We would also like to acknowledge her closest and most cherished friend, Sunshyne Hansell. Sunshyne’s incredible kindness and generosity is so appreciated. Any time of the day or night, no matter what was needed, Sunshyne was always there.
The family has absolutely been overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of so many of their friends and members of the community. The kind offers of help have been such a comfort to the family.
It is so difficult to lose someone so young. Jessica was a devoted wife and mother and fierce friend. She was at every Capitan school and sporting event. She was feisty, funny, beautiful, and much loved by so many. And she will be terribly missed. Her family will need your kind words and support during this devastating time. We hope you will share your memories of Jess with J.D. and her kids.
