Joyce and Drew Kesse, Jennifer Kesse

January 24, 2006-the day Jennifer, our 24 year old daughter was abducted, her life and our life and the lives of so many that love "Jenn" changed forever. When Jenn did not arrive at work, her employer knew something was wrong. We were contacted by 11:00 a.m., after they had tried to contact her by cell and landline to no avail. Their IT department checked her computer to see if perhaps she had an off-site meeting; this was not the case. Jenn, always responsible, would call her employer if she was running late or caught in traffic, she'd been with them for four years and this was not typical. All who attempted to contact her, were shocked that her cell phone went directly into voice mail. This was atypical itself, as she never turned her phone off - she'd had that same phone number for eight years!

Jenn remains missing, endangered - her case active, led by Orlando Police Department, with assistance from multiple agencies. Immediate response: the evening of her abduction we had already created flyers and had friends/ family/ coworkers and volunteers handing out flyers at street corners near her home. Her condominium complex was blanketed with flyers - every car, every door - so that the morning of Wednesday, January 25, 2006 those living and working in the complex could not miss the fact that she was missing. On Thursday, January 26, a resident in the complex where her car was found had watched the morning news and recognized Jenn's car while taking his children to the school bus. He promptly called the police. Her car was found 1.2 miles from her home, which was dropped off at noon on the day of her abduction. Video footage from cameras at the location show a suspect meticulously parking her car, sitting in it for 31 seconds, getting out of the car and then walking away. Items in the car of value were left on the back seat. It was clear the motive was not robbery. Local and national media coverage ensued and despite over 1,000 leads, Jenn was not found. To this day, we are still contacted by local and national media to help bring Jenn home and to continue with helping keep the AWARENESS alive - which we all know is key!
