weeks, but she had tweeted a while back she was running behind, but we're now at 8 weeks so I'm CNRing this.

This from Jennifer's twitter:
July 1: just a note: I am SO behind on queries/etc but I am getting through them! If you haven't heard from me, I love you, I will be in touch, watch this space for updates
July 10: Update! I will be closing to queries one week from today, Wednesday July 17th to give deserved time & attention to the oodles of terrific work stagnating in my inbox. Any unsolicited queries that come my way after that point I will be deleting unread.

So just maybe it's taking her longer than her typical 4 weeks to respond.

In the meantime, I got an R&R from another agent, made the revisions, and offered on 4/24/19 to send it over if she was still interested.

5/28/2019: Asked me to send the R&R version
6/16/2019: Sent revised full

(For a YA Fantasy, ~99K.)

So there may be hope if you're one of those folks with an older full out! At the very least, not getting a response for a September submission didn't necessarily mean I was in "no, thank you!" territory.

Jennifer seems to request fulls very quickly within 2 weeks so I’m now closing this.
