Jessica reminded all of us how important life is; through her work and the way she lived, but also during her battle against the disease that eventually took her life. Jessica was fighting an unfair battle; non-small cell lung cancer is a disease that does not get the recognition, advocacy or money that is needed to find effective treatments. She pointed out to many of us the need to advocate to stop this disease. The Addario Lung Cancer Medical Institute is one of the few organizations investing find a cure for the type of lung cancer that affected Jessica. They are working to fight lung cancer in young, non-smoking adults; people like Jessica. Jessica's family, friends and co-workers have set up this tribute fund to help continue Jessica's battle against lung cancer. Please donate and continue the fight.
I didn't know Jessica, but I recently lost my Mom, Elizabeth Maren Ylvisaker, to lung cancer at a tragically young age as well. I hope that our efforts to help end this terrible disease will be an honor to both Jessica and Beth's memories.
With love and respect,
To continue the fight and stop others from suffering from this disease.

Thinking of you every day. Giving so that your legacy may be saving others, something you cared so deeply about and gave so much of yourself to do. <3 you Jess.
Not even over 20 years can fade the memories of Jess's kindness and beautiful smile. You made RH Class of 1994 proud! #gonetoosoon
