The Tonner Doll Company has decided to honor Jazz by releasing a doll designed after her. Company founder Robert Tonner has taken the design and sculpting of the doll on his own shoulders because the project is that important to him. When asked why Jazz, he said:
Jazz stands for everything I respect from a human nature point of view, she's incredibly brave, intelligent, warmhearted and creative.
