I met Jessica in rehab. We were both fighting terribly hard to get our lives and our sanity back. She always told me I was her mentor and inspiration, but she was also my inspiration. I had never met someone so sensitive to the feelings and well being of others. I often thought that maybe her sensitivity was in fact the root of her addiction. Jessica felt so deeply and most of the time didn't know what to do with those strong feelings. She was the last person I hugged when I left for the halfway house I was assigned to. I got home March 22, 2019 and spoke with Jess, for what would be the last time, on March 27th. She was in such good spirits and seemed to have a clarity about where she was in her recovery. I told her I loved her and couldn't be prouder of her. Then life started happening for both of us and on April 20th I got a message that she had overdosed on heroin and was gone from this world to a better, heavenly one. I was absolutely shocked and devastated. My heart broke into a trillion pieces for her family and for this world. We truly lost an angel on earth that day.
