Just wait. Her spleen will be the next thing to go.

Jennifer actually mourning for Jack or dedicating something in his memory would be nice to see, it'd renew my lost faith in the character - not that I'm expecting anything like that from Tomlin's pen.
But she loves Dan "with all her heart". So there's no space left for any Jack love.
... or any Abby love or JJ love apparently. Maybe she's supposed to love them with her spleen since her cardiac organ appears to be fully occupied.
Seriously though, does a grown woman with two kids really say something like that? That line sounds nice when someone is 25, but when they're 45 -- and recently widowed, no less -- it just sounds disingenuous at best.
Jen-Jen's dialogue is so adolescent--the "with all my heart" line is just one of the worst offenders. I can't remember the last time she said anything truly intelligent or insightful--it's all mean-girl huffing and puffing, or lovesick teenage gushing with her these days. She's locked into her role as daytime's oldest ingenue.
