In loving memory 

Candyce Jean Kesler

Candyce Jean Kesler, better known as Candy or Mom, was the co-founder of NEW BEGINNINGS REALTY and PROPERTY MANAGEMENT and the mother of Jenny Jones. She was the ray of sunshine in the office, sitting in the front right when people walked into the business. With a hug and a "hey sunshine," she was sure to make everyone feel at home. Candy grew up in Terre Haute, Indiana and Erie, Pennsylvania. Before helping Jenny open the business, she worked at Raytheon Corporation as a Supply Chain Manager. Although she loved her career in Supply Chain Management, her proudest professional accomplishment was opening NEW BEGINNINGS REALTY and PROPERTY MANAGEMENT with the one she was most proud of, her daughter, Jenny. She is certainly going to be missed, but she made an impact on so many people, that she will live on through them.
