Letter August 2014
With the summer months coming to an end, seasons changing and
school starting up in just a few days here in Florida, It seems
like it has been an eternity since Jennifer was Taken from us over
8 1/2 years ago and at the same time it seems like a blink of an
eye. The investigation into Jennifer’s Abduction and her
continued absence since January 24, 2006 is active and leads
continue to come in that need to be worked. We thank all of you
for keeping awareness very high for Jennifer. To the best of our
knowledge The Orlando Police Department continues in a quiet yet
steady and persistent manner in trying to track Jennifer or any
person(s) who has any knowledge of her Abduction or whereabouts.
We can’t say it is easy to sit by and have great Hope Jennifer
is always a priority at OPD, that someone somewhere will finally
come forward with the information so desperately needed to find
Jennifer and bring her home. It’s very difficult in reality. The
fact is though, as long as there is proactive action on the part
of Law Enforcement, the Media who has been there every step of the
way for Jennifer and You - the 100’s of thousands of people
around our country and world who have help us keep Jennifer’s
name, face, story and a way to give information available and
easy. We are all doing what we need to do at this point in time
and You have never wavered. From this website to Facebook, Twitter
and the like You, the General Public, have given so much to
Jennifer and us her Family. It is also You- the General Public who
have solved the majority of heinous crimes against our loved ones
and brought home those who are Missing. It is proven time after
time that the public has the power and is the key to revealing the
knowledge needed to solve crimes. It is our belief that in the end
it will be You – just a regular person out there which will
someday reveal the knowledge we seek to find Jennifer. It’s
there now, we have tried every way we know to ask anyone to come
forward with the information we need to end Jennifer’s
Abduction. It has always been there, we just have not been able to
reach the right person in the right way to make them feel strong,
brave, responsible and do the right thing – Tell someone what
you know! Something that seems so simple and easy to us yet has
turned out to be incredibly difficult for those that do know what
happened to Jennifer. People are always asking us how we feel. How
are we holding up? How do we go on?….We are here to tell you we
ask ourselves the same questions daily as to how someone who has
the Knowledge feels holding it in? How are they holding up? How do
they go on knowing they could end a horrific crime in an instant?
How do they do it? Isn’t it ironic?
So we ask as we have for all this
time, please do not give up on Jennifer. She needs each and every
one of us and more. Her case is solvable everyone agrees on that.
We know it has been a long time, we know you are sometime weary,
so are we, but please continue to do what you have done in the
past. Pass on this website to all you know, ask them to read about
Jennifer’s story and do the same. Visit and like her Facebook
Community and Page, Twitter her, for her, about her. Together we
will meet our biggest challenge of bringing home Jennifer.

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.
