    I feel honored to have met and worked with Jessie in several rounds of rehab therapy. As I was teaching her ways to adaptive her life around her deficits she was also teaching me how to become a better therapist and person. She was absolutely “one of kind” lady. Jessie was strong-willed and determined but, yet funny and compassionate. I enjoyed her dry sense of humor and the smile she would provide me when I caught her off guard with a response she was not expecting. We would always try to find a ray of sunlight and complete her therapies in this location- she loved feeling the sun on her back. I continue to remember Jess each time I feel the warmth of sun on my back. She will forever hold a special place in my heart personally and professionally. Enjoy the sun rays forever☀️ With loving condolences to the family ? Jenny

    I miss our talks G’ma. I promise to wear my socks, keep the wind off my shoulders, and will do my best to teach Marlee to make your potato soup and scratch gravy. You were a fiesta gal and I can only hope to be half as spunky as you. I love you. Until we see you again…
