Jess' family and friends have my sincere thoughts and prayers. May you find the strength to make it through. Live in her memories.

Also, before people come on here with their inconsiderate wit and speculations please first put yourself in the shoes of her parents, grandparents and brother.

I didn't know her well but she was always nice to me when I did see her we would talk and bs with each other. I am so sorry for the family's loss and I hope you find the strength you need from your friends and the community. She was a great person and it is very sad news.

there is nothing in the world that will fill the hole that is inside me right now. jessica was one of my best friends and she was just a bridesmaid in my wedding on saturday. it was horrible to find out that this happened on our honeymoon. i cant stop but to think that if i would have been there to hang out with her that last night then she would not have gotten in the car. since this is my last night here everything that i do is to jessica. i will toast and cheers in her name. she was one of my best friends and i think that she would want us to try and have a good time on our last night here. i love you jessica and just want to hear your voice again

It is hard to understand why things happen the way they do, but if we keep our heads up and think of all of the great times we had with Jessica, We WILL be ok. Sam, yes Jessica would want you to have a great last day on your honeymoon. Be safe see you soon.

I went to high school with Jess, we didn`t hang out with the same crowd but we always got along. Years after school whenever she would see me she would always say high. I have come and gone from Waterloo alot in the last ten years, she was one of the few people around here that has rembered me. I will always be gratefull for the kindness she has shown me, I am gratefull to call Jessica my friend! She will be missed, my deepest condolences go out to her family, those of us that knew her will never forget her!

I APOLOGIZE FOR THE WAS I RESPONDED, IT WAS NOT MEANT THAT WAY, I KNEW HER A BIT MAINLY BECAUSE WE DISCUSSED HER MOM IN THE PAST AS I WAS AT THE ACCIDENT WHEN IT OCCURRED, I AM SO SORRY TO THE FAMILY AND FRIENDS. PART OF MY RESPONSE WAS SHOCK AND ALL OF THE BAD HAPPENINGS THAT HAVE BEEN OCCURRING IN WATERLOO, I HATE IT, LIFE IS TOO SHORT. ALL OF HER FRIENDS NEED TO REMEMBER HER KINDNESS AND STRENGTH AND REMEMBER YOU WILL SEE HER AGAIN IN HEAVEN.

Jess was not a loca chica 'crazy girl', she just new how to live life to the fullest. I just came from her memorial service tonight. It is so hard to believe that someone so young and full of life is gone. I know that as the years go by i will lose more and more friends, I am just getting tired of burying so many people at so young of ages!
