It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Jessica Minella Joanis, who departed from this world on February 29, 2024 at the age of 32. Jessica was born on Sunday, March 10, 1991, to her loving parents Ronald and Minerva Joanis.

Jessica's journey through life was marked by resilience and strength. Despite battling with Autoimmune Hepatitis since childhood, a condition where her immune system relentlessly attacked her liver, Jessica faced each day with courage and grace. Sadly, due to complicated factors, she was unable to undergo the liver transplant that could have prolonged her life.

Throughout her life, Jessica touched the hearts of those around her with her kindness, creativity, and selflessness. She was a devoted daughter, sister, friend, and above all, a loving mother to her two cherished sons, Jace Malachi Joanis and Jaxon Mathias Joanis. Her dedication to her children was unwavering, ensuring they were always well-cared-for, experiencing new adventures, and excelling in their studies.

Jessica possessed a remarkable talent for event planning and decorating, infusing every celebration with her unique creativity and attention to detail. Despite her illness, she continued to bake specialty cakes, craft party favors, and meticulously plan decorations for numerous gatherings, always placing the happiness of others above her own.

She was a beacon of positivity, often concealing her pain behind a radiant smile to shield her loved ones from worry. Her love for dance and her passion for all things Disney brought joy to those around her, and her laughter was infectious.

Jessica leaves behind a legacy of strength, love, and perseverance that will forever inspire those who had the privilege of knowing her.
