I was one of her students. I had her for art last year and this year my homeroom class spent a lot of time with her. It’s heartbreaking that we cannot have more time with her. She was such a loving person. Sending love and prayers to you. ❤️

Hi guys❤ I am very sorry for your lost... Jessica was my art teacher and I loved her a lot... When I found out this happened I legit broke down into tears... She was such a good person and I don't know what has caused her to do this... I am praying for her kids and her family... As I am her 2nd quarter 1 period class I didn't get to know her that well... But I know that she is very good at art and has a lot of talent... I hope she does beautiful art in heaven... I am hoping for the best❤😭

We are so very sorry for your loss. I was heartbroken to hear of Jess’s passing. My husband and I graduated from North Clarion with Jess. I was also lucky to have worked with her for a short time at Abraxas. I will always remember her warm/kind personality and all of the awesome things she created through her art.
Our deepest sympathy to her family.

Brian, Please know how sorry I am for your loss. I didn't know her well, but I know she helped raise a wonderful little boy. I will be there to support him in any way possible. I just went through the death of my mom and have personal experience with the hospice counselors, they are great! I would highly recommend them to your family in this time of grief. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

To the family of Jessica Salapek, I knew Jess briefly when she was employed at Warren State Hospital. She was a very kind and caring person. Her artwork showed such talent. May I extend my deepest condolences to you all during this sad time. May Jess be at peace and may you all eventually find comfort in fond memories to replace the heartache and sadness you now feel. God Bless you all.
