Family, friends share stories of who Jayme Closs is

Barron County (WQOW) – One of the best things we can do to bring Jayme home is continue to talk about her, share photos about her and learn about who she is.

Some of Closs’ family was at a press conference on Tuesday. Jayme’s aunt said, “Jayme is the sweetest little girl, she wouldn’t hurt a soul.”

Superintendent of the Barron School District Diane Tremblay echoed that sentiment saying Jayme is a loyal friend who loves to dance. Jayme is also a runner on the Riverview Middle School cross country team.

Perhaps the person who is most telling of Jayme’s personality is Jayme herself. Her superintendent had this story to share: “A teacher just recently shared this with me about Jayme. Jayme wrote on one of her assignments, in response to the question, what would you do if you were given a million dollars? She said feed the hungry and give the rest to the poor.”

Jayme’s friend Ashlea said she knows the entire Closs family well. Her parents worked with Jayme’s parents. She said she doesn’t understand why anyone would harm them.

“I don’t think that there was anybody that would of been against them because they were such nice people, and I don’t think anybody would want to hurt them,” Ashlea said.

Ashlea also said whoever has her should give her back because there’s a lot of people who really love her and don’t want to see anything bad happen to her.

Again, if you see Jayme, or have any helpful information, you are asked to contact the Barron County Sheriff’s Department at 715-537-3106.
