    • I am so very sorry to hear of this news. I was fortunate to have been Jade’s fourth grade teacher. She was such a happy and sweet girl who worked so hard and loved to have fun. I can’t imagine what your family is experiencing with this loss. My thoughts and prayers for strength and comfort are with all of you.

    • We are so sorry for your loss and Jade surely will be missed. Kolton rode bus with Jade and talked about her often and in his senior year of high school when he got his license he gave Jade many rides to school so she didnt have to ride the bus and gave him company as they had become good friends. I got to meet her a few times also and she was a very nice person and we truly enjoyed her smile.
      I cant imagine as a parent how your heart aches without her, breaks my heart. You will always have the great memories to hold onto as she will be sadly missed.
      RIP Jade

    • I’m so sorry dear to read about this tragedy. My prayers are with you and your family in this time of pain and loss. Hold your memories close and hold your littles closer. I haven’t seen you in years but my heart breaks for you in this time of grief. I won’t say that time heals the open wounds cause I’d be lieing just hold tight to the memories and don’t let go.

    • I donot know you personally but as a parent my heart aches for your family. God bless you.

    • It really is difficult to find the words to say anything at all right now. My heart just aches. I was lucky enough to work with Jade for a year in Geometry class. When I think of her I think of her giggle and her little feisty personalty. I got to know a kind, gentle and genuine person with so much life in her. To her family and close friends, I pray for you all and will pray for Jade in heaven and I will not forget the positive impact she made on my life. I mourn with you all. Mr. Berg – Teacher/MHS
