Jessie grew up in Kamloops BC and took a trip to Las Vegas in 2005 where she met a new boyfriend and was soon engaged and living in a million dollar mansion. Jessie’s family became concerned when they had not heard from her for a while as they were in regular contact with her and finally contacted her boyfriend who said she had left him. This was in April 2007. The family desperately tried to locate their daughter and hired a private detective who discovered that Jessie had been forced into the escort service and had been beat up very badly at one point. Since Jessie’s disappearance her mother Glendene has been working very hard to let the public know the dangers of human trafficking and modern day slavery, which is what Jessie was caught up in. Jessie’s family hope to one day find Jessie and bring her home.
