September 12, 1997 – Calgary, Alberta
September 10, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

Jessica, beloved daughter of JP and Jill, sister of Jacob, passed away suddenly on Monday, September 10, 2018 at the age of 20 years.

Our dearest Jessica, you were born under a beautiful rainbow at the Foothills Hospital, in Calgary, where you were welcomed by your adoring grandparents, Jerome and Lorraine Berger, Genny Glatt, and Joe and Mary Jo Glatt and embraced by your aunts and uncles Mark and Renata Berger, Paul and Danielle Berger, Oscar Izquierdo, Jose and Marta Aragon, and Javier and Lysa Glatt. As our first child, and our family’s first grandchild, and niece we were filled with awe and joy as we witnessed your enthusiastic, inquisitive nature and quest for learning as you grew.

As a toddler you excitedly anticipated the arrival of your dearest brother, Jacob. He loved that you cheered him on in all of his endeavours. He looked up to you as a role model. Jacob could always feel your love whenever you were with him and cherished each and every moment. Your relationship was one of mutual respect, admiration, and unconditional love.

As our families grew, you were deeply admired and cherished by your cousins Michael Berger, Arianna Berger, Anileah Berger, Madison Berger, Havana Izquierdo, Jordi Izquierdo, Shaela Jalava, Aziza Glatt, Camila Glatt, Oscar Glatt, Felix Aragon and Sophia Aragon.

Your kind, honest, genuine, and gentle nature defined you. You always welcomed others with an open heart and acceptance. Your vibrant, passionate, spirited character was a reflection of your beautiful soul. You approached life with zest and ambition, all the while being modest, humble, and considerate of others. You inspired us to be the best that we could be.

You were such an accomplished young lady from a very early age. Whether it was soccer, piano, singing, dancing, reading, or school sports, you strove for and achieved excellence. We were continually amazed by you as you consistently achieved the highest levels of academic success with your dedication to your studies. As you embarked on your journey at the University of Calgary in the Honours Neuroscience program to reach your dream of being a physician, you participated in an astonishing number of extracurricular positions and volunteer roles.

You were highly esteemed and regarded in your roles at the Mental Health Awareness Club, Outrun the Stigma Committee, Synapse: YYC Neuroscience Symposium, New Student Registration Assistant, Science Ambassador at the U of C, Brain Waves Club, Run for the Little Ones Non-Profit, Science Mentorship Program, U Flourish Program, Association for the Rehabilitation of Brain Injured, Undergraduate journal club, PEMRAP Research Assistant at the Children’s Hospital, Kids Cancer Care Volunteer Tutoring Team, and several other smaller volunteer roles. It is with overwhelming pride that we acknowledge your contributions to helping others, particularly in the area of mental health.

Your achievements were also officially recognized in the form of scholarships: The Atlantis Fellowship Scholarship, BSc Neuroscience Summer Research Scholarship, SUPER Work Scholarship, Jason Lang Scholarship, Undergraduate Merit Award, Faculty of Science Dean’s List, Alexander Rutherford Scholarship, First Year Scholars Member, President Admissions Scholarship and the St. Francis High School Honours Society.

During this very difficult time, we have felt comfort in hearing what a beautiful friend you were and how you touched each person in a deeply profound way. You are painfully missed and will always be lovingly remembered.
Jessica, you were our light, our joy, our gold and our rainbow.
With our deepest gratitude, thank you for sharing your beautiful spirit with us.
With love,
Mom, Dad, Jacob and Milo Pupper

“It takes sunshine and rain to make a rainbow. There would be no rainbows without sunshine and rain.” R.Bennett

I met Jessica in grade 9, we played on the same soccer team that year. Jessica and I became very good friends through out that year and I learned a lot about her. I learned that Jessica was one of the most kind, loving, beautiful, hilarious and brilliant
people I have ever met. When we went on to high school, she pushed me to try out for the volleyball team with her. Being on that team with such amazing girls was one of the best years of my life. She exemplified what hard work and dedication looked like, whether it was on the court, on the field, or in our classrooms.
My deepest condolences to the entire Izquierdo family. May you all find peace and remember the love and happiness Jessica brought to so many. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Condolence from Spencer Mahura on September 14th, 2018 1:39 PM

