Jessica Allison Jackman went hand-in-hand with her mom on June 20th
2013 while on vacation with family at Lake Powell. In her words, "It truly is Heaven on earth". She made a lasting positive impression on anyone she met. Although her body was limited physically, she
was a spiritual giant who was an example in overcoming adversity and obstacles with an unconquerable positive attitude. Now free from her physical limitation, she can finally skip, dance, and jump
for joy while she awaits her perfect body. She never let her handicaps define who she was or get in the way of accomplishing her goals. She was an amazing example of staying focused on the important
things in life. She left an unforgettable impression on all who knew her, or knew her story. Despite her dependence on others Jess was constantly in the service of others. From cheering
up family and friends with her contagious laugh, to going on a service mission for the LDS church. She uplifted all that she came in contact with. One of the most impactful characteristics she
possessed was her unwavering faith and testimony of Jesus Christ. She is a living testament of Christ’s love for all of us.
Although being a spiritual giant, she was constrained by a small physical
stature. As a result she gravitated towards babies. She loved the fact that they were small enough for her to hold in her arms. Despite never having children of her own, she unofficially
adopted her nieces and nephews loving them as her own. She would go as far as to pay for her nieces and nephews to fly in and visit for the holidays. Her life was truly incomplete without
her relationships to the children in her life. Anyone one that knows her is sure that she is smiling down knowing that she is still helping others through the efforts of the Rae of Light Foundation,
especially children in need.
