#FireHeroTuesday kicked off the holiday season of givingtogether we can make sure our Fire Hero Families know that we remember.





  1. Because of Jessica, I walk with Christ today. In junior high, she always went out of her way to carry me to church with her. She always found ways to make her friends and family feel loved from small to big ways.
    She was always looking to serve and love on others. When my youngest was born which was the hardest month of my life at LeBonheur, Jessica never left my side and prayed over my children and me. The dedication she had to those she loved is what I will always remember the most. She loved BIG!
    You will forever live on through the lives you impacted-including mine.
    Love you my friend-from forever ago to forever more!

  2. Jessica was a best friend and Godmother to my 3 children. She has walked with me through so much CHAOS and never once complained. She was loving, generous, thoughtful, FUN, creative and always knew how to show up at just the right time. My family and I miss her more than words can say but we rejoice knowing that she is sitting at Jesus feet worshiping and we will see her again one day. She brightened our lives for many years and we are thankful for the sweet memories with her!!!

    Rejoice in Hope, be patient in trouble, be constant in prayer. Romans 12:12

  3. I knew Jessica from school and church. I met her when she was in 6th grade and I was in seventh. We were friends instantly. She was so caring and thoughtful. Everyone that met her, loved her! When you were in a room with her she could make you feel like you were the most important person to her, so everyone that was friends with her knew her as a BEST friend. I miss her and Kevin coming through my town to stay with us on the way to their many road trip adventures. She also had her opinions and was strong enough to stand by them, an admirable quality! She fought for what she believed in and she fought on the behalf of others. 💙
