    Thank you for posting a message about my beautiful daughter Jessie. I miss her every day. She was an amazing young women who had just started as a special ed teacher (10th grade) at the Bushwick School for Social Justice. She was an amazing advocate and made such an impact on her students and colleagues wherever she was placed.
