Journal entry by Miranda Overland

What an evening!! 

Thank you to everyone who came out to support Jesseca and our family. Getting to see you all and thank you in person mean’s the world to us.

For those of you who don’t know, both I (Miranda) as well as Jesseca worked at Famous Dave’s in Forest Lake. I started there when I was just 16. I remember applying to so many different places, until one day my dad and I were driving by and he said, “why don’t you work at Dave’s? It’s close to home and great food”. 

Well, I listened to my father’s advice and it became my first job as well as my favorite. And just as younger sisters do, Jesseca followed in my foot steps and got a job there as well when she turned 16. Of course my parents loved coming in to eat AND be able to see both daughters working! 

When I moved to Duluth for college, I transferred to the Famous Dave’s in Canal Park. Famous Dave’s has been a huge part of my life, from the coworkers to the lessons I’ve learned. So, when Bob (manager at Famous Dave’s), asked if he could hold a fundraiser for Jesseca, we said HELL YES! 

Again, thank you to all who made this happen. The volunteers, the sponsors, donators, friends, coaches, teachers, etc etc. YOU made this happen. And YOU have helped this community come together and support one another. We love you all ❤️

P.S there is a video of the evening on my Facebook page !