To the Izquiredo Family

The news about Jessica breaks my heart. I was totally in love with her as she was my first real girlfriend. It all started when you guys came out to Radium for the weekend when I initially started talking to Jessica and fell in love with her bright and silly personality. Our friendship started on the ski hill in Panorama where Jessica would wait for me as I continued to fall down the hill every ten feet. It was at that moment that I realized how charismatic Jessica truly was. Once we started dating I began to realize many other things about Jessica. She was always the hardest working person in the room and had the ability to make anybody smile. We could sit on the couch playing a game and would be laughing with one another the entire time. Our favourite dates were going to Safeway for chinese food or stopping at the husky store to by 5cent candies. Jessica was a very beautiful girl and I will cherish the memories I had with her for the rest of my life. She will always hold a special place in my heart.
My thoughts and prayers are to your entire family in this very difficult time.

Condolence from Karin Boldt on September 14th, 2018 1:48 PM

JP, Jill and Jacob. Words cannot clearly express our sadness and utter grief at your loss. Jess was a beautiful person inside and out, and we are all better of to have known her and have her be a part of our lives. We hope and pray that her passing will not have been in vain as we learn to accept and deal with issues that are throughout our society, but remain hidden or uncomfortable to some. If there is anything that we can do or anyway that we can help, please let us know.
Brad, Nada, Beth and Zach Vinnell

Condolence from Sprinkhuysen Family on September 14th, 2018 2:20 PM

Jessica was so special to so many people – her big smile and shining eyes – that is how we remember Jessica.

Even though she left us so soon, she accomplished so many great things and touched everyone of us. We will always remember Jessica.

JP, Jill, Jacob, and the rest of the Izqueirdo family, I am so deeply moved by all of the efforts you have put in to continue Jessica’s legacy in advocating for mental health awareness. I am sending you all of my thoughts, prayers, and hugs. Stay strong during this difficult time.
Jessica and I met when we were very young and I am so proud to call her one of the first friends I ever had. I remember eating chicken fingers for lunch and playing games until one of us had to go home. As we grew up and went to different schools, we drifted apart. But, one of the most amazing things about Jessica and about our friendship was that no matter how long it had been, we always picked up right where we left off. I remember playing volleyball against her team and watching St. Francis football games with her and sitting with each other in sports medicine class. Jessica always made an effort to be kind and she always put other people before herself. I’m so saddened by this tragic event but I am also incredibly grateful to have had Jessica in my life, no matter how close we were. Jessica was a rarity in this world and she will be missed.

Condolence from Dana Charlton on September 14th, 2018 4:10 PM

Jill, JP and Jacob,
There isn’t a wonderful memory I have from Honor’s elementary and junior high days without Jessica in it. She was a so clearly a born leader even then and set an example for the other kids as a tireless volunteer. We both benefitted from knowing her. I’m not surprised about her accomplishments and her later work to help others, because that’s who she always was. We should all continue her work in advocating for mental health awareness and ending the stigma.

Condolence from John and Hazel Tulick on September 14th, 2018 5:00 PM

Dear JP, Jill and Jacob,
We join with so many others who knew Jessica, in offering our deepest sympathy on her passing….the measure of life is through the lives she had touched and the sorrow she leaves behind..If the outpouring of sympathy on Jessica’s loss is any indication…..You can proudly and confidently say that her’ indeed was a life we are going to miss….May you find peace and comfort in knowing that this loss is felt by all who knew and loved her……….Sincerely ……The Tulick Family

Condolence from Alisia Chen on September 15th, 2018 2:32 PM

Jill, JP, Jacob, and Family,

I was devastated to hear this news. Jessica was three years older than me, but we were in the same BSc Neuroscience Program at the University of Calgary. Our program is so small and tight-knit as a group that this is a devastating loss to all of us. Jessica was one of the first people I ever spoke to on campus, and we were involved in the Mental Health Awareness Club together. I still remember when I first joined as a junior member, being completely in awe at how confident, charismatic, and of course, beautiful, she was. She was an amazing President, and truly an all-around amazing person. To be honest, I am still in disbelief that I am even writing this condolence, it just feels so unreal. We spoke just last weekend. I am sending my sincerest condolences and sympathies. My thoughts are with you in these coming days.

