On the day of August 5, 1978, in the small town of Taylor, Texas, the late Evelyn Faye Tolliver and the late Matthew Tolliver were blessed with their third baby girl. This gift from God was given the name, Jessica Faye Tolliver.

Jessica grew up as Jennifer, and Winifred’s little sister and Jeanette and Angela’s big sister, yes, she was the in the middle, often displaying the middle child syndrome. The girls grew up loving and caring for each other’s…always covering each other back. They did everything together.  Jessica attended the public schools of Elgin and graduated from EISD Phoenix School. She was blessed with a strong Christian foundation, leaning, and understanding the Ten Commandments, which led her to accept Christ at an early age.  Jessica attended church with her family, including her cousins, as they participated in various activities of the church, so did Jessica, from singing in the youth choir, being an usher and Sunday School.  Jessica joined Mount Moriah Baptist Church and was baptized under the leadership of the late Reverend L.

Jessica met Levester Milligan and they had three girls.
