About Teressa:

Born in San Diego, California to Vice Admiral William and Monika French. Teressa was a high school sophomore at Covenant Life School, formerly attending The Rock Academy active in basketball and most improved player in both softball and soccer. As a military child, she moved frequently with her family across the United States and overseas, living in nine different locations. She loved to travel, meet people, and learn about various cultures. Her tenderness and innate motivation to reach out to people allowed her to touch the hearts of all those around her. She was an inspiration and ambassador of goodwill for God.

Teressa had a wonderful sense of humor, bringing smiles and laughter wherever she went. She loved being around family. She could fix relationships through words: she was a peacemaker. Her gentle heart and care for young people made her a “Pied Piper” of children. They flocked to her and loved her. To cherish her memory, she leaves behind on this earth to join her in heaven … her parents Bill & Monika, and her brother Tom. She also leaves behind countless family and friends. Teressa Rosalind French, 16, of Washington, DC entered heaven January 24, 2014.
