Jessica was a wonderful person who was a real reflection of what a good person should be. Her smile and those shining blue eyes always pulled you into her giving soul. Remembering when she was born and the beautiful rosebud lips in her picture has been a gift for me. A wonderful memory and I pray for peace for Debbie and Bruce, Matt, and her beautiful kids. I believe she is home and that is a beautiful place to be. <3

Jessica was such a beautiful person inside and out. Bruce and Debbie you raised a wonderful daughter. Matt you made a great husband to this fantastic young woman. Lauren and Levi you had the best mom in the world. Jessica's love of life and everyone surrounding her will always be there. The definitions of daughter, mother, best friend and beautiful soul doesn't come close to describing Jessica. Fly high with those angels! Love to you all! Love always your cousin-
