Her nephew, Jerry Wells, considered her his second mother and often stayed with Jessie and Clarence while attending college.  Jessie loved to fish and often went fishing with her sister-in-law and Jerry.  She was a down to earth person with a great sense of humor and was a lot of fun to be around.  She touched the lives of a lot of people in a positive way and will be missed.
