We pay tribute to Jesyka  Collins  on the eve of the first year of her passing from this life by SUDEP.

Two weeks before she passed away by SUDEP ( SUdden Unexpected Death in Epileptic Patients) Jesy shared three wishes she had for her work through NSDF. One week later, we celebrated her accomplishments in creating plan for these wishes while we enjoyed the first Thanksgiving Dinner she cooked all by herself for the entire family. One week later she was found, dead and alone. after putting her 7 yr old daughter on the school bus and kissing her fiance goodbye as he left for work. SUDEP had taken her while she was alone.

Tonight we honor her by sharing Jesy's Wish. Tonight is not about SUDEP or Awareness. Tonight is a personal hour shared with the public about my daughter, a young mother, and a good friend. Tonight is about Jesy and her Wish for National Seizure Disorders Foundation. Come along with me and share in honoring Jesyka Collins, 27 gone from the pain and stress of seizure disorder into the Peace and Freedom of Gods Love.

What were her wishes for NSDF?

  • To provide Hope and Love for the families left to gireve after SUDEP strikes
  • To provide life saving seizure alert canines to seizure survivors
  • To provide scolarships to young single adult seizure survivors or caregivers wanting to further thier education.

I still see the Joy in her face and hear the excitement in her voice as she relives every moment of creating Thanksgiving dinner for the family and as she spills out plans for her future with National Seizure Disorders Foundation. Her life will forever be honored at National Seizure Disorders Foundation and twice a year, firneds, family, and members of National Seizure Disorders Foundation will pause in memory for Jesyka Collins and in honor of Jesys Wish.
