Family Letter, October 2014
As we approach our nation’s Holiday season, this will be the 9th
year whereby Jennifer will not be with us in person however she is
always with us in our hearts and souls. Since Jennifer was an
adult when she was Taken, the Holidays were getting even more
precious because Jennifer was out on her own for years and we
cherished every time we got to see her and spend time with her.
She had a very full and busy life going when she went Missing. She
was always growing personally and looking forward to her next
adventure in life with her friends, co-workers or us her family.
It is the time of year that month after month from now until next
February the void of not having Jennifer in our day to day lives
is most felt. Halloween, one of our family’s favorite occasions
was always a blast. Dressing up, having parties, getting together
with all we knew to have fun. Followed by Thanksgiving when we
always got to see Jennifer for a few days. Then Christmas and New
Years which were always a very happy time of the year for her and
our family. There seems to be a huge whole in these Holidays now.
We still seem to get a little pleasure out of them and the time we
do get to spend with Logan and Katie, they too have very busy
lives now and time together is always great, as well as with our
family and friends too. Then January will come around and the pain
of missing Jennifer is always off the charts but the month of
January is toughest of all for obvious reasons.
Sometimes we sit back thinking, with all the Missing people being
found this past year and how the issue of Human Trafficking is
finally getting some attention in our country, maybe just maybe
the stars in our Universe are lining up to finally let Jennifer be
found or something to let her case move forward. We think
sometimes that it has to be Jennifer’s turn next(quite
selfishly), but it just has not evolved that way thus far. One
thing we do know is is that when one ounce of a real lead comes
into law enforcement, it could end Jennifer’s personal Hell in a
flash. It will only take one brave and strong person to make the
call that helps us find our daughter. It is so hard to understand
at times why no one will speak up about what happened to Jennifer.
We know people know what happened and to have silence from those
who truly have knowledge just blows our minds. You see we cannot
comprehend why after such a long time if one was to have first
hand knowledge about Jennifer for the good or bad, why they would
not let that information be known? It’s puzzling to us because
our minds don’t think that way. If we had any knowledge to help
any victim, it would be reported. It has to be, we cannot go on in
our country and world looking the other way, why? Because some day
almost everyone is going to be in a situation of needing serious
help for one thing or another and to sit back knowing you can help
and not? That concept is not within us either.
It’s not too late to help Jennifer. Yes coming up on 9 years
Missing is a long time however to us her family and friends, it
was just yesterday. It never leaves you; it always is in your
mind. It affects and affects everything we do moment to moment. We
know we will never be the same people, Jennifer too and we accept
that. We know someone has done something very bad to our daughter.
We can’t change that, we accept that too but we NEED to bring
Jennifer home so she may finally have peace.
Who will Step up? Who will call Crimeline @1-800-423-8477, no
names, no ID just info and reward money still available, or call
Orlando Police Detectives directly at 1-407-246-3982, Detectives
Sprague and Hatcher will take your call with fruitful information.
Additionally if you are afraid to speak up yet know you MUST,
contact a lawyer, the law has ways of protecting your identity or
your clergy, they too can help you stay anonymous. Don’t do this
for us her family or her friends. Make the call solely for
Jennifer, the act of Abduction happened to her, not us. We can’t
begin to feel the shear Horror she must have felt at the time of
her Abduction. Put yourself in her shoes if you can, we can’t
come close to feeling what she must have, no way. If you think the
act of Abduction is not Terrorism you are greatly mistaken. Be the
Difference and make the call.
We would also like to thank the Orlando Police department for
never giving up on Jennifer. Her case is worked still on a VERY
regular basis because there are always things to follow up on and
yes we still get leads on a regular basis to this day and they are
all followed up on. As we have stated so many time, it is you Mr.
& Mrs. John Q Public that have the power to end Jennifer’s
case. You, the public, have proven time after time that your eyes
and ears are always open and when you see a wrong it must be
reported. Realize the power you the public has and use that power.
Finally to all those who visit this site and have followed
Jennifer’s case from the beginning or just yesterday, we thank
you for always thinking, always being aware and always offering us
your support, thoughts and possibilities. We are humbled by your
continued work and effort in trying to find Jennifer with us. Some
day it will pay off.
Search For Jennifer Kesse –
has been 7+ years since Jennifer’s Abduction, we understand that
many visitors to this website are looking for more information
about what happened to our daughter, Jennifer, from the beginning.