Rest in peace Jessica. You will forever be remembered.

Dear JP, Jill, Jacob and the Izquierdo and Berger families,
Jessica was a shining light. I knew Jessica as a confident yet shy grade 6 student with so much life. She was the star of the school produced opera “Fed Ex”, was involved in school student leadership and was very highly regarded by fellow students and the staff members of Monsignor E.L. Doyle. A natural leader who lead by example.

Please know that our family prays with your family.

Condolence from Darth Hundal on September 17th, 2018 11:25 PM

To the Izquierido family,

I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful daughter/sister. I remember, I first met her in summer school heading into grade 11, she had a bright and sweet personality and was one of the most genuine and sincere individuals I have ever crossed paths with and had the pleasure of knowing. I am truly blessed that we met each other at that point, as we became great friends going forward. When I transferred from Calgary to UBC, she was the very first in wishing me luck with my new endeavours. You guys truly raised an amazing young woman, that was loved by many others including myself. She will always be in my prayers and I’ll dedicate each and everyday to her and you guys. Heaven gained a new angel and may she live in paradise forever.

Love,
Darth Hundal

Condolence from Dana Wasylycia on September 18th, 2018 4:25 PM

I met Jess in November of 2017 at Foothills Hospital and throughout the time we spent together she became a light that guided me through the darkness. I read what was written about Jess and I cannot believe that this is the same person I knew…for Jess never mentioned anything about her accomplishments or background. But I knew her struggles and she knew mine. We cried together, we laughed together, we felt each others pain-I never felt alone because of Jess. To Jill, JP, and Jacob-Please know that Jess was loved and cared for at this time. I wanted to be better for her, to be able to help and guide her just as she unknowingly did for me. I can honestly say that I wouldn’t be here if it were not for her and for this reason I feel like I have failed. Jess changed my life for in our conversations I found purpose and a passion to advocate for Mental Health. I promise you I will do everything I can to work on addressing Mental Health in Canada and I will do so in Jess’ honor. I know this is what she would want for the only time I ever saw Jess get angry was when I wanted to give in and quit. I will never give in and I will never quit because of Jess.

Condolence from John Doyle on September 18th, 2018 4:30 PM

I’ve known Jessica since grade 7. She had always been one of the most brilliant, insightful, wittiest and kindest people I’ve known. I’m extremely grateful for the memories she left with me, and many other people throughout the years. Although her and I lost contact as the years went on, her presence in my life will never be forgotten. I hope you find strength at this time to get through each day, and find some peace knowing her life was honoured by such a beautiful ceremony.

Condolence from Emily on September 18th, 2018 10:37 PM

I did not know Jessica personally. However, in classes over the last few days, Psychology and Neuroscience professors and faculty at the U of C have been sharing just how great of a person and student Jessica was. They have united many of us by sharing their humility and compassion during this hard time. Jessica’s presence is felt all across the U of C campus and she has been on many people’s minds. I wish comfort and peace for all who knew her, and for her to rest in eternal peace.

Condolence from BSc Neuroscience Class of 2019 on September 19th, 2018 11:40 PM

Jess was one of the most kind, caring, and genuinely compassionate individuals that I have ever met and above all was an amazing classmate and friend. I’ll never forget the ways she motivated me, taught me to be kind to myself, and to feel like I was enough, even when she couldn’t do the same for herself. She was one of the strongest individuals that I have ever met and the battle she fought will be one that will continue to inspire me for the rest of my life.
Jess brought so much light to every room she was in and always made the prospect of staying up late studying so much more manageable and a lot of fun. The halls and the study rooms feel a little dimmer and emptier in Jess’ absence. Even so, I can still feel her with me, cheering me on and continuing to motivate me to learn and teaching me to be kind to everyone around me.
On behalf of everyone in the 2019 neuro class, we thank you for bringing Jess into our lives and celebrating her incredible life in such a heartfelt way. We will never forget our amazing classmate and friend.

Love always,
Maya Sohn and the entire 2019 neuro class
