Jessica's Story


A Life of Purpose

The Jessica Costanzo Scholarship Fund was established in November 2014 when our only child was killed in a car accident.

Jessica was the world to us and she touched many lives in her 23 short years. She graduated from Epiphany Cathedral School, Venice High, and Webber International University. She played volleyball at each level. Jessica was an honor student who was active in sports whether playing or coaching.

Our community honored her by dedicating a softball field at Wellfield in Venice, a place where she spent many hours practicing and playing.

When Jessica walked into a room, she lit it up with her smile and effervescent personality. We miss Jessica every day but continue her legacy with the scholarships that have been awarded in her name.

To date, twenty eight students have received Jessica’s Scholarships. Our daughter lives a “Life of Purpose” and we will continue to honor her legacy with this scholarship fund.
