Jessie, I am traveling to Seattle soon for a joyous occasion, but there is sadness in my heart that my dear sister will not be there. Miss you so much.
Missing you every day my dear sister.
Oh Jessie...I just learned that you passed away. I was just thinking about you and tried to contact you...you are obviously missed by many, many people. You were a bright spot in my life for sure. Your legacy lives on, my friend. Until we meet again...xo
You called out, Kassie My Lou, she answered Jessie My Ann. We always just said "hi honey". How I miss my Jessie. And she was not just my Jessie, she was a whole lot of people's special Jessie
My Dear Jessie,
How can this be! I miss you! I need you here with me.I expect you over weekends. You take me to visit Dad. You have left a big,big hole in my heart. Who will watch after me,when I need to be at VMH!
Jessie you are truly a good soul and will always be remembered with great fondness. Rest in Peace my O. R. 8 roommate......
Jessie was one of the first people I trained under early in my career in the OR. Her scrub expertise and knowledge helped influence me and there are a few things still I do in my own practice that I picked up from her. It was an honor to have worked and known such a great woman. Thank you for everything Jessie. Rest in peace.
Jess what a blessing to read the comments of all your friends. Just think my whole life I was blessed with what they have discovered, all the things we went through and you shined with grace and love. Love you, miss you, Rudy
Dearest Jessie, Tomorrow we will celebrate you and send you on your way...still so overwhelming, you should be joining us for lunch. The OR is changed, so quiet, subdued and sad...you were truly and deeply loved and there is an empty spot that won't be filled. Thankfully we can share our Jessie stories, and your memories surround us and help us get through our days. We miss that laugh and quick wit and we nurses loved working with you. For me I always knew that between the two of us we would get it right in spite of our memory deficits...and then we could laugh... You are in my heart, your family is in my prayers and I think of you and your daddy walking those doggies...and I smile. Thank you Jessie. I love you. Joy
I feel honored to have known and worked together with Jessie Larson. She and I connected from the first day we met.That connection grew into a friendship for which I will always be grateful. I was always fascinated with her perspective on things. Her spirit reminded me a lot of my Mom's, who also left this world too soon for my liking. Thank You Jessie for gracing us with your presence.We are blessed to have known you. We all miss you!
Jessie I miss you so much sister! We had grown so close in the last couple of years. You are always in my heart. I know all your dogs were there to greet you with many wiggles!
When I originally moved here- 3,000 miles away from my family and starting a new job...You helped me to feel accepted and at home. You had so much fire in you...I loved it so much and will miss it dearly. We always had great little chats in the locker room.
you will be missed and never forgotten.
For Jessie's family, please know how loved she was at VM. Joyous, kind, funny, a great lady. My days were always brighter when I worked with Jess. I miss her.
Dear my love Jessie,
It has been 5 years since you and I worked togather almost everyday. it was very pleasant, joyful and cheerful.
I still can not believe that you are not around me. I still hear your voice every morning, said that "Good Morning mamasue, I loveyou mamasue" I can't even tell you how much I missed you and how sad I am even you in better place, peaceful place.
Jessie, every day I worked with you was a pleasure and you will be missed terribly. You graced Virginia Mason with your exceptional personality, caring attitude and strong work ethic. Your distinguished laugh will always ring clearly in my mind as a reminder of what a great person you were. To a wonderful woman who will never be forgotten. Rest peacefully. Julie Brigden
I worked with Jessie at VM ever since she started as a scrub tech. I believe Matthias was one of her early mentors, and what a kick it was to work with both of them. Jessie remembered some mishap we had in one of the first cases she scrubbed with me and always remembered I was calm and patient. How could I not be with someone who worked so hard and sincerely? She was such a joy--great loud and happy laugh, serious and attentive in the OR, full of life and stories of her home, dogs and garden. I cannot believe I will never hear her laugh again. I will think of her with fondness always. My deepest sympathy to her family who I hope will be strengthened by wonderful memories shared with Jesse.
Jessie, I will miss your strength and you common sense. I admired your bravery to start a new career and to work so hard to do your very best and beyond. Rest special lady. I loved working with you. Edie Holbrook
I can't believe it that I have to write an entry regarding an amazing woman that graced our neighborhood of 4th Avenue S in Burien. You are so missed Ms. Jessie and TJ. Thanks to the family, some of her personal-household items have been given to help the families at Hope Place.
I began working with Jess right when she got out of tech school. She became my personal scrub...cause nobody wanted to work with the newbie! That newbie became one of the best scrubs I have EVER worked with in 15 years of practice. In about 6 months. Totally unflappable, and we've been thru some intense stuff. Some techs you have to remind to pay attention, some will give you what you ask for, and a very few will, in the thick of it slap the instrument that you need into your hand while you're holding your hand up in space, dumbly, wondering to yourself what you need. Jessie was one of those. This is not an exaggeration, I experienced this. She became a dear friend, there were weeks that I spent more waking time with her than my wife. Sorely missed. She did a helluva lot of good in this world, a lot of which is recognized by just a few people. RIP
Jessie you were so loved here at Virginia Mason. I will miss you and that one of a kind laugh. I know you up there in heaven with your doggies and having a grand old time!!!Elizabeth Ristine

I will miss your laugh and hugs. Your support through my hard times helped me so. You were one of a kind my friend and you will be missed.

You are already missed, you will be missed for many weeks to come. Your laugh will haunt our memories and we will smile.

Jessie, Your "friends of Bill" group will be at your funeral to say good-bye, but will carry you in our hearts forever. I think of you often - can't see how you leaving should change that.
What happened? So Schocked by your passing!
So shocked and sad to hear of your passing. It was a pleasure to work with you. Jan Stone
I miss you with my whole being and wish with my all my heart you did not have to go so soon. I loved and love you forever so much. Your sister, Betty
You were a joy to know, fun and wise. Stunned by your departure.
I think of you often and run free with your beloved dog. Free at last.
