It is with deep sorrow that we announce the unexpected passing of our beloved Jessica Lenay Leftwich. She is now in the warm and loving arms of our Lord and Savior.
Jessica was born and raised in Brooksville, Florida. Graduating from Hernando High School in 1996, Jessica was a proud member of the Leopard family. As a student of HHS, Jessica avidly participated in many school related and extracurricular activities such as softball, cheerleading and swimming.
As she grew into adulthood, Jessica embraced her family’s love of the outdoors, becoming passionate about camping, boating, fishing, looking for gators, and trail riding. Being an animal lover and advocate, Jessica would find herself taking in every stray dog that needed a home.
Those who knew Jessica know that she was a fun-loving, free spirited young woman who enjoyed life and bringing happiness to others. She was resolute and very determined. Once Jessica had her mind set on accomplishing something, she did what she had to do to make it happen. She could find her way through any difficult situation and come out on the other side a stronger person.
Jessica was the property manager of the Seven Acres RV Park. She touched the lives of many residents, becoming an integral part of their community.
Jessica is the daughter of Jeanne (Mitchell) and Paul Leftwich. She leaves behind her greatest joy and love, her son Noel, whom she cherished with all of her heart. Jessica will be forever loved and remembered by her fiancé, Eli Rodriguez. She is also survived by her brother, Sawyer Leftwich, and his wife, Courtney. Her brother, Nicholas Leftwich, precedes her in death.
Jessica will be dearly missed by her family and the many friends she has made along the way. Her infectious laughter and positive outlook on life will remain in our hearts and on our minds forever.
There will be a private service for the family.
