In August 2016, Jessica, a slave of the sex-industry, at the age of only 36 years old took her life in room 5 of the brothel on 98 Hayarkon Street, Tel Aviv. She died where she had lived and had been abused by dozens of men every day for more than 15 years. Jessica is one of the hundreds of women who have died in prostitution in Israel in the last 5 years.
On the first anniversary of her death, August 18th, 2016, a memorial assembly was held at Kikar Atarim Square in Tel Aviv, in her memory and the memory of the victims of prostitution in Israel. It was well attended by the public and member of Knesset Shuli Mualem.
