Salisbury – Jessica was born D…

Salisbury – Jessica was born December 23, 1995, to Courtney De Almeida of Salisbury and the late Brian Brown of Amesbury who passed away in 2016.
Jessica gained her angel wings peacefully at home Friday, March 30, surrounded by her loving family and many compassionate loving friends from Boston after a lengthy illness. In 1999 Jessica was in a car accident where she received a spinal cord injury. Despite her disabilities, Jessica attended school in Newburyport and graduated from Newburyport High School in 2014. She also attended an after-graduate program at Triton until 2017. Jessica was always full of life and loved everyone, especially her Mammy, and always saw the best in everyone. Jessica loved Newburyport, going to the boardwalk, waterfront concerts and the Yankee homecoming parade. Jess loved NASCAR and attended many races at NHMS to see her favorite driver Tony Stewart, whom she met in victory lane after his win at NHMS in 2011, the Jonas Brothers, whom she met and saw in concert three times, and even won a trip online to see them in California. She loved listening to Josh Groban and got to see him in concert last summer. Jessica always loved to visit new places, the zoo, aquarium. She also loved all her staff on 11 South ICU at Children’s Hospital Boston who became like a second family to her since her accident, and always gave her very special care. She was known as their VIP; the boss.
Jessica has left behind her devastated family who will miss her forever and would like to thank all the people in her life who were always there for her.
