On November 2, 1996, our precious angel returned to heaven after a long and valiant battle with osteogenic sarcoma.
Jessica was born February 16, 1986. She was an outgoing, artistic, gentle girl. She loved to draw, dance, sing, play with her sisters and friends, and tell jokes. Jessica was a source of joy and inspiration to everyone.She is survived and greatly missed by her parents, Michael B. and Sally Palmer Zunkowski; her two little sisters, Samantha and Rachel; grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Zunkowski; great-grandmother, Frida Zunkowski; aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends.
The family wants to thank the Make-A-Wish Foundation for granting her wish and giving Jessica a wonderful vacation and for giving her family a precious memory. We would give a special thanks to her teachers and classmates at Peruvian Park Elementary School who showed Jessica so much love and lifted her spirits when she was feeling so bad. Thanks also to our friends, neighbors and relatives who have been such a great comfort and support during this time.
