Wisconsin Rapids - Jessica Lee Haase, age 39, of Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin, passed away on Monday, March 5, 2018 at Mayo Hospital in Rochester, MN after a courageous battle with Leukemia.

Funeral services for Jessica will be held at 11:00 AM on Tuesday, March 13, 2018 at Our Lady Queen of Heaven Catholic Church in Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin. Rev. Joseph Valentine will officiate the service. The family will greet relatives and friends on Monday, March 12, 2018 from 4:00 - 7:00 PM at Ritchay Funeral Home in Wisconsin Rapids and again Tuesday morning at the church from 10:00 - 11:00 AM. Burial will take place at a later date.

Jessie was born on August 9, 1978 in Stevens Point, Wisconsin to Robert and Jane (Neukirchen) Draper. She was employed for the last 17 years in the IT Department at the University of Wisconsin- Stevens Point, most recently as the Manager of Client Services and Technical Support. Jessica was loved deeply by her family and friends. Her kindness, her smile, laugh and her silliness brightened our lives. These will be forever etched in the hearts and minds of those who loved her. Jessie's greatest gift was her tenacity. The definition of tenacity includes words like determination, strength of purpose, boundless energy, patience, endurance, stamina and we cannot forget her stubbornness. All these encompass the essence of Jessie's personality.

Jessie's love for her family was endless and you could hear the love in her voice when she spoke of her son, Jackson. Jessie fought a strong and brave battle against Leukemia. We will always wonder why she was taken from us at such a young age. Life will be very difficult without her, yet we are very grateful for the time we did get to share with her.

Jessie is survived by her husband Kevin Haase, son Jackson Robert Haase, parents Robert and Jane Draper, sister Cassie (Joshua) Nordstrum, mother-in-law Carolyn Haase, father-in-law John (Terri) Haase, sisters-in-law Valinda (Dan) Butson and Amanda (Ryan) Greeno. She is further survived by other relatives and friends.

She is preceded in death by an infant son Clayton Russell Haase, infant brother Russell Scott Draper and her grandparents.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial will be established in Jessie's name at a later date.

Ritchay Funeral Home in Wisconsin Rapids is assisting the family with arrangements.
