Jess expressed: “Three months ago, my sweet husband of 40 years, John, was diagnosed with terminal liver cancer. Since that time, with weekly visits from hospice, my daughter Allison, her new husband Wade, our son Cole and I have been caring for John at home. This has been far and away the most painful period of my life, and our children’s. At the same time it has been richly rewarding. Because John James has spent his entire life helping others, And most especially taking care of us, his family. For us to be able to devote ourselves to him in his home with all that entails, and give him love and care and comfort from the people he loves the most, was our honor.In the end, his greatest gift to us and all grievers, is the @griefrecoverymethod, the company he founded. That gift will guide all of us through the daily heartbreak of living without him.”

Our sincerest condolences to Jess, and her family and loved ones during this difficult time. We know how much Jess and John loved one another for over four decades.

Such sad news. A 40-year marriage is a success story on its own. I hope Jess has a strong support system to help her. She’s a great actress and is, by all accounts, a lovely person. I remember her from guest starring roles in 1970s TV classics. My best to her and her loved ones.
