Jessica was born on September 11th, 1949 in Brooklyn New York. Jessica was the first born child to her adoring parents Jerry and Angie. From her onset, Jessica was a “handful”. She was blessed with a younger sister Theresa who by any standard would become her truest partner in life. Later, Jessica’s parents blessed her with a younger brother Jerry. Jessica gave birth to her only child Anthony in December of 1975. At the perfect time in her life she met Max. The two would marry and along with Max’s children Eric and Stephanie create their blended family.
Jessica family circle would come to include her brother in law Ross and sister in law Kathy. The connection between Jessica and her siblings grew only stronger with the addition of their “boys”. Jessica’s nephew’s Billy, Danny, Matt, Jerry and Johnny would each go on to play an integral part of Jessica’s life. Never was there a birthday, anniversary or special occasion that would escape the watchful eye of Jess. She came to be the unofficial (nor appointed) keeper of the family’s ever growing events calendar.
By all accounts Jessica flourished most in her role as “gram”. She was blessed with her 3 grandchildren by her loving daughter in law Tracy. AJ, Faith and Alyssa were her greatest points of pride. Their lives were enmeshed, with little to no physical or emotional space between them. Her presence in their lives was constant and her impression will be everlasting. There was no greater love in her life than that she shared with her grandchildren.
Jessica encompassed the heart of a fighter. Her spirit, determination and resolve would accompany her to the end. While certainly our Jess will be missed, the imprint she leaves behind will endure for generations.
I walk by faith, not by sight.
I will always love you ma.
