Jessica Campbell Memorial

Donation protected

On 12/29/2020 our dear Jessica suddenly and unexpectedly passed away, leaving behind her 10-year-old son, Oliver. While coping with this unexpected and tragic turn of events and planning for Oliver’s future, the family is also faced with unexpected cremation, memorial, and probate expenses.  All funds collected will go towards meeting expenses and providing for Oliver. 

A true adventurer in every sense of the word, Jessica packed a staggering amount of experiences into her tragically short lifetime. Listening to her talk, excitedly recounting her tales at a mile-a-minute, one could be forgiven for thinking “is this b*tch for real?” But she was in fact for real and there was no one else like her.  Traveling the world, acting, becoming a doctor, being Mom to the coolest kid ever; these bucket list items wove the quotidian fabric of her reality. Her passion for life and the people in it was astounding. In addition to the impressive energy she poured into her own life, Jessica, on multiple occasions, dropped everything to travel across state lines and care for her loved ones in need. She was fun, she was loud, she was compassionate and loyal; no matter what she did, she was always uniquely Jessica. Our phone chat is full of hilariously inappropriate memes.  She could always be counted on as the instigator of, or at the very least a willing accomplice to, various forms of mischief and hijinks. To know her is to have an over-the-top story involving her. To know her is to have known true friendship.

Organizer of this fundraiser:  Sarah Wessling. I am Jessica’s cousin. Funds will be deposited into aUSAA checking account in my name created solely for this purpose. I will distribute the funds to either pay expenses directly (expenses including but not limited to Jessica Campbell’s medical care, autopsy, cremation, expenses related to memorial service, legal expenses etc) or for reimbursement for expenses. Funds will be made available for Jessica‘s son Oliver Papkin’s reasonable expenses (including but not limited to school fees, clothing, housing, transportation, utilities, medical expenses, groceries). Expenses will either be paid directly or reimbursed. Financial records will be kept.
