Jessica Leigh Scott Obituary
Jessica Leigh Scott, of Las Cruces, died unexpectedly Friday, Oct. 21, 2011.
She was born Feb. 6, 1967, in Tularosa to Wesley Ketner and Viola Hudman. Jessica lived in Alamogordo until she attended New Mexico State University in Las Cruces for an associate's degree in nursing.
She later received her Bachelor of Science in nursing. Jessica worked in the mother baby unit of Memorial Medical Center for 15 years as well as helped start and manage the Sexual Assault Examiners Program in Las Cruces. Jessica also worked for the Gadsden Independent School District.
Those left to mourn her passing include her loving husband of 20 years, Todd Scott; two sons, Andrew and Campbell; her father, Wesley Ketner, and wife, Reese; her mother, Viola Martin, and husband, Harold; her parents-in-law Ron and Susan Scott; and her siblings Stephanie Beach, Tammy Woods and Harold "Bro" Martin Jr. Other survivors include her grandparents Jess and Cloatha Hudman, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins.
Jessica was an enlightening human being who was known for her charisma, wit and humor and was most commonly known as "the life of the party." She had the innate ability to sense when someone needed a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen or just a hug. Jessica loved to help those in need and touched many people's lives. Her heart was bigger than life. She will be missed by all of those who she came in contact with.
A memorial service was held Monday, Oct. 24, 2011, in Baca's Chapel of Prayer, 300 E. Boutz Road. Family and friends celebrated Jessica's life and shared her love following the memorial service.
