Jessica is survived by her mother and stepfather Tina and Dave Leon, father and stepmother Terry and Julie Morton, brother Daniel Morton and his girlfriend Lisa Manzo; grandparents Wayne and Diane Weaver, Royse and Beverly Upshaw, Bud and Gerry Lloid, and Dave Leon Sr.; aunt and uncle Wayne and Stephanie Weaver, Randy and Apryl Morton, Dave Morton, Kimberly Morton, and Nicky and Kevin Rothlesberger; cousins Sarah Morton, Amber Morton, Robert and Anastasia Morton, Ashley Madden, Gavin Weaver, Kameron Weaver and Marley Morton; niece Aaliyah Morton, who was the light of her life.

Jessica was preceded in death by many special people - Terry Patterson, Freda Weaver, Chad Morton, Cindy Morton, Ricky Morton, Dawn Madden and so many others.
