Jessica Marie wrote on a Gofundme Page, “. . . She needs all of our help as she was brutally attacked by her family dog on Thursday morning, resulting in life threatening injuries. Jessica has gone through two major surgeries thus far and is still on a ventilator and fighting to get better every day. She remains in critical condition, having suffered severe trauma to both legs,” says Jessica. “Doctors had no choice but to amputate the leg above the knee,” she goes on to report.
Jessica works at Brooksville’s historical Coney Island Restaurant and has been there for 14 years, according to her mother.
Calhoun has no medical insurance, so a Gofundme page has been established by the family to help with the overwhelming medical cost.
CORRECTION: 2/26/2018, 12:51 P.M. – The Citrus County Sheriff’s Office errantly reported the victim’s age as 20. According Larry Williams, Jessica Calhoun is actually 30-year-old.
