Jessica Carolyn Pitera, of Highland, died on Saturday, February 19, at Huron Valley Hospital of complications of pneumonia. She was 13 years old. Born in Novi on August 19, 1997, she was the daughter of Robert and Shellie Pitera and the big sister to her brother Aaron. The family moved to Highland when she was 3, and Jessica grew up surrounded by loving family and friends.

Music and theater added to her joy and love of worshiping the Lord. In addition to her parents and brother, Jessica is survived by her grandparents, Larry (Judi) Pitera, Judy Burkhardt, and the late James and Carolyn Bartman; her aunts and uncles, Mike (Kari) Pitera, Joelle (Mike) Berry, Stacie Bartman, Cheryl (Jim) Strukel; and cousins Anthony and Alaina Pitera, Megan Berry, and Kara and Kaitlyn Strukel.
