Jessica "Panda" Mayse went missing the beginning of January 2023. Jessica was a very talented resin artist and had many friends all over the world.  Her friends were her soul family and they fought very hard to get Panda home.  Panda was found a couple days later.  We honor the very bright light she was and still is through every heart she touched.  Panda touched many hearts including ours. Her light will forever be a part of us here at JTF.  Pictures are from Panda's candlelight vigil 1/9/23.


Nick Salvagni

Nick Salvagni went missing December 2023.  Nick's dog was found in Jefferson County at the Stegosaurus Lot on December 2nd.  Nick's car was found in the same lot late January.  A large search effort took place March 2, 2024 and a pair of shoes were found, but nobody was certain they were Nick's.  A couple of days later surveillance video proved the shoes were Nick's. On March 6th Jefferson County Sheriff's met JTF to collect Nick's shoes.  They called in the Calvary and within hours Nick was found.

Nick's search brought a lot of the community out and after Nick was found several asked to volunteer further with JTF.  Overnight our case load and staff grew.  We owe Nick and his family so much and we are so grateful to have been involved.  We will forever carry Nick in our hearts forever.
