  • She introduced herself as Jess. She took care of me where she had just gotten a job. She was a kind calm spirit woman that had a great demeanor for her job. That night she left she wasn’t feeling well. I still can’t imagine this happened.

  • Jess was an amazing friend and an amazing person. I’m glad you got to meet her, I’m going to miss her.

  • After my bed frame broke and I was trapped at precarious angle on the floor. Jess sat with my head and chest in her lap knowing that I suffer from claustrophobia. Jess calmly talked to me and helped me through a rough time. We waited together for the EMT people to arrive. Again I will miss her and the world of caregivers will miss her because she had sincere compassion.
