Jessica was my childhood best friend. We enjoyed swim team together & December birthday parties. She had a love for Pepsi and I thought she was going to become the next Brittany Spears with her amazing singing voice. The last I heard from her was when I announced I was going to have my first baby girl. She was so happy because she was also going to be having a baby girl. She was so excited to be having a girl along with her precious boy. ❤️ I hope you're using that beautiful voice and singing with the angels.

Ken, I am so very sorry. I look at her picture on this obituary, and I just cannot believe such a beautiful young woman is gone. But I know Jess and Nancy are now together, completely healed and healthy and definitely in no pain. Hang on to your precious memories!
