    Despite going through numerous dialysis treatments and her body getting weak, Jessa held on to her dream of being a teacher and continued to prepare. She was first admitted to the hospital in June 2018 and was planning to undergo kidney transplant after taking LET.

    When the results of LET were announced by the Professional Regulations Commission (PRC) on December 1, Jessa was among the over 83,000 who passed the exam. In a touching moment, Jessa who was already bed ridden looked up to a tarpaulin with a message of congratulations for finally getting her license.

    Jessa, the eldest daughter of Angelo Ganigan, a farmer in La Union was described by her parents as an epitome of perseverance. Despite her body going weak, she held onto her dream and continued to attend review classes.

    With Jessa's passing, her family will never forget how she inspired them and many to not let poverty and even illness get in the way of their dreams. "Her body may have given up but her spirit fought until the end," Jessa's family shared.

    Jessa's story is a strong reminder of the power of hope and perseverance. Rest in peace, Teacher Jessa.
