xx NASCAR Joins in Search for Missing Jennifer Kesse
« Reply #15 on: Mar 20th, 2006, 5:29pm »

ORLANDO, Fla. (Crime Library) — NASCAR fans will see something a little different today at the Atlanta Motor Speedway's Nextel Cup Golden Corral 500: the face of Jennifer Kesse, the 24-year-old Orlando woman missing since Jan. 24.

A picture of Kesse and the address of a Web site dedicated to finding her will adorn the decklid (truck) of Nextel Cup driver Jeremy Mayfield's No. 19 red Dodge charger.

The 500-mile NASCAR race was originally set to run Sunday but torrential rains forced a delay of the start of the race until 11:00 a.m. ET Monday. The race is being televised on FX.

The car's owner, Ray Evernham, graduated from Raritan High School in Barnegat, N.J. with Jennifer's mother, Joyce Kesse. Recently, their graduating class held a 30-year reunion. Although neither Evernham nor Joyce Kesse attended the reunion, word soon reached Evernham that the daughter of his high school classmate had disappeared.

Evernham contacted the Kesses and offered to put a picture of Jennifer on the decklid of his No. 19 car.
"I'm very loyal to my friends in New Jersey," Evernham recently told reporters. "When someone I went to high school with asks for help, I'm going to do what I can to get the word out. Hopefully, someone will see the decal on our race car and provide information that can help solve this case."

Jennifer Kesse was born in New Jersey and spent the first three years of her life in the Garden State
Although police have received nearly 500 tips on a special hotline since Jennifer disappeared, detectives admit they have little to go on.

One promising lead has been an FBI-enhanced video of a "person of interest." The indistinct footage was shot at the apartment complex where Jennifer's car was discovered two days after she disappeared. That complex, called Huntington on the Green, near the intersection of South Texas Avenue and Americana Boulevard in Orlando, is less than a mile from Jennifer's condominium.
According to police, the person in the video passed in front of the security camera at about the same time Jennifer's car, a black, 2004 four-door Chevrolet Malibu was parked at the apartment complex.

Detectives want to know if the person in the video saw who drove Jennifer's car into the apartment complex parking lot hours after she vanished.

"It's unfortunately the only piece of evidence that we have," Jennifer's father, Drew Kesse, said Monday. "Having nothing else to go on, we'd like to talk to that person and say, did you see anything? Did you see the car pull in? Did it go by you as it pulled in?"

According to Kesse, from the area of the complex where the video was shot, the person could have seen Jennifer's car as it pulled into the parking lot. "He or she could have possibly had to stop and let the car go by or just noticed the car go by," Kesse said.

Police do not think it was Jennifer who parked the car.

"Based on our investigation and the facts we have...we're fairly confident that she was not the last person to drive the car," Orlando police homicide Detective Rich Ring told Crime Library Monday.

Jennifer's parents have been doing everything they can think of to keep the story of their daughter's disappearance on people's minds. Last weekend they organized a health screening and blood drive across the street from where Jennifer's car was found. Two weekends before that, they sponsored a child ID drive and issued nearly 300 laminated photo identifications for children. The Kesses also frequently stand at crowded street intersections holding up 3-foot-by-5-foot signs bearing pictures of Jennifer, her car, the person of interest, and the address of the Jennifer Kesse Web site.

"This is still an extremely active case," Kesse said. Two homicide detectives are assigned full-time to the investigation, he said. "We have their best detectives, 25 years and 31 years on the force. They fully expect to find out what has happened to our daughter."

Kesse said the special tip line is still active, with anywhere from three to 10 tips coming in each day.

Anyone with information about Jennifer Kesse's disappearance is asked to call 1-800-423-8477 or visit www.jenniferkesse.com.

xx New reward for Kesse offered
« Reply #16 on: Apr 2nd, 2006, 11:51am »

ORLANDO -- The family of Jennifer Kesse is offering a new $10,000 reward for information leading to the missing Orlando woman or to a man described as a "person of interest" in her disappearance.

The family is putting up the money and has its own cell phone for tips, said Kesse's father, Drew Kesse. The number is 407-722-2162. It is unrelated to Crimeline, which is accepting tips at 1-800-423-8477 and is offering a separate $15,000 reward.

Kesse, 24, was reported missing by her parents in late January after she did not show up at work. Days later, her car was found not far from her condominium near the Mall at Millenia. Police in early February released a video showing a man they called a "person of interest" walking near where the car was found.

Susan Jacobson, Pedro Ruz Gutierrez and Greg Miller of the Sentinel staff contributed to this report. Information from The Associated Press also was used.

xx The Search For Jennifer
« Reply #17 on: May 19th, 2006, 07:06am »


Article by Channel 13 News

It's been nearly four months since Jennifer Kesse disappeared. As the search continues, family and friends are preparing to celebrate the missing woman's birthday.

Kesse vanished from her Orlando condo on January 23rd. She turns 25 Saturday.

In honor of her birthday, Jennifer's parents are encouraging people to celebrate life Saturday by giving blood at their local blood banks.

At the time of her disappearance, Kesse worked for a company owned by timeshare mogul David Siegel.

Last month, Siegel put up $250,000 for information leading to Kesse's safe return. That reward expires this Wednesday.

If you have any information about the whereabouts of Jennifer Kesse, you're asked to call CrimeLine at 1-800-423-TIPS.

xx Kesse's Parents Still Receiving Leads On Her Disap
« Reply #19 on: Sep 29th, 2006, 12:47pm »

ORLANDO, Fla. -- Jennifer Kesse's parents visited WESH 2 News on Wednesday to let the public know that the case of their missing daughter is still very much alive eight months after her disappearance.

