Jessie Rees Foundation


The Jessie Rees Foundation (JRF) is inspired by 12-year-old Jessica (Jessie) Joy Rees. Jessie, a beautiful, athletic, smart, and compassionate girl, bravely fought two brain tumors (DIPG) from March 3rd, 2011 to January 5th, 2012.

During Jessie’s 10-month, courageous fight against DIPG, her compassion shone through as she focused her attention on sending hope, joy, and love to other children fighting cancer. Jessie began sharing her message to “Never, Ever Give Up (NEGU)” by personally stuffing and delivering JoyJars, her 64 oz. plastic jars stuffed full of fun, age appropriate toys to over 3,000 courageous kids battling cancer.

The Jessie Rees Foundation’s mission is to fulfill Jessie’s wish by ensuring every child fighting cancer has the support and resources they need to NEVER, EVER GIVE UP! Since 2011, JRF has been able to reach over 90,000 courageous kids in all 50 states and in 28 countries under the guiding principle that they will care until there is a cure.

Every year 500,000 children are told they have cancer. Jessie’s JoyJars & NEGU message encourage these children and their families to remain positive and continue their fight.
