Lauren Kresse Obituary

Lauren Kresse was born on May 4, 1979 in South Miami, Florida. Her family relocated to Little Rock, Arkansas for three years before returning to Florida and settling in Boca Raton. Lauren attended Spanish River Community High School and joined the United States Air Force upon graduation. After nearly five years of active duty, Lauren returned home and began her career with the Boca Raton Police Services Department.

Lauren was best known for her bold personality and contagious smile. She deeply loved her family and friends, and was a wonderful mother to her children, her greatest joy. Lauren was always there, with a camera in hand, to celebrate and capture moments that would become forever memories. She was always up for an adventure, whether it was a trip, getting together with friends or through the pages of a good book. Lauren was caring, honest and straightforward, which made her a mentor to others both personally and professionally. She was the one you could always count on.

On January 18, 2024, Lauren’s valiant fight against cancer ended, surrounded by family. Lauren is survived by Jimmy Jalil, Jr. (husband), Alexys Jalil (step-daughter), Cattleya Jalil (daughter), Elias Jalil (son), Cecilia Monge (mother), Tom and Sandy Kresse (father and step-mother), Caitlin Kresse Fessler (sister), Kirstin Kresse-Jovanovski (sister), Megan Kresse (sister), Colin Kresse (brother) and Kurtis Firehock (step-brother).
