"Mr. and Mrs. Kesse,
The Orlando Police Department in conjunction with Central Florida
Search and Rescue has just concluded a search of just over 200
acres of wooded terrain on the west side of International Drive
with certified dog teams.
The Orange County
Sheriff's Office Marine Unit assisted us by searching
Lake Bryan. Approximately a hundred people, including employees
volunteers, were utilized in this effort. Unfortunately, the
search did not
produce what we hoped for.
The search for Jennifer and the investigation into her
remains a priority for Detective Hatcher and I, as well as the
Police Department. We pray one day we will be able to give you the
answers and justice Jennifer deserves. Thank you for your
City of Orlando Police Department
January 2014 – 8 Years
This January 24th marks 8 years since Jennifer was last seen or
heard from. She has seemingly fallen off the face of the earth
through the heinous act of Abduction. We her family, friends and
even strangers miss Jennifer tremendously. The task of finding
Jennifer and bringing her home has only gotten more challenging at
this point in time with the passing of time, yet that fact will
not deter us from continuing our search and efforts to locate
Jennifer. To date there has been an incredible amount of energy
and resources utilized in the fight to find her yet she still
eludes us in every way. The efforts have also been the same in
trying to identify and locate the Person of Interest filmed
dropping Jennifer’s car off 1/24/2006 at high noon 1 mile down
the road from where Jennifer called Home in Orlando, Fl.. The
frustration this has brought not only to this family but to Law
Enforcement can no longer be measured. They simply don’t make
charts that go that high. On every level for 8 years Jennifer’s
case has shown little results and has stymied some of the best
Investigating agencies available to her. Her case has been handled
by approximately a dozen different investigators as well as 3
SMART Panels made up of the best of the best who have solved
cases, tough cases, as well as the FBI. Still, we hold out great
HOPE of finding Jennifer for we know that Someone Knows Something
that can end this desperate search quickly and successfully.
Jennifer needs that person(s) to step up and speak up NOW. We have
stated from day one that we will not rest, we will not stop the
awareness for Jennifer and we will not settle for anything less
than finding her. It is our unconditional love we have for her
that will give us the strength, ability and fortitude to continue
this fight until she is Found. It was love which created Jennifer
and it will be that love that finds her. We have said it many
times the trials and tribulations we go through truly mean little
to nothing compared to what Jennifer has or had endured for so
long. Our feelings, emotions, and wants mean nothing. It is
Jennifer that all energy, resources and actions should be used on.
We are merely the by-product of her crime.
To the person or persons who took Jennifer or have information
about Jennifer’s abduction we offer you this. We do not care who
took her, why she was taken, where she has been and what has been
done to her. All we care about at this point in time is EXACTLY
WHERE SHE IS so she is found/recovered and cared for in the proper
way in any manner needed, for the good or bad. We don’t care if
Jennifer’s crime was planned or just a crime of happenstance. We
don’t care if it was a mistake, an accident or passion or
punishment to her for something she may have done to someone or
thing. All those questions don’t really matter. What matters is
she is found and brought home. There is still a reward of $5,000
for information leading to Jennifer’s whereabouts. It’s there
for the taking for Information only. We call on any person with
information to make the call to Crimeline, 1-800-423-8477(TIPS),
No Names, No ID, just information, Orlando Police 407-246-2470(or
any of their direct #’s), FBI 1-866-838-1153 or a Lawyer who can
protect you, your identity and still access the reward money. We
know you may be scared. We know you may not think the information
you have is important, just make the call. A burden will be lifted
from your shoulders immediately.
Lastly, to Jennifer. We love you so much and miss you. A second
does not go by that we are not thinking of you and trying our very
best to do the things needed to find you and bring you home. We
are sorry we were not able to protect you. We are sorry there are
people in our world who feel it is OK to take another person
against their will. We are sorry it has taken so long and will
take even longer before we get to you, but we will. We will not
let evil win. We will not let mountains or oceans get in our way.
We will not let silence of those who know what happened stop us.
The information needed to find you will be uncovered and you will
be with us once again where you belong. That we promise.

Search For Jennifer Kesse –
has been 7+ years since Jennifer’s Abduction, we understand that
many visitors to this website are looking for more information
about what happened to our daughter, Jennifer, from the beginning.
