Jessica Lee Cassidy

March 26, 1981January 3, 2019

Jessica passed away unexpectedly on Thursday morning, Jan 3, 2019, while visiting friends in Loxahatchee. She was 37 years old and had been residing in Port Saint Lucie, FL , for the past two years, formerly of West Palm Beach area. A very loving person, she had many friends.

She is survived by her mother, Jennifer L. Sullivan Beyer, of Port Saint Lucie; father, Derry Cassidy of South Carolina; brother, Brenden Beyer of Palm Beach Gardens, and sister, Kimberly Filippone. Jessica left a son, aged 2, Kevin Carson Cassidy, currently residing with his father in Ocala, FL; grandparents, Judith Blanchard of Port Saint Lucie, Robert A. Sullivan Sr., of West Palm Beach; an aunt, Lynne Sullivan, of West Palm Beach; uncles, Todd Cassidy of South Carolina, Christopher Sullivan of Royal Palm Beach, Robert A. Sullivan currently of Port Saint Lucie; a nephew, Grant Sullivan, of Royal Palm Beach, and a niece, Angelyna Filippone of Belle Glade.

At an early age Jessica showed a wonderful talent and love for entertaining. She had a sweet singing voice and she had a fascination for the late Elvis Presley whom she loved to impersonate as a child. She gave quite a performance at age 10, holding her own show at a roller skating rink in WPB, singing, moving and impersonating Elvis. There were other shows using her singing talents a various Elk Lodges in WPB and a benefit show performing with friends on a flat truck in WPB. She also had her own show, singing country music favorites at age 11 in her own section of the South Florida Fair.At age 14 Jessica won the title, “Miss Teen Palm Beach County of 1995”.

She graduated high school in Wellington, FL. She then graduated from the Health Institute in Orlando where she earned a certificate for Massage Therapy and since then had practiced massage and has had many satisfied clients over the years. We all agreed that Jessica had that magic healing touch in her hands. I am sure they will miss her very much as will her family and friends.

She was also Palm Beach County’s representative for American Idol and did shows traveling to Las Vegas, Nevada. Greg A. Stevens has been supporting her career since around the age of 13 and will be handling and helping with the Memorial - Celebration of Jessica's life which will be held at 3:00pm on Sunday, February 3, 2019 at the Eckankar Center of the Treasure Coast 541 SE Central Parkway in Stuart FL 34994.

Jessica was always good at keeping in touch, sharing kind words and shining her beautiful light. Anyone that had the chance of coming into her path would instantly agree that Jessica was nothing but kind.

I’m so so sorry to find out about the heartache that family and all the people she touched are experiencing. So much sadness not having her physical body here with us any longer. But one thing is definite, she has a powerful spirit that will always be present and send many messages. Her nurturing nature will continue to embrace the ones she loves.

I can still hear her laughter in my mind and feel all the love in her HUGE HUGS!!!

One month before her passing, December 3rd, was the last time she messaged me. Part of the message included a poem.... I feel the need to share...

SLOW DANCE
Have you ever watched kids on a merry-go-round?
Or listened to the rain slapping on the ground?
Ever followed a butterfly's erratic flight?
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?
You better slow down.
Don't dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won't last.
Do you run through each day on the fly?
When you ask, “How are you?”
Do you hear the reply?
When the day is done, do you lie in your bed,
with the next hundred chores running through your head?
You'd better slow down
Don't dance so fast.
Time is short
The music won't last.
Ever told your child,
We'll do it tomorrow?
And in your haste,
Not see his sorrow?
Ever lost touch, let a good friendship die
Cause you never had time
To call and say,'Hi'
You'd better slow down.
Don't dance so fast.
Time is short.
The music won't last..
When you run so fast to get somewhere,
You miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift....
Thrown away.
Life is not a race.
Do take it

You will be missed sweet Jess and are forever in our hearts. 🙏🏻

Oh my sweet Jess...I have awesome middle school memories of you! We went to the fairgrounds together and I’d listen to you sing like an angel! I’ve never met someone that had a constant ray of angelic light around them like you. You talked and helped me through some rough times back then and I’m forever grateful. Seeing you at the DMV back in October was a sign that I was supposed to see you for a reason after all these years. You touched so many lives in ways that I hope you knew. This doesn’t seem real. Your spirit, light and soul will forever be missed by many. Love you to infinity and beyond, always and forever and that’s a pinky promise! Fly high you sweet angel.
