She was born in Brazil Dec. 13, 1975, as the second daughter of Jack and Janice Archer Stultz.
After attending school in Brazil for many years, Jessica graduated in 1994 from Edison High School in Lake Station, Ind.
She was preceded in death by an infant son, Patrick Garren, her father Jack, maternal grandparents Francis Posavac and Arthur Archer, paternal grandfather Carl H. Stultz, and infant brother David Stultz.
She is survived by her mothers, Janice and George (Eddie) Shelton, N. Ft. Myers, Fla., and Barbara Radcliff, Oak Ridge, Tenn., daughters Terri Leigh and Randi Jo Garren, Stevenson, Ala., and Jesyka Sue Burns, N. Ft. Myers, Fla., sisters Mildred Campbell, Oak Ridge, Tenn., Jennifer Stultz, Poland, Barbara Werner, Jean Hunt, and Thelma Stultz, all of Indianapolis, brother Kenny Shelton, Portage, Ind., biological brothers David Jones, MS, and Jack Means, Terre Haute, paternal grandmother Mildred Stultz, Brazil, and a large extended family of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
Our sweet, beautiful Jessica was a loving and caring daughter, sister, aunt, friend and especially mother. To little Jesyka, it will be OK for "mommies on the wind."
At Jessica's request, cremation was chosen. A memorial service took place Jan. 26, 2010, in N. Ft. Myers, Fla.
