To those who knew Jess, it was a blessed experience.
She radiated goodness and peace from a troubled personal sphere.
I was fortunate enough to call her colleague and flatmate and friend all at the same time.
Many years ago in Wellington, during the heyday of Hospo life, Jess was introduced into my life as a flatmate.
Time went by and friendship was next.
Eventually, Jess joined the ranks and we worked together.
I always new her as a diligent, calm and kind person. These traits to come from a person battling her own demons is a rare example of the possibilities of humanity.

To those who lost Jess this week, I grieve with you, I celebrate with you and I remember with you.

"Remember them well and we never ever lose them"

Remembering Jessica from Ngaio school days and Raroa Intermediate - Richard and Jessica were good friends and one time when we went away on holiday, she looked after Richards green frog, which actually escaped, but he didn't mind!
A lovely young woman now at rest.
Love from Pauline & Alex Neill and family.
