While we only knew "Nessa" for a short time, while she studied at the JVS this year, all of the staff and students, who knew her, were honored to have her in their presence. Her smile and positive attitude made a lasting impression on all of us. As an officer of her vocational youth club, and leader in her precision machine technology lab, she demonstrated the true characteristics of a fine leader and role model. She will truly be missed and our condolences go out to all of her family and friends. Stay strong and celebrate the life of our dear one...Dawn BalogLorain County JVS Instructor
