Jessica, you inspired and encouraged so many others through your constant smile and positive views of this place we call our earthly home. Your love of not only your human companions, but of those who are feathered, or who walk on 4 paws, spoke volumes for your sweet disposition. No wonder so many loved you...no wonder so many will miss you. You are still with us in so many ways...and so, you will remain s inspiration and encouragement for us all.

Jess is my childhood friend. We have so many memories that we share. I miss her smile and her laugh. I am forever grateful that we became friends 20+ years ago. She will always have a piece of my heart. I am still in a bit of denial and saddened by her passing, but I am trying to think of her passing as a reminder to us all to keep strength and thankfulness a part of my everyday life.

My dearest daughter. One week ago today you left this earth for your Heavenly home. I know you are in a far better place today and for that I rejoice. But the hole you left here will never be filled, but the promise of you greeting me some day soon gives me great peace. I love you.....MORE. xxoo mom

We only met Jessica 1 time at Matt & Steph's wedding as she & Katie manned the register & passed out programs,but loved her bubbly personality & smile. She was so happy & we were too that our sweet neice had found such a wonderful man to love & spend the rest of her life in such kind loving family. Wish we had been able to get to know her better but distances prevented that. She was like me loving

Jess..Words can't express thu sorrow I feel ...knowing you and being your choir 'buddy' for so many years has been a blessing beyond words. You have touched my life in so many ways, with your smile, your infectious loving personality, and above all, your steadfast love of the Lord. You always knew when I was hurting, and your tender touch let me know that you were there for me. You alone heard any wrong word or note and it was

Jess, you will always be my Gunnie and I will always be your Gunner. Words cannot express how special you are and how many lives you have touched. You held me up so many times when I could not get up by myself. Our angel on earth and now in heaven, God called home one of his best angels and now you are soaring with no pain. Miss you so much and love you more... in His love, until we meet again.

I met Jess a few times through my sister, Hannah. I am very grateful to have been given the opportunity to know Jess. She always had a smile on her face. I have a blanket she embroidered for my oldest son, which I absolutely love. I wish I could have gotten to know her better. She truly was an inspiration. I love looking at the pictures of her with Gracie. I know Jess will be missed by many <3>

We only met Jessica a few times at CCI functions, but always found her smile and resolve to be a reminder of how much we love the folks we meet through CCI. We hold her and her family up in prayer as she moves on to look over us from above.
We are very thankful for the short time we knew her.
