Condolence: Mrs. Jesson, Cindy, Deana, and Mary Beth,
I am thinking of you this week and remembering Jennifer. When searching for this obit, I saw that Mr. Jesson passed last year and I am sorry to see that. My father, your Tennis Coach (Harry) also passed last year. I guess the two of them are up in Heaven playing their trombones now, and singing in that Heavenly choir (as my Dad always told me he would). I remember all of the Jesson girls from my time out at Hardscrabble and, of course, at Southside. Jennifer was a year older than I, and Deana a year younger. My Mother (Paula) was so upset when Mary Beth was supposed to be in her classroom (Bonneville) but then, jumped a few grades because she was so darn smart! (smile). Jennifer was one of the sweetest, kindest people I've known. She's gone too soon. Please tell her son I am thinking about him during this difficult time. And, if he needs to get away, my door is always open -- I am in Montana and the mountains here are very therapeutic. Kathy Flanders & Christie Dawson know how to reach me. Love you all. Always have. God bless.

Condolence From: Leigh Ann Cousins Fuller
Jennifer will always be fondly remembered by me for all the happy things we participated in. From a fraternity party double date to hosting my baby shower, to coming to my fathers art exhibit and many fun escapades in our younger years. She was graceful, beautiful and smart, a real lady. My thoughts are with you Deana, MB and Cindy.
