I was shocked when I heard of Tess's passing. She was a beautiful human being inside and out. While in school, she showed such talent and passion that I knew she would go very far in the beauty industry. We are all saddened by the news and send our condolences to her family.

My sadness is great at our family's loss.

to all who mourn her at this difficult time.
With Love
