Jessica touched many youth and adults with her kindness, caring, and fairness in 4H and by being a great person during her 16 years of life.
She helped many youth to see the value and good of being involved in 4H.
She was a true example of what 4H is about and why learning by doing develops skill and character.
Jessica’s ability to provide leadership, share a caring attitude, and assist others to learn and do was practiced continuously in 4H. She cared deeply about people around her, doing the right thing at the right time, sharing a great smile, and being a positive role model. She impacted her local club and 4H members in Ringgold County with her can-do spirit even when she was extremely ill. Jessica was an excellent example of practicing citizenship in all that she did in her club and on the county level. Jessica’s last 4H activity was leading a fleece blanket workshop in her club so hospitalized children would take a blanket with them when they were well enough to go home. Jessica touched many people with her kindness, caring, fairness, and by being a great person.
