About the Jessie Rees Foundation
The Jessie Rees Foundation is the legacy of 12-year-old Jessica Joy Rees, better known as "Jessie." Jessie was one of 300,000 children worldwide who are diagnosed with cancer each year. During her courageous ten-month fight with two brain tumors, Jessie created JoyJars, fun-filled gifts of joy to share with her peers who were fighting cancer. With the help of friends and family, Jessie personally stuffed and sent out 3,000 JoyJars to kids fighting cancer in homes and hospitals, encouraging them with her motto "NEGU"-Never Ever Give Up!
