"Jane Love" is the nickname given to an unidentified Hurricane Katrina victim discovered in 2005.

She is buried next to John Mercy, another victim of Hurricane Katrina.


"Jane Love" was found between the slabs where two houses used to stand south of LeMoyne Boulevard off Acosta Street, a week after Hurricane Katrina made landfall. She was buried in Machpelah Cemetery in Pascagoula, Mississippi in February 2006. Local businesses and the city donated the coffins and flowers.
