Our Little Angel

Jessica Iris Motzkus was born to Jennifer Jenkins Motzkus and Roger Motzkus on September 12, 2002 in Pasadena, CA. She was taken from earth on June 12, 2004 in West Valley City, UT. Her 21 months of life touched all who knew and met her. She was petite, charming, and her smile was ever present- creating joy everywhere! At four months she made it through heart surgery and taught us to treasure every moment of life.

An extraordinary bond sparked the moment her mom heard the words, "It's a girl!" It deepened through the hours of holding, rocking, singing, reading, dancing, and playing.

Jessica had an incredible love for her dad who learned to be "Mr. Mom"- they did everything together! He lived for her hugs. She was the sparkle in his eye.

She was a light to her two older brothers, Conner and Justin. They were her protectors, playmates, and her biggest fans, "We love her soooo much!"

She will be dearly missed by her cousins, aunts, uncles, grandparents, and those special adults who adopted her as their own.

The only way to take the sorrow out of death is to take the love out of life. And for our little one, love was ubiquitous!

Her wonderful grandparents are Calvin and Judy Jenkins and Glenn and Darla Motzkus.

Come share love with the family on Friday night, June 18, 2004, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at the Hunter 2nd ward, 3970 South 5200 West.
