Jessi was born on January 23, 1987 to Ed and Anne (Sack) in Grand Island, Nebraska. The fourth of their four children, she was very special from her birth. Anne was in college to become a nurse, when Jessi became her father’s side kick. She received her education & graduated from at St. Paul Public School. She was a member of the American Legion Auxiliary and the Abate of Nebraska.
Jessi never met a stranger. Her kindness and sass made her one of a kind. She loved traveling with her family. Trips to Colorado, South Dakota, Wyoming, and Montana were her favorites. She kept herself busy with different art projects, riding her four-wheeler and taking care of her animals. She was a collector of many things. Her favorite things were her purses and her mobile stuffed zoo. She kept the family tradition of collecting nutcrackers. She loved her nieces and nephews more than anything. She will be remembered as a true “one of a kind” and there will never be another like her!
Those left to cherish her memory include her father, Ed; sister and brother-in-law, Lacey & Matt Bonner of Grand Island; brothers and sisters-in-law, Jerry & Connie Thompson of St. Paul, Andy & Stacy Thompson of Palmer, grandmother, Margaret Thompson of St. Paul; 11 nieces and nephews; numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Anne; infant sister, Hope; grandparents; and great-grandparents.
