Latham — Jes­sica Veron­ica Juron, 30, of Latham, un­ex­pect­edly en­tered into eter­nal life on Mon­day, De­cem­ber 31, 2018 at Al­bany Memo­rial Hos­pi­tal.

Born in Al­bany, NY, on Jan. 23, 1988, she was the daugh­ter of Chris­tine A. (O’Mal­ley) Juron of Mary­land and her fa­ther, the late Dou­glas and Kath­leen (step mom) Juron, of Vir­ginia.

Sur­vivors in ad­di­tion to her mother in­clude her brother, Michael D. (Leah) Juron; and her four adored neph­ews of Mary­land. Jes­sica was pre­de­ceased by her brother, Lt. Ni­co­las J. Juron.

Jes­sica grad­u­ated from Tow­son Uni­ver­sity in Bal­ti­more, MD; earned her M.A. De­gree from New York Uni­ver­sity in So­cial Work and was a re­spected em­ployee for The Chil­dren’s Aide So­ci­ety in New York City for many years be­fore re­lo­cat­ing to Up­state NY.

Jes­sica found her pas­sion as an ad­vo­cate for chil­dren and fam­i­lies in strength­en­ing fam­ily bonds. She was a cru­sader in help­ing fam­i­lies nav­i­gate the com­plex­i­ties in the adop­tion process. Ac­cord­ing to her fam­ily, friends and co-work­ers, Jes­sica’s love of chil­dren ex­tended be­yond the bound­aries. She took great pride in find­ing ways to help chil­dren un­der­stand love in dif­fi­cult sit­u­a­tions through arts and crafts, and giv­ing of her time any way she could.

Once Jes­sica re­turned to up­state NY she en­joyed and loved ex­plor­ing all that the Adiron­dacks had to of­fer with her best friend Ryan and his chil­dren. “A fam­ily doesn’t need to be per­fect; it just needs to be united” would be Jes­sica’s motto for life.

To con­tinue her vi­sion, Jes­sica’s fam­ily re­quests any do­na­tions in mem­ory of Jes­sica, be made to St. Jude’s Re­search Hos­pi­tal or Big Brothers Big Sis­ters of New York City.

Fu­neral Ser­vices will be pri­vate at the con­ve­nience of the fam­ily from the Dufresne & Ca­vanaugh Fu­neral Home in Latham.
