Rodriguez, Jessica T.
Jessica T. Rodriguez, born on August 18, 1976 in Lynwood, CA. Raised in South
Central L.A., and educated in Berkeley, CA. at the University of California, Berkeley. Jessie, as she was better known by family and friends, won in the game of life. After being diagnosed with breast cancer in November of 2010, she began a strong, brave, and courageous battle against the disease. Triumphantly Jessie endured treatments and procedures which left physical scars but they did not break her spirit nor her will! On December 10, 2012, as she took her last breaths of life, her fierce warrior heart beat to a room full of FAMILIA and friends. We will forever remember Jessie's battle with breast cancer as victorious! She is now experiencing life on a greater plateau. One where there is no pain, no limits, the mysteries of life and its universe revealed plainly to see.
Jessie was survived by her beautiful and ever loving parents Marilynn and Dale Hughes, her wonderfully supportive and artistic brother Emiliano Rodriguez, her ever loyal and dedicated fiancé Ivan Mendoza, and thousands of friends who were touched deeply by her presence.
