Support Jess's Recovery!

Those of you who have been lucky enough to have gotten to know Jess Kostenblatt know that she is one of the most compassionate, selfless, caring people you've met. Jess has made it her life's mission to provide others with support, positivity, and a LOT of laughter. If you know Jess, you also know that she is a very strong-willed, independent woman who will never ask for help; this is a common trait of the strong women in her family. With that in mind, we - Leslie, a teammate; and James, her brother - have created this page on her behalf.

As many of you know, Jess had a series of unexpected medical emergencies this past October. You may have learned through Facebook or from Jess herself that—among other things—she has been battling and has been treated for intracranial pressure, vision loss, and extensive blood clots in the veins of her brain. Thanks in large part to the amazing staff at Columbia Presbyterian, she is out of the hospital and is in great spirits, but is still working with countless specialists and medical professionals to determine the cause of her symptoms and develop a treatment plan. 

In order to enable Jess and her family to focus 100% on her recovery, we have set up this GoFundMe page to alleviate the inevitable financial burden that this type of unexpected medical emergency will create. Help us support Jess by keeping her focused on rest and rehab in the coming months!
