OUR FOREVER INSPIRATION

The Jessie Rees Foundation was, and always will be, inspired by one courageous and compassionate 12 year old little girl.  Her name, Jessica Joy Rees, better known as “Jessie”.   Jessie was a faith-filled, beautiful, athletic, caring and loving girl who courageously fought cancer (DIPG) from March 3, 2011 to January 5, 2012.  She loved her family very much and her puppy Mr. Moe. She created JoyJars® and was the first one to coin the term “NEGU®”, which was her motto and message to everyone.   Jessie had one “wish”, which is the mission of her foundation.

    BE A VOLUNTEER

    YPN members are dedicated to helping at events, participating in local fundraisers, and contributing to volunteer projects at the JoyFactory. As one of the  YPN pillars of success, the importance of giving back is just one of the important staple in the way we connect and engage with like minded young professionals.

    CORPORATE GIVING

    In an effort to grow corporate engagement in Orange County, CA, YPN members are given resources to encourage their employers to engage in socially responsible activities, become event sponsors, offer creative team building opportunities as well as other ways to impact the lives of kids fighting cancer.

    COMMUNITY FUNDRAISING

    As a group, YPN creates ways to engage our local Orange County, CA community to advance the mission of the Jessie Rees Foundation by creating opportunities to give through unique and engaging fundraisers.  YPN members partner with local restaurants, organizations, and businesses to create give back opportunities to raise money to encourage kids fighting cancer.
