In Memorial of Jacque C. Vesce

As you enter our church you will see a plaque in Memorial of Jacque who passed away after attending the 5 o’clock Mass on Saturday, May 28th, 2016 and was shaking hands with me when she passed out. She did not recover.

I knew her since she was young girl for many years. She was also involved with CCD as teacher’s aide and many other things in our church.

In St. Mary’s 100 year history there was never anyone who passed away in the church like she did which is very rare.

I hope she will never be forgotten.
Please remember Jacque in your prayers.

Fr. Leon

Words will never describe how much you meant to me and how much I miss you now. Although our time together was short, you impacted my life in such a positive way and for that I am eternally grateful. I love you, Jacque. Rest in peace.

Witnessing your success both at RPS and in DC helped illuminate what I want to do and what paths are possible. Smart, driven, faithful, and enthusiastic -- you always demonstrated the qualities I wanted to emulate. Rest in peace, Jacque.

Jacque, you were one of a kind, and I am truly honored to have called you my friend. I can't believe you were taken from us so soon, but I know you are lighting up heaven like you lit up every life you touched down here. Rest easy, my love

The other day I heard of your passing and I cried.. When I first got to Prep you were the sweetest and the first girl I met. You were a true friend. I am beyond sorry that I didn't keep in touch the way I should have. You were a beautiful soul, Jacqueline Vesce.

Cam McGrory
Just now hearing about your passing and my mind is blown. I spent most of my college years with you around and it's hard to imagine you having not been there. From all the politics classes, last minute papers, days spent talking about how life might be and random conversations, you will be missed Jacqueline.

Our time with each other was cut way too short, but I'm still so grateful our paths crossed. You welcomed me with open arms when I first came to Rutgers prep. You were my lax buddy and someone I could always confined in. You always had a warm smile and bubbly contagious laugh. You were truly a remarkable friend. Thank you for all the amazing memories. You are missed tremendously. Rest in the sweetest peace Jacque.

Heaven gained another angel. I am so shocked and saddened to learn of your passing. One of the most genuine and kind people you will ever meet. I'm honored to have known you and led a group of awesome students transitioning from middle school to high school with you. You made their lives and my life better. The entire RPS community will miss you dearly as will I. May you Rest In Peace, Jacque. I'll see you again someday

I was hoping that I would wake up and this would all be but a horrible dream. I wish so much that that was true. Jacqueline, I couldn’t imagine life without you and I know that feeling is shared by so many others in the communities you were in. The entire CUA community has suffered a great loss in losing you and you will always be remembered by your bright smile that you were never seen without, your hard work and dedication to your work, friendships, family, and faith, and your picturesque class and style. I’m so lucky to not have only known you, but worked with you in and out of the classroom, shared some of the best memories I could ask for, and to have truly called you a friend. Jacqueline was so dedicated to her friendships that we would often meet while both in Vermont in the winter, even for just a few minutes, just so she could say hi. She would never miss an opportunity to help out not only her friends but everyone and anyone who needed it. We were supposed to celebrate my moving to her neighborhood next week and now I’ll never get the opportunity; I know my place could have used her knack for style and her energetic personality to welcome us to the area. Now, instead of celebrating our friendship getting closer, I will be taking the hardest drive to New Jersey to say goodbye. I will be joining many others from the CUA community in our condolences to your wonderful parents and family. They loved you so much, Jacque, and I know you loved them more than anything. Please look over us and always remember that you will never be forgotten, not even for a day. I love you and already miss you more than I could ever imagine RIP Jacqueline Vesce, 4/10/93-5/28/16

It's hard for me to think that my beautiful friend Jacqueline and I will never have another long talk, good meal and drink, or time to explore together on earth. It's hard for me to think that the strong, intelligent, warm, and encouraging woman who stood by my side in rough times in eighth grade won't be able to stand by any of her friends again here. She made my London trip special by being in it. She helped me pick out my recital dress. She kept my spirits up when I was frustrated with my new diagnosis of fibromyalgia. She was incredible. I miss her already. It makes my heart sing, however, to know that she will be with Jesus so soon. That any earthly suffering is over for her. That I will see her again soon, as will her family and so many friends, for she had countless people who loved and will continue to love her. I miss you already, my eighth grade best friend, but I cannot wait to see you again.
