Jessica Ghawi Mother

Jessica was a victim of the ‘Dark Knight Rises’ shooting that occurred on July 20 in Colorado, and her mother spoke of Jessica during a special edition of ABC’s ’20/20′ on Friday. Watch the video and read all the details of her raw and candid conversation with Diane Sawyer.

Jessica Ghawi tragically lost her life during the Colorado theater shooting during a midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises on July 20.

Jessica’s mother told Diane Sawyer that her daughter was “very easy to fall in love with.”

“She was like a jolt of lighting. We would tease when she would come home for a visit, that she’d walk in the door, it was just automatic chaos because of the energy level that she brought into a room,” Sandy Phillips said on 20/20.

Jessica narrowly escaped a different shootout in a Toronto mall last month.

“She was very affected by watching the victims being brought out of that [Toronto] shooting, and realizing that several of them were close to her own age and realized that life was very fragile and she had an epiphany at that moment that it could happen to any of us at any time and instead of being afraid of that, she embraced life even more fully,” Sandy said.

Jessica, an aspiring sportscaster, was killed when 24-year-old James Holmes allegedly opened fired on innocent moviegoers — leaving 12 dead and at least 59 wounded.

Our deepest thoughts go out to Jessica’s family and friends at this time.

Watch the video below of Jessica’s mother talking with Diane Sawyer.
