Mrs. Jesse was my 3rd grade teacher in 1988. She has always been on my favorite teacher list. I am now a 3rd grade teacher in Union County. Pictures of her and I are displayed in my classroom. She was a big inspiration to me.

She was my 3rd grade teacher. Even though she gave me and Donna our first paddlin🤣 we couldn’t stop laughing she said if we didn’t stop she would give us another but we couldn’t stop, she was so mad at us she couldn’t paddle us again but she loved us and we loved her so much. I will miss her she was a caring and loving teacher. Fly high Mrs. Jessee you will definitely be missed.

I had Mrs. Jessee in Elementary school (I’m now 32) but she was my absolute favorite teacher. During the time that I had her, I wrote B97.5 and nominated her as teacher of the month and she won! The radio station came to the school and celebrated her with everyone there and it was so special! She was truly teacher of the year, every year for me but I was so thrilled they acknowledged her that month. I have always cherished the impact she made on me at an early age and will always hold a special place in my heart for her. Prayers for the family of this sweet lady that so many loved dearly.
