I am only a seventh grader, and I was looking up 9/11 for a project. When I saw that your daughter's name was on the list of people who died, I was so sad. It's so hard losing someone at such a young age. I know what it would feel like because one of my cousins had gotten shot in the head 3 times fighting the war in Iraq. God will always be with her when she's up in heaven don't forget. Love you guys and Jessica, too!

I didn't know Jessica personally, but from 2002-2006 I attended the church she helped to found, and I heard so much about her from people who were her friends. In her memory a fund was started that eventually grew to provide the church with the down payment for the purchase of a building. Though I never knew her, her name is a reminder to me that God can bring good out of the greatest evil. May her parents take comfort that many have come to know Christ through Jessica's legacy.

To the parents:

All our thoughts are with you in such a hard time. The reason for this message is my partner gave birth to a baby girl on September 11th, 2008, and we have named her Jessie. A 9-11 tribute song was playing on the radio at the time she was born. I am not a church person, but I felt that something prompted me to be here now writing this to you.

All our love,
Chris (Manchester, England) x

I can't believe it's been seven years already! Today is Sept 11, 2008. Jessica and I were friends for too short a time. I met her through IVCF (Inter-Varsity Christian Fellowship) at UW-La Crosse. We met at a party, and she was having a rough time about something I don't even remember now. We sat and talked for about three hours.  That must have been near the end of the semester and when she was moving back to the East coast. I went to visit her in MA for the best 4th of July weekend I have ever had. We hung out with some friends of hers that weekend. I can only imagine that those friends miss her deeply. I think of Jessica often, and my thoughts quickly turn to her parents. She loved her parents, and she was the apple of their eye. She was all they wanted in a daughter, and more. Her mom knew that someday Jessica would leave this world early. It must have been a hard burden to carry. It is a reminder that our children are only lent to us from God, and then we must give them back. How can God expect this of us when he gives us a heart so full of love for them? Jessica was a true Christian, and I can only imagine that she was hugging the person sitting next to her to carry them right to the gates of heaven. Our lives here are so short, and our eternal lives are forever. We will see you again, Jessica. I can't wait for that day!

I did not know Jessica but I found her name on a website dedicated to the victims of 9/11. The reason I have chosen to leave this message is that I wanted to honor somebody that was my age and gender - I also was 22 when the tragedy happened. I send my love from the UK to her family in the USA.

I met Jessica when I was a little girl. The one thing I remember most about Jessica was how steady she was in her beliefs. We went to the same high school and the same church for a while. I liked her instantly because she had the same name as I did, but we used to get in trouble during Sunday school when we would fight over what a verse "really" meant. She was wholehearted. I am indebted to her for showing me how to be a beautiful, stubborn, strong-willed person. I think of her (and her family) often.

Today is 30 July 2008. I found Jessica's name written on the back of a public transit bus seat, with "Forever Flight 11" underneath, on my morning commute to work today from Cherry Hill, NJ to Philadelphia, PA. I was so stunned by it that I took a picture of the message on my cell phone so that I would remember it. I found this site on the Internet during my lunch hour today when I performed a search on Google for the Flight 11 manifest and stumbled upon Jessica's name on the list. My heart is still with the surviving families of all of the 9/11 victims. As I was reading the posts on this site, I realized Jessica was a Christian. Be comforted, then, that today she rests with her Savior in Glory, but is also remembered as far away as Cherry Hill, NJ, 7 years later.

Jessica was an intern in my office the summer of 2001. The thing I remember most is that she was always so happy and willing to help everyone. One day, I casually mentioned that I didn't know much about programming databases--the next day I found a rather large book on my desk. It was "The Complete Guide to Programming Databases" (or something like that) with a note that said "Good Luck" from Jessica. She was that kind of person.

Even though none of us knew it at the time, I eventually discovered that the flight path of AA11 took Jessica right over our heads that morning. I don't know what significance that holds, but it is a thought that stays with me. In my dreams, I would turn back the clock to that day, run outside and see the plane overhead and shout "STOP!"--as if Jessica could hear me and that would make everything okay. Maybe that's my brain's way of coping with the feelings of helplessness.

Even though I only knew her for one short summer, I think about Jessica often.

I met Jessica in September of 1998 when we were attending the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. She was a very sweet and modest person. However, her flesh may be gone, but her spirit is still alive.

Well, it is 6 years later, and I seem to think of Jessica a lot, even though we were not real good friends. We talked on occasion in High School (Rochester, MN) when we were in flag together for the band. I always will remember her smile, even after graduation, if I was going through my yearbooks, I would think of her and that big smile. She has a heart of gold.

I hope your family has found some peace in this, even though she was taken to young. She will always be with you.

Until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hands.

I am writing this little memo as a classmate of Jessica's from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. I'm not even sure if Jessica knew my name--I'm sure she knew my face back then--but we were in some of the same classes back in 1999 or 2000. Her name just popped into my mind, and I entered her name into Google.com, and I came across this website. I just wanted to let you, her parents, know that she was a great girl. She was very outgoing, talked to everyone, and always had a smile on her face. Again, I didn't know her that well, but when I heard about this, I just stood in complete shock with my mouth wide open. I am from NY and was right there when this whole thing happened. I heard of Jessica a little while after the attack, and I literally could not believe my eyes. Jessica was a great classmate, always there to help. I just wanted to write this to let you know that people are thinking of her, still to this day, even if you don't know them. Like I mentioned earlier, I'm not even sure if Jessica knew me, but my thoughts and prayers are with her and you and your family.

Jessica was an amazing person. I met her through church and she was always smiling and willing to talk. From the many talks i had with her on sunday nights at youth group she was always intrested in what i was doing, and if i needed any help she would try to help the best she could. She encouraged me a lot too, always telling me to strive and do well in school.
When i ever heard that she was aboard one of those planes my heart fell. She was such an amazing person, so strong, and loving. she is missed by all, my thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends.
