Why we do it

This is Jessica Ann Faber. She loved to entertain. She sang in tune before she spoke full sentences. Singing, acting, dancing music, theater and movies were her greatest passions. Participation in performing arts instruction helped her to become the amazing and successful person she was becoming.

Jessica's dream included going to Hollywood one day and working behind a movie camera. On December 29, 2009, Jessica was driving home for Christmas vacation from her first semester in college where she was studying photography. A wrong-way driver under the influence of drugs and alcohol hit Jessica's car bringing her life and dreams to a sudden halt at the young age of 18.

Jessica never had a chance to fulfill her passions. Through JAFF, you can give art students the chance Jessica never got to know... A chance to pursue their dreams!