Kesse disappeared on Jan. 24 from her condominium near the Mall of Millenia and her parents have not stopped searching for her.

"It's been a long time," her father, Drew Kesse, said. "We want the public to really understand that the case is very, very much alive and really very hot."

Pictures of Kesse, a University of Central Florida graduate, are everywhere around the campus. Her father said they are still receiving leads every day.

"Quality, we're looking for a little bit of quality of a lead," he said. "But we are still keeping awareness out there to make people pick the phone up. We continue to ask people, 'Don't think that your call may be too little or something. You think (what) you know may be too little. Make the call, and let the authorities decide on that.'"

Kesse's mother, Joyce, said they receive tips through their post office box, a family tip line and CrimeLine, as well as directly from the police.

She said they still do not know who the person in the image taken from surveillance video shot outside of Jennifer Kesse's apartment is and that it could be a female.

"They've not actually come out and said that it's male. They've not said it's a female," Joyce Kesse said. "Unfortunately, that person's face was hidden by the fencepost."

But, the Kesses said they have not given up hope.

"Realistically, what we hope is that, even after eight months, if you take a look at those (surveillance) pictures, if it was someone that you know, you'd be able to say right off hand, 'That's such-and-such,'" Drew Kesse said. "We know it is probably the hardest thing in the world for someone to pick the phone up and call in something about a friend, a relative, but you know, we're talking about our daughter's life and we hope that they look past that."

"We just don't understand how someone could know something and not make a phone call," Joyce Kesse said.

The Kesses said they have not watched the news concerning the disappearance of Trenton Duckett, but that they are aware of it through friends and the Internet.

"Our heart breaks for that dad," Joyce Kesse said.

The Kesses said they hold onto a lot of faith and prayer every day.

"Every single day, every minute of every day, because that's all we have, and miracles happen every day," Joyce Kesse said.

Jennifer Kesse is 5 foot 8 inches, weighs 135 pounds and has sandy blonde hair. There is still a $15,000 reward in the case.

Anyone with any information in the case is urged to call CrimeLine at 800-423-TIPS.

xx Kesse family to mark day with prayer
« Reply #20 on: Jan 24th, 2007, 07:25am »

Orlando -- Today marks a full year since 24-year-old Jennifer Kesse disappeared from her Orlando condominium and failed to show up for work. She has not been seen or heard from since.

"Don't call it an anniversary," says her mother, Joyce Kesse of Bradenton. "To us, an anniversary is something happy, and there is nothing happy about marking a year without answers."

Joyce Kesse and her husband, Drew, will spend the day in Orlando to thank volunteers and to remind the public that they are still hoping someone with information about their daughter's disappearance will come forward.

They will join Jennifer's friends and former University of Central Florida sorority sisters from 7:30 to 9 a.m. at South John Young Parkway and Conroy Road/Americana Boulevard -- the same intersection where they carried placards and passed out fliers for months after Jennifer went missing.

The First Baptist Church of Orlando, 3000 S. John Young Parkway, will open a chapel from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. for those who want to pray for Jennifer. From 5 to 5:30 p.m., the Kesse family will hold a service there to thank supporters and address the community.

xx New video in Jennifer Kesse case
« Reply #21 on: May 17th, 2007, 8:03pm »

By John A. Cutter | Senior Editor/Online News

Orlando police today for the first time identified a mysterious person previously shown in surveillance video as the suspect in the disappearance of Jennifer Kesse almost 16 months ago.

The suspect in video released this afternoon is shown parking Kesse's car next to a pool at an apartment complex not far from Kesse's condo near the Mall at Millenia. The suspect is the same person identified in other surveillance video as "a person of interest" shown widely not long after her disappearance.

Until today, however, police did not release the fact that a person shown walking along a street not far from where Kesse car was found was the same person who parked her car at the complex.

"We now know Jennifer was taken by someone and she did not want to go," said Drew Kesse, her father.

Kesse also said time-share mogul David Seigel, whose company employed Jennifer, plans to offer a $1 million reward for her safe return, but only for a short time.

Orlando Police Chief Michael McCoy defended the withholding of the video, which has been in police possession since not long after the Jan. 24, 2006 disappearance. Detectives routinely withhold some information to use against suspects.

xx Kesse's family in Tallahassee today
« Reply #22 on: Sep 14th, 2007, 8:23pm »

Tallahassee, Florida - The family of Jennifer Kesse, the Gaither High graduate who has been missing more than a year now, have been invited to a special ceremony at the Capitol.

The family of Jennifer Kesse will be visiting with state senators today and attending a “Missing Persons Day ” ceremony.

Jennifer has been missing since January 2006, when she was expected to go into work and never showed up. Kesse had just bought a new condo in Orlando and that is where police believe she was last seen. Her car was found about a mile from her condo. Investigators have also since released surveillance video of someone they say could be a suspect in the case.

Jennifer's family tells 10 News that after the ceremony this morning, they will meet with senators and representatives to try and get a bill sponsored. The bill helps coordinate efforts between different agencies when it comes to helping to solve "missing persons" cases.

xx Man Sought In Threatening Phone Calls To Kesse Fam
« Reply #23 on: Nov 3rd, 2007, 8:51pm »

A warrant has been issued for a Central Florida man police believe is behind threatening phone calls to the father of a missing Orlando woman.

Jennifer Kesse disappeared from her Orlando apartment complex more than a year ago.

Her father, Drew Kesse, said he and his wife have been targeted by someone who's making threatening calls to his Bradenton home.

Bradenton police believe the suspect is Tyler Green, 25, of Clermont.

Police said they were able to show through phone records that Green made four harassing calls to the Kesse residence, and even threatened the Kesse's other child.

Kesse said despite the phone calls, his family is not intimidated.
