*Insert Mel note here*

Hi, I’m Jessica. I’m the BEST FRIEND! Melanie and I have been friends since high school. We are practically sisters so what she feels-I feel. I had the pleasure of being Jasper’s caretaker in 2017. It broke my heart that fall when Jasper was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes. I quickly tried to learn as much as possible about this disease so I could help Mama out. She is a single mother so I had to do something! Melanie is one of the strongest people I know alongside that little boy. They persevered and are learning new things everyday. I have been all over the board when it comes to careers but haven’t found my niche. When Melanie invited me to start Sugar Bug with her, I was more than happy to be a part of her passion. I love that little boy as if he were my own. We are excited to help out other type 1 families with laughter, tips and fun swag!
