Jessica Ghawi was a victim of “The Dark Knight Rises” shooting in Aurora, Colorado. Sources say she was an aspiring NHL/sports journalist, and other than the information she has provided on her prolific Twitter and Tumblr accounts, the young woman’s personal life remains private. The Source’s heart goes out to all of the victims and their families who must suffer the passing of a loved one.
However, the story of Jessica Ghawi is unique because of the events which took place before her tragic passing. Only a few weeks prior, she was present at Toronto’s Eaton Centre shooting, where numerous lives were taken in a similarly terrifying shooting. Her Tumblr recounts her ‘gut feeling’ to leave the food court with her food to get air, instead of staying to eat; she says this might have saved her life. You can view her Tumblr post here.
Jessica also tweeted right up until the beginning of the premier of “The Dark Knight Rises;” her tweets, which were humorous and full of excitement, can be viewed here.
As more information arises, The Source will respectfully report the details.
