There's a natural (and probably good) tendency to idealize those who have passed away, but even while she was on her mission and at BYU afterwards everyone always said she was pretty much the sweetest girl in the world. She also had a lovely goofy sense of humor; you know, the kind of person whose facebook profile includes this in the "About Me" section: "I think that toilet paper is overpriced." Or who learned--phonetically--how to say "Your mother dresses you in funny clothes" in Estonian to (jokingly) tell girls in Estonia who wore ridiculously skimpy clothes even when it was freezing outside. Though she also loved to be edgy, embracing a hint of a punk style and singing "Satan is My Motor" in her angelic voice while we did a missionary service project (literally) picking up rocks in the Tallinn Zoo.
She was pretty awesome. She is missed and loved by many. Rest in peace, Jess.
