Jennifer Kesse Bill Passed by Florida House … Awaits Governors Signature

Jennifer Kesse has been missing since January 24, 2006 in Orlando, FL. Jennifer_Kesse5Jennifer’s parents have been regular guests of Scared Monkeys and have been true inspirations to those who have lost loved ones. Drew and Joyce Kesse have worked with Florida House of Representatives to create a bill intended to help future missing adults.

The parents of Jennifer Kesse have truly been inspirational in their efforts to find their missing daughter.

 Joyce Kesse, Jennifer’s Mother:
“It’s hard, very hard, but we remain devoted and committed to finding Jennifer, and we will not stop. We’ll scream from the mountains to keep the awareness out there. We are blessed to have the family and friend support we have and the support of the community, which continues to astound us.”

Drew Kesse, Jennifer’s Father:
“They will continue on, they will never stop. They have promised us that.”

The Kesse’s have fought long and hard to find their missing daughter as well as trying to establish laws that will help families in the future of missing adults.

The house passed a bill on Friday requiring law enforcement to send out alerts within two hours for any missing person under the age of 25.

The cutoff use to be 18 and as a result, it did not apply when Kesse went missing.

The bill is named for Kesse and Tiffany Sessions, who vanished from the University of Florida 18 years ago.

The bill still requires the governor’s signature.

Bill Proposed By Kesse’s Parents Passes

Jennifer Kesse Still Missing, Video Tape Released by Police

16 months into the investigation into the disappearance of Jennifer Kesse, Orlando police Kesse_Drewhave released a video tape of what they say is a suspect in the case. The supposed break in this case is more or less information that has been present for quite some time. However, now the police have agreed to make public this information and let the general public see the video.


The problem is, they lack a clear photo, a name and cannot say for sure whether it is a man or a woman.

But after months of debate between Kesse’s parents and detectives — and solid leads exhausted — police decided Thursday to release a grainy, out-of-focus, wide-angle surveillance-camera video showing a person who parked Kesse’s car at a south Orlando condominium complex. The suspect, estimated to be 5 feet 3 inches to 5 feet 5 inches tall, then was recorded walking away by another security camera about noon Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2006. (Sun Sentinel)

Jennifer Kesse: Still Missing Without a Trace

A week ago the Orlando police released that grainy video to the public. The video shows someone parking Kesse’s car in a condominium lot near her home on the day she disappeared.

Police say they didn’t release the video earlier because they were hoping to use it to check the story of any suspects. Sgt. Barbara Jones of the Orlando Police Department told ABC News that the video was held back “as an investigative tool to be able to lock a suspect into the story,” but added that “its release could generate more leads, significant leads which may break the case.”

Police hope that, despite the rough quality of the video, it might jog someone’s memory about seeing that person that night. Kesse, at 5 feet 8 inches, is at least four inches taller than the person on the video. She has sandy blond shoulder-length hair and green eyes and weighs 125 pounds. But the past week has yet to yield results. (ABC News)

On The Record interview with Drew & Joyce Kesse, transcript from “On the Record ,” May 17, 2007

DREW KESSE: I think they’re father ahead. Are we close? No, I don’t think we’re close. There’s a lot still just very unknown. You know, a lot of times, the word vanishment (ph) comes up. I have to be honest with you. But leads are still being called in every day. It’s an amazing thing that, you know, 15-and-a-half months, we still get leads. We have a personal lead phone. Just last week, there were seven leads on that phone alone that came to us. So the community is very aware, and actually, the United States is very aware. And the calls come in, they just have not been the proper call.

Do Not Forget … Jennifer Kesse Still Missing

Please do not forget that Jennifer Kesse is still missing. To Drew and Joyce Kesse it is like day one of their daughter Jennifer’s disappearance. However, after all this time the Kesse’s have no answers. Some one out their knows something. Please come forward.

“Nothing thus far has indicated she’s been murdered, but at the time nothing’s indicated that she’s alive either,” Joyce Kesse said. “So we take the positive approach and remain hopeful that Jen will be found. But we want, even if it ends up not being a happy reunion, to find her no matter what.”

Bill Gilmour, Jennifer’s uncle and a former Barnegat mayor, believes the best approach now is spreading the word by e-mailing the Web site link to friends and printing out the poster to tape on cars and storefronts.

“We need the help of the public,” he said. “Somebody out there knows something about this case. (Asbury Park Press)

Jennifer Kesse Missing for Nine Months … The Search Continues

It is hard to believe that Jennifer Kesse has been missing for 9 months. Jennifer Kesse Jenniferkesse2disappeared from her Orlando condo and has not been seen from since. Jennifer’s parents, Joyce and Drew Kesse have searched continuously and have stated, “they are not giving up on the search for their daughter”. Nor should they. As any parent of a missing child their fight is never over until an outcome is provided.

A national search keeps coming back to John Young Parkway and Americana Boulevard.

Jennifer Kesse’s family gathered at the intersection on Tuesday to remind passing drivers about the search. They were there from 7:30 to 9 a.m. and will gather again from 5 to 6:30 p.m. because they said that’s when Jennifer Kesse would have passed through the intersection on her way to and from work.

“We need to find Jennifer,” Drew Kesse said. “We are willing to do anything.”

Having spoke to Drew Kesse in the past, I believe this. He is a determined man that will never stop searching for his missing daughter. As Drew Kesse said, We are not going away”. If it is any consolation to the Kesse’s, neither are we.

Drew Kesse will be interviewed by Dana Pretzer on the Scared Monkeys Radio network on Sunday, October 29 at 9:00 pm EDT.

The Kesse’s are holding out hope as are we.

“Miracles happen, and who’s to say that Jennifer’s not going to get a miracle?” Joyce Kesse said.

Also please see the person of interest pictures.

For further updates and information, please go to the families website. I would  also ask that all go to and read the letter from Jennifer’s parents regarding the 9 month mark of Jennifer’s disappearance. Remember that all parents of missing children belong to a club of which no one wishes to be a member of. God bless Joyce and Drew Kesse that they get the answers they so desperately need.

Anyone who has any information regarding Jennifer Kesse please call CrimeLine at 800-423-TIPS. Also the family has its own hot line at 407-772-2162

Jennifer Kessee Still Missing, Playing cards Handed out to Prisoners

Jennifer Kesse has been missing in Orlando, FL for 8 months. Drew and Joyce Kesse have devised some interesting ways of getting their daughters picture out to the public.



Drew and Joyce Kesse said they want to get information about their daughter out to the public. Now they are putting the information on the back of playing cards, which they’ll send them to jails.

“We feel that it’s one more opportunity to make a percentage of the population aware, and that percentage of the population will be people in jail,” Drew Kesse said. “Obviously, they are criminals if they’re in jail, and I think at this point, we’re looking for a criminal.”

He said he hopes they’ll be playing with cards featuring Jennifer Kesse’s face on a daily basis.

“And maybe someone says, ‘Hey, you know what? I know something about that and it’s time,’” Drew Kesse said. (WESH)
