Marshall County investigators spent almost four hours on the scene trying to piece together what happened.

It was extremely foggy during the time of the crash, according to the county coroner. However, officials have not said if it was a contributing factor.

“Just how talented and amazing and kindhearted she was,” said Joyner.

He was at the scene for most of the morning trying to get information. Now, he is at a loss for what to do next.

“All we can do is just move on, the best way we can,” said Joyner.

Jessica also made several appearances on national talent shows.

“As far as I know she was the most amazing cousin. I am sorry she was a hard worker, and the last time I saw her was at the steakhouse,” Hunter Joyner said.

Several social media posts have been made in reaction to her sudden death.
