"You can shed tears that she is gone,
or you can smile because she has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that she'll come back,
or you can open your eyes and see all she's left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see her,
or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember her only that she is gone,
or you can cherish her memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind,
be empty and turn your back.
Or you can do what she'd want:
smile, open your eyes, love and go on.”
This memorial website was created to remember our dearest Jessica Faye Ericzon who was born in Watertown, New York on March 27, 1990 and passed away on February 22, 2008. You will live forever in our memories and in our hearts.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESS FROM THE ONES WHO LOVE AND MISS YOU
March 27, 2013
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MISS JESS
Today you would have been 23 years old. There is not a day that goes by that you and Jon are not thought of. I know today will be a hard day for your mom to get through. Be with her and give her strength. So much more is going on now concerning Gardasil. The video will be coming out soon telling of the families that have been grieving with the loss of a member that has died or has been effected with adverse side effects by this vaccine. We continue to fight because of you.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JESS
March 24, 2013
This is a picture of me when Jess, Tim and myself went for a bike ride in the fall of 2004, I was happy then and everything was going our way. When I look at the picture now I see someone who was happy, some how I just don't feel like that person anymore. I'ts just so different without you Jess I feel kind of lifeless. I miss you
5 years ago today February 22
February 22, 2013
It's so hard to believe it has been 5 years ago today that I received the call to tell me you were gone. I could not believe what I was hearing. My heart stopped for a brief second. It could not be true!!! I was getting ready for a dinner that the men of our church have every year to show their appreciation to the women in the church. Stan and I will be going again tonight as the dinner is tonight. My heart will not be in it because I will be thinking of that phone call I received 5 years ago when our whole world changed. I think back to what your plans were and where you would be in your life at this time if you were still with us. My thoughts at that time were how to get up there to be with your mom. Planes were not flying and trains were all booked up because of the bad snow storm the east was having. Driving was the only way to get there. We loaded up mom (she was here with us at that time) and Stan and I started for Verginia where brother Steve met us and drove mom and I the rest of the way north. Stan returned home. It seems like only yesterday that this all happened. The years pass but your memory will always be with us and all the fun times we had. KEEP SHINING ON MISS JESS.
Our Children Will Not Be Forgotten
August 29, 2012
Though I don't know you...and I cannot imagine the reality of raising a beautiful baby girl for 18 years only to lose her to what you thought would protect her....I do live every day with vaccine injury. My son is only three but my what we have already missed. Vaccines stole his words, stole his beautiful eyes looking into mine and robbed me and our family of so many of the things that make parenting so special. But he is my heart and I continue to fight for him and his recovery every day. I am so sorry you don't have that chance but you are still fighting for your daughter by sharing your story. Thank you for doing so from the bottom of my heart. We cannot let our children be forgotten. I will not let it happen and I am so happy you won't either. I will keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers. I know Jessica doesn't need them because she is smiling down at you from a far better place than the world we live in. May you have have peace and again thank you for sharing Jesscia's story.

I don't know what to say I just wanted to send love and support to Jessie's mom. I'm a Jessie and my son is vaccine injured. I hope we will feel some peace and see some justice. <3
My research brought me to your story...
March 12, 2012
My children have doctor appointments this week. The pediatrician has been suggesting Gardasil for a while and I put it off. My oldest Erika is a beautiful 17 year old senior in high school, and she goes off to college this coming fall. Just 7 weeks of high school left, and I started thinking, I need to look into this and admit that she may be exposed to hpv in the near future. She has a 13 year old sister and 11 year old brother, and even they are old enough to get hpv vaccines. I am a selective vaccinator as it is and we started late and only did some of them, but I was on the verge of doing this one. As you said in one of your articles, everyone would want to protect their child from cancer. But something made me search "my daughter died from gardasil." I guess after reading on wikipedia that there have been some deaths, I just thought, don't give a crud about statistical odds, to the parents of those children, that small percent is 100% important. And my search led me to Jessie. I just wanted you to know that lives have surely been saved due to your loss. I am so sorry your beautiful daughter is gone. I wanted to thank her and you though for getting the word out and protecting others. I appreciate it from the bottom of my heart. - Josie in TN
