Jessica Hockensmith
« on: November 23, 2011, 09:51:10 PM »
The College Debate community has suffered another inexplicable loss.  Jessica Hockensmith, a debater at MSU passed away yesterday.  Details are sketchy now.  All we know is that she passed away in her sleep and no cause of death has been determined yet. 

My heart goes out to her family, the MSU debate family, and everyone else who knew her.

Missing Jessica so much. My heart goes out to the folks at MSU. Once again the debate community has to pull together to get through the loss of one of our own. Such a sad day.

This is so shocking and terribly sad. Jessica was always so upbeat and vivacious. That's how I will remember her. I enjoyed judging her rounds & believed she had a bright future in the activity. My thoughts tonight are with the MSU squad and her family.  If there's anything that we outside East Lansing can do for those at MSU Debate, please let us know.

Let us all be that much more thankful tomorrow and everyday for those still with us.

In life, I've discovered that lessons are be best taught by the people we know. Jessica Hockensmith taught me that there's always good in someone. My heart, thoughts, and prayers go out to the MSU Debate team. I just can't believe she's gone.
