Jessica Ingram passed away on Wednesday, April 18, 2018 at the Care Dimensions Hospice House, Lincoln. Jessica fell ill early in 2018 and was diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma. Despite being a scientist who studied cancer and receiving the best medical care, there was no stopping this aggressive cancer that failed to respond to treatment. In honor and in memory of Jess, the funds raised through this page have been used to set up a named lecture to further the mission she cared about so deeply. We will continue to build this fund, to not only support the Jessica Ingram Lecture in perpetuity, but also to be able to fund research in her area of interest, immunology and immunochemistry.

Born in Beverly on August 21, 1981, she was the daughter of Paul and Susan (Hooper) Ingram of Gloucester.

Jessica was a Class of 2000 graduate of Ipswich High School. She obtained her Bachelor's degree in 2004 from Haverford College, Pennsylvania, and attended Oxford University in her Junior year. Jessica completed her graduate work at the University of California San Francisco, earning her Doctoral Degree in Biochemistry. She later performed postdoctoral work at the Whitehead Institute (MIT) and made discoveries in immuno-oncology as an Instructor in Dana-Farber Cancer Institute's Department of Cancer Immunology and Virology.

Jess was known for her meticulous and thoughtful approach to science. She trained numerous students and postdocs, and was always available to talk about ideas or to help troubleshoot problems. She enjoyed going to seminars on a diverse range of topics, believing that a broad understanding of biology is the best foundation for creative inspiration. She developed an alpaca antibody platform for cancer immunology, and used protein engineering to devise novel applications for single-domain antibodies.

Jessica was also an outstanding writer and loved to travel the world, making it a goal to visit every continent. Like a true North Shore native, she loved the ocean and valued the beauty in her own backyard.

In addition to her parents Paul and Susan, she is survived by her sisters, Emma Ingram, Laura Ingram, Laura's daughter Giselle Ingram Ferreira; and her companion Hidde Ploegh.
