I worked at Boone Elementary for a short time when Evan was a student there. I just remember his blonde hair, sweet smile, and happy go lucky attitude. I was lucky enough to see and speak to Evan in September albeit under sad circumstances but again I got see that fabulous smile and joyous spirit. Sending prayers of comfort to family and friends of Evan Helle Jae.
Rest in peace beautiful angel! 😇

Helle Jae was a great student and an incredible human. She brought joy and acceptance into my classroom. I would love it if every semester I had a student like her. I was so incredibly saddened to hear of your passing...it was my first experience as a teacher to hear of the loss of a student. Rest in peace, thank you for making me a better teacher, and a better person.

You were always so full of light. I remember you for your humor and the ability to make anyone laugh. You were never afraid to stand up for what you believe in, and it was inspiring to those around you, me included. Rest easy.

It was of the utmost pleasure of getting to know the beautiful soul helle Jae was. Meeting her in high school as a junior and she a freshman, I always felt a need to protect her. Helle was a very charismatic, smart, opinionated individual that just made you feel so deeply loved in her presence. She gave the best hugs ever! I will forever cherish the moments I had with her. Whether it be picking her up for school, dropping her off at home, taking her to lunch or Marching by her side in band. I’m so blessed to have been able to be in a part of her 20 years of loving life. I miss you Helle and will forever continue to celebrate the beautiful human you were. Rest easily baby.

You were very nice to let me visit your house at Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve. I loved hanging out in the office and playing on the computer with the other kids. The cat kept getting in the chair.

I moved here from China in August 2008 and came for the first one as Iron Man. Then I was Darth Vader and a Ninja. I cannot remember the others.

I will always remember you.

What I will remember most about this special grandchild of my special friend Jann--those big expressive eyes that pulled you into her inner joy and that wide warm smile that told you she was happy to be in your presence.
Evan-Helle loved animals.My sweetest memory is of this gentle child appearing at my door with Gran Jann.She addressed me as Reebie because she could not articulate Ruby.She would politely ask if she could go to my jungle and play with my animals.When the door opened she knew exactly where to go.Eyes fixed forward,she purposefully marched through the house and made her way to my bedroom and collection of stuffed lions, tigers, elephants, gorillas and more.Ever-so-gently she would line them up and examine them respectfully.When her curiosity was satisfied, she returned each stuffed creature to its rightful place in my bedroom jungle.Then as quickly as she appeared,Evan-Helle was ready to leave until next time.Her visits were never long--just long enough to remind me that this special little someone shared my love for jungle animals.That special little someone grew up to be an extraordinary person.
My jungle animals are a reminder of that special little visitor who became that extraordinary person.
Evan-Helle you will be remembered and you will be missed.
