For years after Jennifer’s disappearance, it was not unusual to see the Kesse’s, Jennifer’s sorority sisters, friends, classmates, and members of the community standing with signs at busy intersections, or canvassing popular areas with fliers and Jennifer’s picture. The Kesse’s put her face on the Jumbotron at Orlando Magic games and NASCAR races and on hundreds of billboards across the state. They offered a million-dollar reward. Yet today, over 11 years later, the Kesse family knows as little as they did the day Jennifer disappeared.
Unfortunately, the constant vigilance to find Jennifer does not come without a high cost. Drew Kesse estimates he has spent between $300,000 and $500,000 in the past eleven years, with the hope that there will someday be good news in the search for his daughter.
As part of the renewed efforts to find Jennifer, there is a growing community of advocates taking interest in her case and generating new awareness. With your help, we can all step up to help alleviate some of the financial burden the Kesse’s have carried over the past 11 years.
The Kesse’s are wonderfully gracious people who want nothing more than to bring their daughter home. While bringing Jennifer home would be the ultimate gift, please join us in the effort to deliver another kind of gift to the Kesse family. No amount is too small. The donations from this fundraiser will be donated in their entirety to the Kesse family to be used at their discretion.
* Organizers note: The Kesse’s have never, in any way, asked for financial support. The Help Bring Jennifer Kesse Home community has independently taken the initiative to help.
