It was 1981, the date was the 20th of May when Jennifer Joyce Kesse decided to enter our world as a beautiful and healthy little girl. Jennifer was our first born child and she was welcomed with love into our lives. Jennifer brought us joy that was unmeasurable at the time, we were a new Family. That was 38 years ago this May 20th and Jennifer has been Missing 13 of those years. Too hard to believe let alone fully comprehend and understand. This will be the 14th Birthday we will Celebrate without Jennifer. We will do as we always do, make a great dinner of family favorites and raise a glass to Jennifer! Then cut the ice cream cake after singing Happy Birthday. It’s always a bitter sweet day and honestly one of the hardest of the year to get through. We love you Jennifer and miss you - Happy Birthday!
We want to thank you all for your continued support of our efforts to find Jennifer. Our Go Fund Me campaign has generated over $39,000 to date and we are greatly appreciative to those who have helped us financially, it is quite humbling. It is also the only way our efforts to find Jennifer can continue to move forward. As we work through Jennifer’s case files as they come in it is obvious at this point it is going to be a fight to find Jennifer. Our Investigative team is making headway and we have great Hope that the pieces of this crime can be put together, however it will be with little help from police case files unless something drastically changes with their content. We are still looking for that one call, one lead to shine light on Jennifer. Please help us if you have any information.

We thank you for your consideration of our need,

Certain Sorrows Never
- By Brigitte
“And no matter what anybody says about grief and about time
healing all wounds, the truth is, there are certain sorrows that
never fade away until the heart stops beating and the last breath
is taken” – Tiffanie DeBartolo
Search For Jennifer Kesse –
has been 10+ 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 the 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.
