I remember a young lady whose smile was contagious, who was an absolute joy to coach. Always alert, quick and eager to learn with a genuine servants heart. Every team I ever coached needed a Jessie. It was with great sadness that I learned of her accident and passing. Know that you as a family are in my prayers. Coach Massey

I am so so sorry for your loss of your beautiful daughter.

Lucas Shelley left a message on December 29, 2020:
I never knew Jessie or Carly personally, but I had the privilege of sharing many classes with them and could easily tell they were nice, caring, wonderful people. I’m so terribly sorry for this tragedy and I wish I took the time to get to know them when I could. We had a young girl tragically pass away after an accident at our intersection on Lucas Road and they leave flowers at the stop sign once a month. It really breaks my heart, and if there is anything more I can do just let me know. I know that they will be very well taken care of with God by their side.

Stevie left a message on December 29, 2020:
We meet so few people like Jessie and should count ourselves fortunate when we do. She was a genuinely nice person who made every room a little brighter, every gathering a little more fun. The world is a lesser place for her having left it.
Shelia and Corey Rogers left a message on December 29, 2020:
Jessie was truly a light in our lives. We looked forward to her daily visits where she'd come through our backdoor yelling "I'm in your house, eating your food". She spent countless hours with our goats, horses and chickens giving each one unconditional love and care. Whether we were fishing, unloading the hay trailer or cleaning out a horse stall, she made each minute fun and filled with laughter. We referred to Jessie as our griece (granddaughter/niece) and she called us her graunt and gruncle. We will forever be grateful for the day she and her family moved next door and shared their lives with us. Rest in light and love Jessie and give Strider a pat from us. ❤️
