What is thisJ

A person I correspond with ends every email with the letter J. At first, I thought it was just a typo, but now I see it's consistent over dozens of emails. Now I'm curious if it's a thing
, or if maybe it's some artifact of some unencoded character, or what.

This is generally how it will occur:
Thanks for the blah blah blah! I will let everyone know about the blah blah blah. I'll be in touchJ
Capital J, no space, no ending punctuation.
It looks like her (work) email gets routed through gmail (to my gmail address, which I check on gmail). The font of her emails appears to be the default outlook reply (blue text, whatever non-gmail font that is), but nothing really special.
As soon as I realized it wasn't an errant typo, I thought maybe she was using it to sign off, since my name starts with a J. But she does it on other emails that are sent to multiple folks who don't have J names.
For what it's worth, I've met this person in real life and she has both of her hands and all of her fingers and appears to have all of her mental faculties.
Anyway, I'm very curious. Any ideas what might be going on here?
