  1. Dear Linda and Jim,
    I just found out about Jessica’s passing. Linda, you spoke to my sister, Rose Ellen Cunningham, yesterday, and she told me. How tragic to lose such an accomplished, and much loved woman. I can’t imagine how sad you must be. You must be so proud of all she did. I’m so sorry that you’ve lost her.

    I remember Jessica from when we were in elementary school at St Margaret’s Episcopal School. When she was in third grade and I was in fourth, our school choir did a musical based on Shel Silverstein’s poetry. I still remember Jessica singing and accompanying herself on the guitar in the show. She did so well and she had such great rhythm and musicality for her age.

    Buckets of sympathy and kind thoughts to her family, friends, and colleagues during this horrid time.

  4. I sadly just learned of Jessica’s death yesterday. Jessica was a great friend and mentor during my fellowship. We had kept in touch every few months since that time and I was incredibly saddened to learn of her passing. Jessica was always there to laugh with you or to lend an ear when you needed it. She was supportive and a great colleague. I worked my last shift of fellowship with her, overnight, and she had a bottle champagne in her car to celebrate with me in the morning. She deserved to live a long, happy, and healthy life. As said by another in a condolence above…rest in power, Jessica. I will miss you.

  5. Dear Linda and Jim, we are so saddened to learn only today that your beautiful daughter Jessica has passed away. Please accept out sincerest condolences.
    Susan and Gene Spiritus and family.
