    ANNIE HESS recounts the tragic events after the murder of her oldest son, Christopher in March 2007. During that time in her life, she learned to depend more on God for direction and guidance for her life. Seven years after the murder, she is still telling her story.

    Annie Hess was born on March 21, 1960 in Ashland, MS. She is the middle child of seven siblings. She grew up in Ashland, Mississippi with her siblings, grandmother, cousins, and her favorite aunt Corine until she moved to Memphis, TN in 1969 where she reconnected with her mother.

    Annie Hess is a Senior Claims Representative with Tennessee Farmers Mutual Insurance Company in Bartlett, TN where she has been employed for the last eighteen years. She has been married to her husband Carl, the love of her life for seventeen years. They grew up around one another as teenagers but did not connect until the early nineties.

    She enjoys spending time with her family especially her grandson Christopher, who is now two years old. She enjoys reading, relaxing, and socializing with her family and friends.


    She now lives in Cordova, TN with her loving family and attends Christ Fellowship Church.

    She wants this story told not only for her healing but for all families who have struggled through similar experience.

    Annie Hess has been writing her story in journal format since her son Christopher was murdered in hopes that her story will not only help her family heal and forgive but will help others do the same. This is her platform for getting her story told.
