Jessica N.

Jessica Nicole Duran

Our sister, Jessica Nicole Duran has found eternal peace on March 14, 2021. Jessica was born in Milwaukee December 6, 1988. At the tender age of 18 months old Jessica and our mother Geraldine K Duran had started a beautiful and strong bond through fostering which was consummated by adoption when Jessica was eight years old. At that point Jessica became our sister. She is survived by her siblings, James A Duran (Wanda), Debra L Movroydis (John) and Michael F Duran and her many nephews and nieces. Jessica and her niece Erica J Groff in many ways grew up together and experienced so many wonderful childhood memories. Even though technically Jessica was her auntie they were only eight years apart. Erica will dearly miss Auntie Jessica from those important years of her childhood and the fun they had growing up with mom/nana.

Jessica was a religious journal keeper. Always writing, always drawing and always thinking. Her artwork was beautiful and whimsical. She loved to read and she read everything, especially stories of medieval and epic fantasies and things that would take you away. She loved a good taco salad and to just go and take the bus and walk everywhere she could. She knew Milwaukee so well. Unfortunately Jessica had suffered for many years from some form of mental health issues which revealed itself when she was in her early teens. Our family had struggled with this and for her for many years, sadly the struggle and the fight is over.

“We all love you Jessica so very much and we will find comfort in knowing that you have finally found the peace that you were looking for.”

Private services will be held.
