What is “Jessa’s Landing”?
Jessa Ann was my daughter. She died at age 27, after complications and infection related to her second lung transplant.
It is in her spirit that I try do good. One example is cleaning the Condado Lagoon.
You can find out facts about the Condado Lagoon itself on this website, however the Calle Marseilles entrance is special to me.
Cleaning the Condado Lagoon is a meditation and a dedication to my daughter, Jessa. We clean it, paint over any grafitti, provide and empty a trash can, and clean glass out of the water daily.
Mark Derho and Josh Ortiz paint Jessa’s Landing at the Condado Lagoon.
Cleaning the Condado Lagoon means painting over graffiti, and who the heck is “Pretty Ballads”? Clearly a menace to the community. Graffiti is not art, it is ugly and a crime. Graffiti will not be allowed to exist at Jessa’s Landing in the Condado Lagoon. As a crime, graffiti is the damage to property caused by: spraying, writing, drawing, marking a property without consent.
Were located between La Ventana al Mar Park and Condado Lagoon, at 18 Calle Marseilles. Walk or drive past the Comfort Inn (on your right) and veer-left at the lagoon, CONDADO TOURISM CENTER is the business on the left past the Ritz condominium.
