On May 18, 2023, Vilma Jagessar, an angel here on earth, departed our company temporarily as she joined the Lord’s presence in heaven.

As you might imagine, this has been a very difficult time for the family and loved ones. We know that many of you have have joined us in praying for this family for some time.  And we continue to pray for strength and faith for the beautiful Jagessar family.

Remember that for the faithful this isn’t goodbye forever.  Just goodbye for now.

If you’re unfamiliar with Vilma, she was a proud mother of three young children ages 12, 10, and 7 years old.  Unfortunately, Vilma (affectionately called “Jaggie” by her Springview Elementary coworkers) was diagnosed with Stage 4 Colon Cancer.  And while she valiantly fought the disease with numerous treatments including chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery, she ultimately succumbed to the disease last month.

Jagessar Family
Jagessar Family:  Vilma Jagessar with her husband and three children.

Vilma’s husband remained by her side as a full-time caretaker and therefore was unable to work during this time.  As a result, Vilma’s family setup a GoFundMe page to help raise funds to help alleviate the family’s financial burden.

The Miami Springs Community did its part to help the young family by donating to the GoFundMe Page and even raising funds with a Flock for Vilma campaign.  To everyone who donated their time and money, thank you!

In honor of Vilma’s beautiful life, there will be a Celebration of Life this Saturday, June 10th at 11:00 am at Christ Journey Church located at 624 Anastasia Avenue in Coral Gables.

Those interested in donating to the Jagessar family may still do so on their GoFundMe Page.

“In loving memory of a life well lived.”