We are very grateful to the local and national media for all the
coverage that has been provided for Jennifer and to our search
efforts - they have done a tremendous job. We cannot say enough
about the support of residents in the Orlando/ Central Florida
area and the volunteers who have come from all parts of our state
and country, including tourists visiting the area who have donated
their time to assist with our search efforts and continue to help
us keep awareness for Jennifer high. Jennifer needs to come home
and for no ones sake more than her own. The heinous crime of
Abduction is something no one should ever experience.
As means of re-capping Jennifer’s abduction - Jennifer, was
reported missing when she failed to show up for work at Central
Florida Investments, on the morning of Tuesday January 24th, 2006
in Orlando Fl. after a long weekend in St. Croix with her
boyfriend and other friends (they Flew both ways, there was no
cruise as some people think). For those of us close to Jennifer,
we knew something was wrong immediately. If she was going to be
late for work or a meeting she would call. In fact Jennifer had
good routines she and her boyfriend (who lives hours away in south
Florida and Jennifer in Orlando) called each other everyday while
driving to work in the morning and would speak with each other
every night before going to bed, having a long distance
relationship, seeing each other on weekends and Holidays. On
Monday, the morning of 1/23/06, Jennifer left her boyfriends home
in south Florida and drove directly to work in Ocoee Fl, not going
home first but directly to her work as she usually did when she
stayed the weekend in south Florida. On the night of Monday
January 23rd, Jennifer left work at approx 6pm, walking out of the
building, where she worked with her boss and wishing each other a
good evening and will meet again in the morning. That evening,
Jennifer talked to her Father, Mother, Brother and later with some
friends and her boyfriend by phone as usual and that was the last
anyone has seen or heard from Jennifer – Telephone call to her
boyfriend at 9:57 pm 1/23/06 – Monday night.
Jennifer and her boyfriend did not talk the morning of Tuesday,
January 24th. Her boyfriend called Jennifer at work and was told
she had not arrived yet. When she did not show up for work, her
employer immediately called us, her family, to see if we knew
where Jennifer was, we tried to reach her at her condo and on her
cell phone and computer but attempts were unsuccessful. Police
were notified and the journey into Jennifer’s personal Hell
began. Reaction was quick, within 2 hours of not being at work -
her disappearance was known and being acted on by family and
police. Upon reaching Jennifer’s condominium by mid afternoon,
we found it normal. Everything was clan and in place. She had
obviously slept in her bed, taken a shower (wet towel and shower)
and had a couple outfits on the bed she was choosing to wear. Her
tracks seem to cease from when she left her condo for work usually
around 7:30-7:45am each work day. By 4 pm, family and friends of
Jennifer had fliers made and being distributed within the
immediate area of her condominium located at Mosaic at Millenia
condominiums next to the Mall at Meillenia, Orlando, Fl. and
awareness has not stopped since.
On Thursday 1/26/06 at high noon, police were notified that
Jennifer's car was abandoned in a condominium complex 1.2 miles
down the same road from where she lived in The Huntington on the
Green Condominiums at the corner of Texas and Americana Ave in
Orlando, Fl.. Her car was parked by a Suspect (on video) who
pulled into a visitors parking space waited 32 seconds to exit her
car and walked away, never looking back. Please see the video of
the Suspect on this website. There is a reward of up to $5,000 for
the identification and/or whereabouts of Jennifer. Tips may be
called into Crimeline 1-800-423-8477 or to FBI directly @
1-866-838-1153. There were valuables left in Jennifer’s car, so
police do not feel it was for robbery or carjacking, but for
Jennifer, herself. Bloodhounds tracked a scent from where her car
was found back to her condo complex losing the scent on Jennifer’s
condo property. Tips CONTINUE to come in for which we are thankful
Jennifer is a strong, fun loving, career minded, responsible young
woman. If she was running late to work she would have called which
is why we all became concerned immediately. At no time had
Jennifer shown signs of discontent with her life, relationships or
work environment, quite the opposite in fact.
Please keep Jennifer in your thoughts and visit this website for
updates and pass it on often to all you know – Awareness will
find Jennifer. Please think about everyone you know - if you
believe someone you know or suspect someone you may know or might
be involved, please call Crimeline or FBI immediately and share
that information it may be nothing or it may be the missing piece
of information that will help bring Jennifer home . Thank you for
caring, keeping Jennifer in the forefront of your minds and please
never give up on her, someone knows something.
