Artist statement:

The fire represents the power of the holy spirit.

Jessie was released from a life sentence by way of medical release in May of 2020. You can read more about PA’s Medical Release process here, what we really need is Compassionate release. There is nothing compassionate about the amount of paperwork and proof you need to explain to the PA Department of Corrections that you are at the end of your life.
