She lived in Ashland City, TN most of her life and graduated from Cheatham County Central High School. Jessie was a beautiful, loving mother, who would do anything in this world for her kids. She was also an amazing daughter, sister, aunt, niece and cousin and friend. Her smile radiated with happiness and her eyes sparkled with a kindness that not many people have. Even when she didn’t have much, she would give the shirt off her back to help a stranger.

The world will never be the same without Jessie, but we can find peace in the Angel that now watches over us. She will be missed dearly, but never forgotten.
