Let the memory of Jessica be with us forever

This memorial website was created in memory of our loved one, Jessica Jacobs, 36, born on August 21, 1979 and passed away on November 3, 2015. 

Jessica was a special person and unique in every way. She left this world so suddenly and way too soon. She was and continues to be very loved.

Jessica's wish was to be cremated and we have honored that wish. There are plans in the works to do a remembrance/ celebration of life at some point and when those are finalized I will post on Jessica's Facebook page, as well as here. Please understand the family is extremely shocked about her sudden passing and we are doing the best we can to respect her memory as we go through this painful process. We thank you very much for your patience. 

In lieu of flowers, we ask that tribute donations be made to BARCS (Baltimore Animal Rescue and Care Shelter). You can donate directly to BARCS at link http://baltimoreanimalshelter.org/donate (for BARCS to send acknowledgment on your behalf to us please use my address which is 305 3rd St. Colonial Beach, VA 22443.  You can also make contributions if it is more convenient at my PayPal account paypal.me/JenniferJacobs Sorry for the copy/paste (please note: Jessica). All funds donated will be forwarded to BARCS in her name. It is my intention that through either of these methods I have the opportunity to thank everyone personally. BARCS is an organization that was very near and dear to Jessica's heart. She would be happy to know that in her passing, she was helping these animals. I believe if she could, she would have taken them all home herself. 

Thank you again for your kind and loving support. It is appreciated more than words can say.

"It was 2 yeas ago today that I got that fateful call.  It was so sudden and the shock was mind numbing.  I had just talked to Jessica the day before and I thank God that I returned her call after work, though I was tired and didn't wait until the next day.   We had a great conversation and she said "Talk to you soon, love you, mom"  ... that night, she was gone.  The sadness lingers, sometimes worse than others ... Jessica will always make me smile."

"Remembering Jessica  on her Birthday."

This tribute was added by Leah Sawyer on 21st August 2017

"Jess Jakes and I shared homeroom and some classes, and we just clicked.  We laughed and talked about life, and boys, and school gossip as I braided her long dark hair into elaborate medieval styles, and she patiently doodled the most gorgeous dahlias.  She taught me about  local Fells Point bands that I just was never going to be cool enough to go see, and (I think ironically) introduced me to glam rock and electronica.  To this day, I carry her kind of pen -- I just pulled it out right now -- which she claimed was the best ever - Pilot Precise V5, blue, extra fine. ("None of this 'fine' crap, it's gotta be extra fine.")  We lost track after high school, until 3 years ago, not long before she passed away.  I wish I had a chance to come to Baltimore to see her again.  She was plagued by so many health problems, any of which alone would be enough to take down most people, but she still had the spunk to go off about the crazy bikers who almost knock her down on the street, and her wonderful boyfriend.  I'm glad we reconnected before her death, and think of her often."

"It has been a year ... never a day goes by that I don't think of you.   You were a light that faded back and forth from bright white to shades of gray and now all your suffering is over.  I am happy for you my sweet baby girl that you no longer suffer,  but sad for the emptiness your passing has left"

"Jessica was special, there is no doubt about it.  She was funny from the very beginning.  Jessica started playing piano when she was about 5 and got a keyboard for Christmas.  We started getting her lessons because she expressed such an interest and seemed to catch on so quickly.  Every Saturday morning, I took her for piano lessons and she excelled.  We bought her a piano for her 16th birthday.  She knew that Beethoven's fur Elise was one of my favorite pieces and anytime that she knew I was upset with her about something, she would sit down at the piano and play.  It always made me smile."

"My thoughts, prayers and love are with you all at this very sad time in your lives!!!! although death frees the loved one to move forward in the universe it also leaves behind the loved ones that must feel the pain of mourning Jessica's death.  May God surround you all in His loving arms and help you as you travel this painful road!!"

"A very unique, smart and wonderfully sarcastic individual. She was kind of my left brain in a right brain kind of way. I know I should have been back to help her with support for what she had given to me, but I know she understands as anything electrical doesn't work the same lately even this far away. Keep it up JJ. Miss ya. Glad I saved your voice mails. XXX. See ya soon as you already know. Foz"

"To the Family of Jessica,

Please except my deepest condolences.  Although I didn't have the pleasure of knowing Jessica, I was touched because she was my age.  I can't imagine having my life cut so short.   I hope that you'll find comfort in knowing that you can see your loved one again during a time when "death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.  The former things have passed away." (Revelation 21:4)"
