Jessica Anne Warnick came into this world on January 9, 1999. She came with a special set of skills: joke telling skills, singing skills, sassy skills, prank pulling skills, prayer skills and the gift of knowing and loving her Heavenly Father.
She was a happy go lucky child and was preparing for the battles that were coming. She had help from her siblings, Chris, Jake, Jenna, Jeremy and Jason. Then the monster, Neurofibromatosis, reared it's ugly head, she was ready.
She fought through chemotherapies, multiple brain surgeries and radiation. She told jokes all along the way and made herself, her nurses and doctors and everyone around her laugh. Her testimony of Heavenly Father became stronger and brighter and she would share it every time she could.
After radiation, there was peace for several years. During that time, Jessica enjoyed her days at high school. She went to Prom and Morp. She performed in the special needs talent show. She sang in a girls choir and danced with her Ballroom dance class in a recital. She went repelling, raced in a stake Ragnar race and loved riding in a beach wheelchair. She attended girls camp. She was able to go to hear her favorite singers live in concert, David Archuleta, One Direction, Michael Buble and The Jonas Brothers. She took out her own endowments at the Mt Timpanogos Temple
Then the monster returned and this time she started having seizures and then a new tumor that grew more quickly than anyone expected. She had all her skills ready, but the monster was too quick and fast and her brain couldn't handle the damage.
We kissed our sweet, kind, funny, happy and positive Jessica goodbye on September 12th.
She will be loved and missed by all who knew her. We are so grateful that she was a part of our family and our lives.
We can't wait to see you again Jessica, healthy, happy and strong!
