This Body Did It, Jess.

This Body Did It.

She also owns a family business with her husband: an artisan cheese shop and deli called Capeling and Co. She maintains a blog called After Iris. Jess has begun a blog, After Iris Reads Aloud, where she makes voice recordings of a favorite poem or meaningful piece of writing in the memory of a loved one.


  1. Incredibly powerful, Jess. What a clever idea.
    I feel at odds with every square inch of my body for what it did and how it let me down - so dismally and catastrophically.
    I think you're beautiful though. Every bit.

  2. I love the contrast. Black and white. Life and Death. Beautiful, Jess.

  3. All those shadows ... a fitting end to the November theme.

  4. Today I worried that my comment may be misunderstood. I meant "Yes." as in "I completely feel this piece."
