Life is so Unpredictable

Last Saturday Evening, as everyone in the office starts to get busy, one shocking story saddened the whole team, a team-mate informed us that Jessa Joy Domingo already passed away. Are you serious? Everyone asked after Beth informed us about what happened. Although nobody will crack a joke about death, everyone still can’t accept what happened. Jessa was just 21, a young mother of a 2 year old girl named Angel  died a day before Mothers Day.

She was killed by her own boyfriend last May 12,2007. Possible causes of death were already determined. Local Police Forensic Examiner in San Rafael Bulacan reported that aside from the stab wounds a post-mortem examination found that Jessa had suffered facial and head injuries.

This soft spoken young lady died with 16 stab wounds allover her body. A couple of days before she died, she updated her Friendster Blog with this heart breaking farewell message.

So unpredictable

I’ve always known my life is set to be unpredictable and unconventional. I’m 21 and so many things have already happened in my life – things I would never imagine even in my wildest dreams. I guess a big part of all these coming into being is because I’m such a risk-taker. I know what I want and I do all that I can to get it, experience it, taste it. that trait sometimes leaves me with heartaches, pain, tears.. but most important of all, it leaves me with no uncertainties.. I can peacefully move on with a content heart knowing that I did all I can, even if the ending wasn’t very happy, and I would have no what if’s lingering in my heart.. life is really so short to waste on fears, to waste time on making sure the path one will tread on is smooth and friendly.. nothing is certain in this world.. the bad times don’t always end up with bad outcomes.. they sometimes lead to happy endings.. and the bad times don’t last.. and at the end of them all, what counts is the person we’ve become after the trial, the lesson we’ve learned and the strength we have gained..

-=Jessa Joy Domingo=-  October 8,1985 – May 12,2007

We will miss you Jessa,  May you rest in Peace.

    hi melo. i received a text message from an old college classmate saying that our former co-org mate, jessa joy domingo died already. at first, i dont know what to say except that she’s too young to die. i googled her and found your blog and read the rest of her story, or at least a glimpse of her story before she died. i have always harbored this idea that as i grow older, death comes closer starting with the death of teachers, friends and eventually relatives and dearly loved ones. this is really an example of the saying that “life’s too short”. i hope you could give me more updates on jessa so that i may be able to spread the news to those who knew her also. thanks so much!

  • I am saddened by her fate. My condolences to her family and her little Angel. A mother don’t deserve to die that way. Was the suspect arrested?

  • kalungkot naman to :)
    alam kanya nya na that would be her last update ng friendster nya?

    sometimes life aint fair. I never had the chance to get close to her but she was always there smiling even if an asshole was on the other line. One of the very few that never lost their cool. I wish I could have done a few things differently that way I could have known her more but now that she is gone I will have to content myself with melo and the rest… damn.

    Maybe you can start a “How will you punish Jessa’s Ex” thread or something?

    Melo, there are plans for a web page memorial for her, will I count you in?

  • Hey Will, Finally my boss checked my blog…. Yup there were discussions of putting up a memorial website for Jessa… hmmm maybe

    http://www.JUSTICEFORJESSAJOYDOMINGO.com

    Yup count me in… If a domain and webhost will be available… I’ll be weaving her website for free….

  • Hello Buddy HaRL,

    Yup…. all of her officemates are planning to help her family to speed up the process and make sure the guy will be held responsible for this murder…. please keep in touch and watch out for future posts…

  • buddy harl

    i am an org mate of jessa from UP and was truly saddened and enraged by the incident… it was too much, too soon… she was one of my closest friends and was her buddy during her application in our org… sadly i know the guy but was never that close with him… honestly, i never liked the guy… i always believed that he wasnt good for my buddy but never expected that he would be this “bad”… we lost contact when they started their relationship…

    we havent heard any news from her for three yrs and then a text message from my other buddy (her batchmate) from las vegas texted me of what happened and ask me to confirm the news… then the news was confirmed and as if i just crashed…

    i was a sad day for all of us who had in one point of our lives felt the presence of my buddy jessa (as i call her)… it was shocking… and the manner of her death was unforgivable… nobody deserves to die that way…

    she was laid down in her final resting place last thurs… sadly wasnt able to make it but was there wed night to visit her wake…it was hard to see my buddy in that state and for someone who is close, knows the person behind, and has an idea of what happened, it was hard not to imagine what may have transpired during the crime… it was hard to accept…

    thanks melo for posting this for others to know and at least have a say of what happened to my buddy… it helps us who were very close to know that many people cares…

    i will support whatever cause for the speedy justice of her untimely death…and share anything to support any efforts to the memorial of my buddy…

    again melo thank you!
