Julia Amy Hersam, 17, of Ocala, FL, passed away on 7/17/21 at 12:28 a.m.
Julia was born in Gainesville, FL to Rebecca and Michael Hersam on 8/24/2003. She graduated from Florida Virtual School (FLVS) in 2021 and was set to go to Culinary arts school in Orlando to get her degree and start her own restaurant! Before her death, she was working at KFC and enjoyed her job and co workers immensely. Julia was a hard worker and always excelled in school and whatever she did. She loved life and made everything more fun.
Julia is survived by her parents, Rebecca and Michael Hersam, her Brothers – Jacob, Tim, Ben and Josh, Nathan Smith and Nilo Alfonso; her sisters – Courtnie, Kimberly and Ashlee; her nephew Jae Hersam and her niece on the way Arebella Julia Alfonso and lots of extended family.
Julia was always sunshine and happiness in her life! She lived fun and silliness and enjoyed learning, growing and serving others. Julia was easy going and always a hoot and could make you laugh when you were sad and knew that life was too short to be mad at nothing. Julia loved the color green, the beach, taking care of and spending time with her nephew Jae and being with her family. Her family was her light and her life.
