I can't believe how far Jessica has come over the years. I first saw her on 7th Heaven over ten years ago, and became a fan almost instantly. I caught up to her only movie at the time, Ulee's Gold, and I loved the personality she had there. It was so different than Mary Camden and I just knew Jess would be a fantastic actress! Well, eleven years has passed and she's gone so SO so incredibly far! I really look up to her and I am still amazed whenever I hear her new projects.
I think "wow, I knew her before she was really anyone", and she earned a name for herself beginning in 2002. In the course of seven years, she's done at least a dozen projects. Amazing.
