Support for Jessica’s Family

I am heartbroken to inform that Jess has gained her wings and is in a far more beautiful place than in a hospital where she has been for the past couple of days. Last night Jess passed away in the arms of family. She was admitted to the hospital Thursday evening with a severe nose bleed and pulmonary embolism, the doctors worked extremely hard to care for her however her body was fighting any help it was getting. She put up a fight to the very end. After her oxygen levels being very low for quite some time, she stopped breathing on her own and released her soul to Heaven. I can confidently say that Jessica knew all the love and support she had around her, and that gave her the will to fight. 

The money raised will be going to Jessica’s Mom, Julie to cover any medical and service costs. Also to donate to Jessica’s close friends who are fighting cancer like she was. Any amount of money helps, if you are wanting to help and don’t know how. Thank you for your support to her family and friends at this time. 

With my condolences to all with love, 
Paige Smotherman 
(Jess’s little cousin)
