    I am so very sorry for the tragic loss of your beautiful daughter. I read that she was a twin and I wanted to respectfully pass along some information to her dear twin Jason. There is a support group for twins who have lost their twin it is called Twinless Twins Intl. You can find it on the Internet I too am a twinless twin and this organization has been a God send to dealing with the unique loss of a twin. I will be praying God’s mercy and peace on your entire family during this very difficult time.

    I am so very sorry to Jessica’s family and will be praying that you make it through this awful and trying time. I remember first meeting Jessica when I was in the 7th grade and thinking how nice she was and how she had such a beautiful smile. I remember being in high school culinary arts together and laughing and making jokes about only making snicker doodles and purple Kool-Aid. I still can’t believe she is gone….It’s hard when something like this happens and you don’t really know what to do…who to turn to. I hope with time you will find a way. I will be praying for her whole family. She was a beautiful person and will be sorely missed. My sincerest condolences go out to each and every one of her family members. May Jessica be at peace and God bless.

    Jessica, I held you as an infant. Even then I knew you and Jason were special. Not because you were Derek and Sheila’s children, but because it was always in your eyes. The last time I saw you the smile was there as usual and a hug accompanied. You left an indelible mark on our lives and you are gone to a better place but will never be forgotten… Derek, Sheila, Jason and Marlee, I share in your grief but cannot relate. I can try and I am but I simply cannot. I love you all very much, I always have and I always will. We are here for you in every way possible. Past the mourning, be joyous in that you raised two of the most beautiful children God ever witnessed. He is with her now and caring for her. To ALL of Jessica’s friends, Jason’s friends and the family my heart is with yours. It is broken but we will pick up the pieces and make continue to live with Jessica watching over us and smiling upon us. She was too much for this earth and too good as well. Jason, I’m here for you any time, night or day. You always know that and you live your life for you, your family and for your twin. She loves you unconditionally and always. God bless you one and all…

    My deepest condolences. I did not know Jessica but it absolutely rips my heart apart to hear when we loose any young person. Especially as bright, pretty, and the apparent energy for life she had. Her parents, siblings, and mentors are commended for it. I am so, so sorry. I did take note of Dr. Stanton’s message here and I want to pass on that I do know him and have worked with him in the past. He is a wonderful, caring person. I wish that Jessica had crossed my path in life. I’m sure she would have made a remarkable impression. Charles S. Johnston

    Young parents visiting young friends/parents. I will never forget holding you both, the photos we took in Long John Silver hats and how you each smiled and giggled at Susan and I. These are the earliest memories of time spent with you and then as now you were both too beautiful to describe. I know that I saw two people who loved you with all their hearts and still do. You are loved Jessica, you are most certainly missed and you will never be forgotten. Go be with God and watch over your loves.

    I would just like to say that I will never forget Jessica. I always admired her big pretty smile. She was an attractive young lady. Jessica and many of my other friends were walking together to graduate in December. It will be hard on everyone in the Early Childhood Dept. when we start school for Fall 10 without Jessica.

    There are no words that can give comfort in this time of sadness. But I will say that God has promised never to leave you nor forsake you, although we sometimes question God, He will not put more on us than we can bear. I remember having Jessica at Science Hill and when you saw Jessica, you always saw Beth and those smiles that lit up the hallways and classroom. She will truly be missed, but thank God she left us with plenty of memories to reflect on in the coming days. May God continue to comfort the family as you go through this difficult time. I’m praying for you. -T.R. Dunn

    I am so very sorry to hear of Jessica’s untimely death. Although I didn’t know Jessica well, each time I seen her she always had a smile on her face, and greeted everyone as if she had known them her entire life. While she may be gone, Jessica, and the impression that she left on everyone she met, will never be forgotten.

    Words can never describe the type of person Jessica was, you just had to know her or even just meet her once and she’d be permanently imprinted in your memory. I cannot even imagine what you her family is going through right now. I went to high school and college with Jessica, and in that time i can’t remember a time that i see her without a smile on her face. She was a beautiful person inside and out. She was graceful, gentle, funny, and outgoing. Even though she was here for just a short while she made a big difference just by being Jessica, and i know she’s looking down and smiling right now knowing her mission on earth was successfully accomplished. My condolences to you all during this trying period. And may the good Lord comfort and guide you through this ordeal.
