Jessica Rogers was killed yesterday morning on I-20 while driving from Stephenville to Abilene where she attended Hardin Simmons University. Troopers say Rogers was westbound on I-20, east of Abilene at around 7:45 a.m. yesterday, and there was a semi rig ahead of her. According to troopers, the truck driver slowed down because of traffic, and Rogers' Camaro drove into the back of that truck.
Jessica was less than a month from celebrating her 21st birthday.
Jessica was a two-time all state volleyball player and graduated from Henrietta High in 2010. At Hardin Simmons, she made the American Southwest Conference All Academic Honor Roll.
Her services will be at 2 p.m. Sunday in the Henrietta High School gym, and is open to the public. Visitation for family and friends is tomorrow night from 6 to 8 at Davis Funeral Home in Henrietta.
