Former Wife Of Aaron Schaffhausen Remarried, Pregnant
A mother whose three daughters were murdered by their father in northwestern Wisconsin has remarried and is expecting a new child. Jessica Peterson, formerly Jessica Schaffhausen, is also still working to honor 11-year-old Amara, 8-year-old Sophie and 5-year-old Cecilia, her daughters who were killed by their father in 2012. Aaron Schaffhausen is serving life in prison for the crime. But Jessica has remarried and is expecting a child.
In a recent interview with KSTP, Jessica Peterson says she misses her girls a lot and will always carry the pain of their loss. But, Peterson says she’s trying to live her life in a way that would make the girls proud.
Peterson and the River Falls community have raised nearly $250,000 so far for the Tri-Angels Playground in memory of the slain girls.
Peterson is also seven months pregnant and told KSTP that she will always be a little sad and a little happy at the same time.
