  7. I am so sorry to hear about Jessica’s passing…I did not know her well however we had opportunities to talk throughout the year at the baseball and football fields while watching our sons play and while taking pictures.

    Jessica will be greatly missed and I can only imagine what a loss this is to Johnny. He will be kept in our prayers and I hope to see him back on the fields continuing to make his mom proud.

    With much sadness,
    Lisa Spencer

  14. Mark,
    I was so saddened to hear about Jessica. Although her and I were family, I really didn’t know her until we really talked at Kathryn’s graduation party. I loved her and thought she had such an awesome personality but most of all, she so loved her son Johnny. This came through in so much of our conversation. You are in my thoughts and prayers and god will help you through this. Be strong, Johnny needs you and I know you can do it.. you have friends that will help as well. One day at a time. Love, Colleen

  15. Jessica was such a down-to-earth person,very accepting and open-minded of others. Loved her son Johnny.My condolences for Johnny and her parents. God Bless

  16. Jess-you will always be remembered in our hearts. God has better plans for you,and Im sure your gonna make him laugh the way you always make us laugh. Your personality and love of life speaks for itself. My deepest sympathy goes out to Johnny and the rest of your family..if there is anything we can do–please let me know. Amy Zampell

  18. To Jessica’s Family:
    My heart goes out to you all in this extremely difficult time. I have known Jessica all my life, we grew up together and I was very sad to hear of her passing. Losing a loved one is the hardest thing to have to deal with. Over time, you need to make sure you keep the memories of her alive… and cherish them with all you have. I know I have some very fond memories from when we were growing up. If there is anything my family can do, please do not hesitate to ask.
    All my love ~ Jessica
