Jessica is truly a hero. Jessica was babysitting a three year old little girl one afternoon when the little girl went running towards the garage for toys. Unbeknownst to anyone in the house, the family’s dog was behind the door. When the door opened, the dog attacked the little girl, almost mauling her. Due to Jessica's quick thinking and action, she was able to subdue the dog back into the garage and begin first aid techniques until the little girl could be taken to the emergency room. Unfortunately, the little girl did have to have her ear re-attached but fortunately is healing well.
Jessica is also active in her youth group and has volunteered on several occasions to take care of small children at her church. The small children are known to love her and naturally gravitate towards her natural care and kindness towards them. In fact, the daughters of the person who nominated Jessica, call her "Super Hero Jessy". Congratulations Jessica for all that you have accomplished.
