Jesse started Pearls From My Mom when her mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer. Her mother has a nice set of pearls which she said she didn’t know what to do with since she wasn’t sure if people wear pearls anymore. Jesse told her the only pearls she truly cares about are the pearls of wisdom she has given her over the years.
One day, a chill ran down her spine and she was overcome with terror as she thought to herself “What if, one day my Mom is gone and I can’t remember all of her sparkling pearls of wisdom?” She knew she needed to take action so she started PearlsFromMyMom.com.
Jesse’s mom, Sara, passed away on July 2, 2015, and it has been the hardest thing she has ever gone through. Her mom was her best friend and the person she turned to for everything.
