Jessica and Jake Woodruff are Parents of 5 kids. Megan, Evan, Casey, Allie, and Chelsea are their children and they are in the age between 8 and 24 years. Jessica and Jake Woodruff went to Oregon to celebrate Jessica’s 45th birthday from Yreka. When they were driving a giant redwood tree fell on their car.
Normally this area has thick tree cover. “We have trees everywhere. It’s in the middle of the redwoods. It’s just old-growth and we have no idea why the tree fell. It was Mother Nature.” Brandy Gonzalez, from the California Highway Patrol, said to SFGate.
However, Brandy considered this as a very unusual accident. “I’ve been in the department for 19 years and I’ve been in this area 12 to 13 years and it’s very unusual. We’ve had trees fall down and cars make contact, but this kind of incident is very unusual.” Said Brandy
Unfortunately, both Jessica and her 36-year-old husband Jake had to leave their souls and also their children missed their parents’ love after this incident. Now, these five children have a lifetime problem. They have missed the love, care, and affection of their parents, and also they have to face a lifetime of expenses of them alone.
“We are asking that anyone who can support them, please do so, as these children are facing the devastating reality of what was just ripped from their lives in a split second. Those of you who know this family, know how tight-knit they are, and their lives will forever be changed.” Wrote Amanda Maffei who is the organizer of GoFundMe.
Many people have been supported this family. GoFundMe is the foundation that supports these five kids and it exceeds $150,000 now.
“There is no getting around the devastation and trauma the loss of Jessica and Jake has brought, and as we can all imagine, there is a long road ahead, especially for the children who have been left behind” Amanda Added more.
Family member Emma Miravalle said that their younger siblings are immediately stepped up to raising by the two oldest children, from Jessica’s prior relationship.
Mother Nature has granted us everything even our lives. Sometimes she takes them back. We couldn’t blame her. Sometimes Jessica and Jake may be looking at his family from heaven. They also will never blame Nature.
