Jessica Ingram passed away on Wednesday, April 18, 2018 at the Care Dimensions Hospice House, Lincoln. Jessica fell ill earlier this year and was diagnosed with cholangiocarcinoma. Despite being a scientist who studied cancer and receiving the best medical care, there was no stopping this aggressive cancer. In honor and in memory of Jess, the funds raised through this page will be used to set up a named lecture focused on immunology and immunochemistry to further the mission she cared about so deeply,.

Born in Beverly on August 21, 1981, she was the daughter of Paul and Susan (Hooper) Ingram of Gloucester.

Jessica was a Class of 2000 graduate of Ipswich High School. She obtained her Bachelor's degree in 2004 from Haverford College, Pennsylvania, and attended Oxford University in her Junior year. Jessica completed her graduate work at the University of California San Francisco, earning her Doctoral Degree in Biochemistry. She later performed postdoctoral work at the Whitehead Institute (MIT) and made discoveries in immuno-oncology as an Instructor in the Dana Farber Cancer Institute's Department of Cancer Immunology and Virology.
Jess was known for her meticulous and thoughtful approach to science. She trained numerous students and postdocs, and was always available to talk about ideas or to help troubleshoot problems. She enjoyed going to seminars on a diverse range of topics, believing that a broad understanding of biology is the best foundation for creative inspiration. She developed an alpaca antibody platform for cancer immunology, and used protein engineering to devise novel applications for single-domain antibodies.

Jessica was also an outstanding writer and loved to travel the world, making it a goal to visit every continent. Like a true North Shore native, she loved the ocean and valued the beauty in her own backyard.

In addition to her parents Paul and Susan, she is survived by her sisters, Emma Ingram, Laura Ingram, Laura's daughter Giselle Ingram Ferreira; and her companion Hidde Ploegh.
 
Dana-Farber provides expert, compassionate care to children and adults and is home to groundbreaking cancer discoveries. Since its founding in 1948, the Jimmy Fund has raised millions of dollars through thousands of community efforts to advance Dana-Farber's mission.
 
Thank you for supporting Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and the Jimmy Fund's mission to conquer cancer. All gifts to this Giving Page will support the lifesaving work being done every day at Dana-Farber.
