Jessica graduated with high honors from Bishop Kearney High School and earned an Associate Degree from Monroe Community College.
Jessica was, without a doubt, someone who could light up any room she entered, not only due to her ever-changing, brightly-colored hair or her eye-catching fashion but because of her unfailingly positive outlook even on the darkest of days.
Over the years she spent her time devoted to making other people happy. She even created a Facebook page called “A Positive Alternative” with the sole purpose of posting uplifting messages for others to enjoy.
From a young age, she was a stubborn little go-getter who would stop at nothing to get what she wanted. She wasn’t afraid to take chances, take a road trip, jump out of a plane, or get her hands dirty while exploring the world around her.
As a child, Jessie would spend hours on end playing outside without ever getting bored and had a curious mind. When she wasn’t navigating the wonders of nature, she was playing soccer, softball, swimming, and horseback riding. She was one of the youngest students in Monroe County to receive her boating license while studying with her Mom.
Jessica thoroughly enjoyed computer and video games. Growing up, she spent many late nights battling her cousins and friends alike in games like Mario Kart, Pokémon Stadium, and GTA, to name a few of her favorites. Jessica absolutely loved Disney movies as a child and even went on to work the 6-month College Program that Disney offered in 2011. When she returned to Rochester, NY, she became a Certified Dog Groomer for countless happy customers. Some of her dogs appeared in fashion shows. When the Pandemic hit, she used her time to complete a Pharmacy Tech Certification and started work in a local hospital. While doing all of that she signed up for more courses to finish her degree in Criminal Justice. In January 2023 she decided to leave New York and headed back to Florida where she continued the journey she started years before at Disney. It was her “happy place”.
Jessica’s personality was not one-dimensional. She was a little bit of everything. She was a giver, a model, a mashed potato aficionado, a lover of all animals, a devoted friend, a positive force, a determined young woman, a tough cookie, a beautiful person inside and out, and a confidante to those dear to her. She charmed everyone she encountered and her positive energy will echo through our hearts and minds until the end of time.
Family and friends are invited to call on Saturday, May 20th from 12 Noon – 3PM at Miller Funeral and Cremation Services, Inc, 3325 Winton Road South, where a Memorial Service will be held following calling at 3PM.