We are very grateful to the local and national media for all the
coverage that has been provided for Jennifer and to our search
efforts - they have done a tremendous job. We cannot say enough
about the support of residents in the Orlando/ Central Florida
area and the volunteers who have come from all parts of our state
and country, including tourists visiting the area who have donated
their time to assist with our search efforts and continue to help
us keep awareness for Jennifer high. Jennifer needs to come home
and for no ones sake more than her own. The heinous crime of
Abduction is something no one should ever experience.
As means of re-capping Jennifer’s abduction - Jennifer, was
reported missing when she failed to show up for work at Central
Florida Investments, on the morning of Tuesday January 24th, 2006
in Orlando Fl. after a long weekend in St. Croix with her
boyfriend and other friends (they Flew both ways, there was no
cruise as some people think). For those of us close to Jennifer,
we knew something was wrong immediately. If she was going to be
late for work or a meeting she would call. In fact Jennifer had
good routines she and her boyfriend (who lives hours away in south
Florida and Jennifer in Orlando) called each other everyday while
driving to work in the morning and would speak with each other
every night before going to bed, having a long distance
relationship, seeing each other on weekends and Holidays. On
Monday, the morning of 1/23/06, Jennifer left her boyfriends home
in south Florida and drove directly to work in Ocoee Fl, not going
home first but directly to her work as she usually did when she
stayed the weekend in south Florida. On the night of Monday
January 23rd, Jennifer left work at approx 6pm, walking out of the
building, where she worked with her boss and wishing each other a
good evening and will meet again in the morning. That evening,
Jennifer talked to her Father, Mother, Brother and later with some
friends and her boyfriend by phone as usual and that was the last
anyone has seen or heard from Jennifer – Telephone call to her
boyfriend at 9:57 pm 1/23/06 – Monday night.
Jennifer and her boyfriend did not talk the morning of Tuesday,
January 24th. Her boyfriend called Jennifer at work and was told
she had not arrived yet. When she did not show up for work, her
employer immediately called us, her family, to see if we knew
where Jennifer was, we tried to reach her at her condo and on her
cell phone and computer but attempts were unsuccessful. Police
were notified and the journey into Jennifer’s personal Hell
began. Reaction was quick, within 2 hours of not being at work -
her disappearance was known and being acted on by family and
police. Upon reaching Jennifer’s condominium by mid afternoon,
we found it normal. Everything was clan and in place. She had
obviously slept in her bed, taken a shower (wet towel and shower)
and had a couple outfits on the bed she was choosing to wear. Her
tracks seem to cease from when she left her condo for work usually
around 7:30-7:45am each work day. By 4 pm, family and friends of
Jennifer had fliers made and being distributed within the
immediate area of her condominium located at Mosaic at Millenia
condominiums next to the Mall at Meillenia, Orlando, Fl. and
awareness has not stopped since.
On Thursday 1/26/06 at high noon, police were notified that
Jennifer's car was abandoned in a condominium complex 1.2 miles
down the same road from where she lived in The Huntington on the
Green Condominiums at the corner of Texas and Americana Ave in
Orlando, Fl.. Her car was parked by a Suspect (on video) who
pulled into a visitors parking space waited 32 seconds to exit her
car and walked away, never looking back. Please see the video of
the Suspect on this website. There is a reward of up to $5,000 for
the identification and/or whereabouts of Jennifer. Tips may be
called into Crimeline 1-800-423-8477 or to FBI directly @
1-866-838-1153. There were valuables left in Jennifer’s car, so
police do not feel it was for robbery or carjacking, but for
Jennifer, herself. Bloodhounds tracked a scent from where her car
was found back to her condo complex losing the scent on Jennifer’s
condo property. Tips CONTINUE to come in for which we are thankful
Jennifer is a strong, fun loving, career minded, responsible young
woman. If she was running late to work she would have called which
is why we all became concerned immediately. At no time had
Jennifer shown signs of discontent with her life, relationships or
work environment, quite the opposite in fact.
Please keep Jennifer in your thoughts and visit this website for
updates and pass it on often to all you know – Awareness will
find Jennifer. Please think about everyone you know - if you
believe someone you know or suspect someone you may know or might
be involved, please call Crimeline or FBI immediately and share
that information it may be nothing or it may be the missing piece
of information that will help bring Jennifer home . Thank you for
caring, keeping Jennifer in the forefront of your minds and please
never give up on her, someone knows something.
