Those fortunate enough to know and love Jess see that she is finally at peace. She passed away on Thursday, February 16, 2023, and was 35.
Jessica’s determination, supported by friends, family, professionals and mentors, empowered her each day. Her special glow, laugh and sparkle was magical. She was courageous, spirited and her smile, strength and fight will be forever felt. She brought so many people together while fighting her demons. Her belief (and daily investment) in the transformation power of education, self-exploration, discipline and humor fueled her to continue to develop and deliver more of what she has always had within herself: strength, intelligence, integrity, grit and compassion.
Through her unique perspective and leadership, she served 2myPlace to help educate young adults and prevent them from exploitation and abuse.
May her memory always inspire us.
