Jessica's message stands so tall and so much above all the others we have heard. It really did ..Thank you, Jessica, for making it 93 days in a dark place and living to tell the tale. Many that we serve and support could hear her passionate story. Her way of bringing us back to the place, time and moment(s) was so very real and visible in our minds as she spoke.

Our audience of 100 senior leaders and their spouses were mesmerized. They could not stop talking about the emotional impact it had on them. Her story gave them pause to reflect on all they have and to cherish it, and not forget the fragility that may lie beneath it

Can I tell you, we absolutely loved Jessica. She was such an amazing speaker who held the entire audience in her hand. Aside from the professional she was, she too was very personable. We all felt such a connection with her and were extremely proud for Lamar State College-Orange to bring in such a dynamic speaker who also is an amazing humanitarian.
The event was a true success! Jessica and Erik are lovely and everyone fell in love with them.
We were so impressed by the perseverance and faith you demonstrated in overcoming such a significant ordeal. You have an important message that carries hope and grace from your heart that is an inspiration and needs to be heard across this earth.
The presentation was fantastic. Jess (and Erik) were very engaging and their story is nothing short of amazing.
Thank you for participating as a guest speaker at our Navy SEAL Tribute event. I have never seen a room filled with hundreds of people who were so simply put, spellbound. Your dedication and love for each other, your courage to survive given such impossible odds and your strength to share your story with such dignity and grace was inspirational to all who attended.
Jessica Buchanan was truly an awesome guest speaker for our annual fundraising luncheon this year! She touched the hearts of all in attendance and showed through faith and God-inspired determination that you can, in fact, defy Impossible Odds. Our guests are still talking about her presentation and many have graciously given to support the important nonprofit work we do in our community.

Jessica was an EXCELLENT guest speaker for our spouses breakfast event at the Broadmoor. I was fortunate to meet with her personally before the event and she shared so much about her life, both before and after such a harrowing experience. She graciously allowed questions from the audience, and everyone I spoke to afterwards was very moved by her story and her ability to relive that nightmare.
