Jessica Marie Bolt, entered into our world as Jessica Marie Lenehan on February 13th, 1985 to the grateful parents of Susan E. Beahm and Timothy J. Lenehan. She came into this world in Elizabeth, NJ at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital. In our Lords’ miraculous intervention, HE called her to his presence on HIS most Holy Day, Easter Sunday, April 17th, 2022 at the age of 37 years young. We might wish such a privilege.
Jessica smiled on her first day here and never stopped smiling. She was always happy, always full of joy. In her first year at her grammar school St. Joseph the Carpenter in Roselle, NJ, Jessica coined the nick name as Gabby Girly! Jes would talk to any and every one she was around. More than once or twice, the school would call and ask to try have Jessica stop talking so much. We did not comply because why would you stop the best part of life from happening?
And, that was Jessica, to everyone she came in contact with. She had the kindest of hearts, caring for all creatures, and always putting others first.
In her short time with us, Jessica had a lifetime of experiences to match many. From her journeys as a People to People Ambassador to England, Scotland, Ireland and Whales in the summer of 2000 at the age of 15, to her high seas excursions in the Navy on the JFK Battleship for the USA!
The best part and pinnacle of Jessica’s life came to be on March 9th, 2008 with her pride and joy, the love of her life, the birth of Savannah!
Savannah, or more lovingly known as Savi, changed the purpose and direction for Jessica forever. Always putting Savi first and foremost. Jessica strived and achieved greatness starting at Merrill Lynch as and entry level IT support tech. She quickly climbed through the ranks and rose to a Program Manager position within several months overseeing multiple projects at one time with security sensitive clients.
For all those who have had the privilege of being part of her life, we love and have immense gratitude. At times as we say, it takes a village to raise a child. Our small village was found in the long standing friendship of The Bohanan family who also helped provide a stable home and environment for Jessica to grow within. She will also be missed and always loved by her family, daughter Savi, parents Sue McDonough and Tim and wife Lily Lenehan, Grandmother Sue Beahm, siblings Owen, Brenda, Alexa, Vanessa, Timmy, Christopher and Keira, nephew Bryson, uncle Mike and aunt Amy Lenehan, uncle Patrick Lenehan, uncle Kurt and aunt Kathy Beck. Her cousins Megan, Kaitlyn, Brian, Kevin and Kelly, and her former husband Tyler Bolt.
