She was a 2009 graduate of Norman North High School where she was very active in
school activities on and off campus. Jessika was the schools social butterfly. She would always strive to do her best and to please everyone. Jessika served her community by ringing the bell for Salvation Army. Shopping for bags and purses was her forte, you could say she was a bit of a hoarder.
Jessika was quite the competitor when it came to racing her chair in the Oklahoma
Special Olympics. She won numerous Gold and Silver medals and also rolled a mean strike in bowling. During her 20-year competition she never meet a stranger nor left you without a smile. Jessika was an avid Oklahoma Sooner Football fan. Every game day you could bet on her wearing her crimson and white clothing.
