Author Jesse Scheie contacted us when she found the Project Alex Web site through a Google search for “shining stars.” She told us how touched she was by what we are doing to keep Alex’s memory alive. As a mother herself, she said that she could not imagine what it would be like to lose a child.
Jesse is the author of two books, Alex’s Shining Star (inspired by her own son Alex and her family) and I’m Still Shinin’ On. Our family was one of the inspirations for the book, I’m Still Shinin’ On.
Jesse lives in Minnesota with her husband and two children, Alex and Mercedes.
