The crash, which happened in New South Wales on 26 December, also killed her parents, sister and the other driver.
Jessica had been fighting for life after being involved in the same horrific vehicle crash on Boxing Day that killed her family.
There has been no official confirmation from the NSW Police or hospital that the actress has died.
Despite reports that the 29-year-old Home And Away actress had passed away, a St George Hospital spokesperson has said that Jessica remains in a 'critical condition'.
Police continue to investigate the crash, which also claimed the life of 50-year-old Craig Whitall, who was driving the other auto and died instantly. Whitehall had previously received a nine-year driving ban and racked up at least 10 convictions for driving while disqualified.
The 29-year-old reportedly had her life support switched off by her family, however the following morning St George's Hospital, Sydney confirmed to Metro.co.uk that she remains in a critical condition. All three family members were farewelled at a funeral on Wednesday.
News.com.au report that Mr. Ponticello told the service: "The irony of the tragedy is that Lars was such a careful driver".
Her parents, Lars and Vivian, were killed in the crash.
"Whenever he'd ask to drive somewhere I'd suggest a time for an average driver and add on some additional time for the "Lars factor" because he was so careful".
Police believe the crash occurred when a large vehicle crossed the centre line and crashed head on with the Falkholt family's auto.
"Their lives ending on a highway makes absolutely no sense".
Ponticello also spoke about the love between his sister and brother in law, "They are together and always will be".
She is best known for her recurring role as Hope Morrison in the series "Home and Away". The movie will release in 2018.
"Rest in Peace Jess, you will be missed so very much".
