I remember when I started working at flix brewhouse mama J'Lisa was my trainer and I instantly knew she was such a sweet and caring women and she was the one who introduced me and brought me into the flix employee family, and I didn't have much friends at that time and it was amazing having her apart of my memories at flix I will never forget the night out at blazing saddles. So much love to mama J'Lisa

My beautiful best friend. You were taken to soon. Although it was short. I am grateful to have been blessed with your beautiful spirit. I gained alot when I gained you as a friend. During the pandemic we became like sisters and shared everything. We made a bond so tight, a bond for life. I will continue to do my part as your best friend and keep your memory alive for all who love and adore you. I love you lady! Always

JLisa was such a bomb girlfriend to my cousin Daniel. It was an honor to have shared a few moments with her and my cousin when they would be getting off of work together. She had w beautiful light around her people gravitated to her because of her fun and bubbly personality. Rest up Babygirl we'll see you again RIP JLisa🕊❤
