The Peterborough community is mourning after learning of the deaths of well-known entrepreneur Jessica “Jess” Dalliday (nee Patterson) and her newborn daughter.
The owner and CEO of Pilates on Demand, Jess passed away in hospital on Tuesday (April 6) following a complication that led to the passing of her newborn daughter Angeline last Thursday (April 1).
Jess leaves behind her husband Michael and their two-year-old daughter Rachel.
Rosalea Pearl, a close friend who also worked with Jess when she was a client of the Innovation Cluster, shared the tragic news on Facebook.
It is with extreme devastation and sadness that I have to share this fundraiser for the Dalliday family while they go…
A GoFundMe campaign has been set up at gofundme.com/f/support-for-the-dallidays to support Michael and Rachel, raising over $76,000 in four hours after it was created. (Update: as of April 7, $167,993 has been raised for the Dalliday family).
