EDITORIAL: Local Legend Jessica Paquin Has Passed

Jessica Paquin passed away Wednesday night from cancer.

Jessica was a legend.  

I met Jessica when I was seven years old. She was my director for Heidi’s Monkeys. Jessica was a great director and got the most out of everyone. Even when it looked like I wasn’t paying attention to my cues, she never lost faith in me.

Jessica wasn’t just my director, but my friend.

She would come to the house and film projects with her family. My little sisters would always look forward to seeing her when ever she came over because she could play on their level because she was a kid herself, right down to her goofy laugh and Star Wars socks.

Jessica was always very full of energy and happy. She had a way of making the people around me happy. Jessica was a true artist.

I am sad that Jessica is gone, but happy to have shared so many wonderful moments with her. I miss her already. My heart goes out to her Steven and her family.

    So sorry for your loss. Obviously you and many others were lucky to know and work with this wonderful woman.

      oh that’s super not true, a lot of criminals die young from drug overdoses. Not all of them are evil, but at the very least most are neutral.

    I don’t know what this sentence means: “She was my director for Heidi’s Monkeys.”
