Dance Partner, Travel Buddy & Fellow Foodie

Name: Rochelle Ballard

Location: New York, New York

Relationship to Jessica: Friend, dance partner, travel buddy and fellow foodie 🙂

We met at Georgetown, but our friendship blossomed after moving to New York. Almost 5 years of brunch dates, dinner dates, dancing the night away, concerts, Valentine’s/Birthday celebrations, Hamptons summers, Halloween costume swaps, and a vacation to Greece that I will never forget. My most vivid memories with Jess involve fun, laughter and living life to the fullest.

Jess, your passing has truly left an irreplaceable void. This will be the first of many memories I hope to share with your family and friends in honor of the vibrant life you lived.

This picture, taken on our trip to Greece in July 2009, reminds me of the warm, kind and loving angel you were while here on Earth and the angel you continue to be….

I have faith that the peaceful tranquility that radiated from you in this picture, is now yours forever. Though you are gone, the spirit of our friendship will always be with me.

Happy Birthday, Jess. Another Valentine’s Day made special because of you 🙂

Love Always,
Ro
