My deepest sympathies for your loss. I worked with Jessie in the Office of Inspector General for many years. Jessie was such a special person. No matter what was going on, she always had a smile on her face, always found time for kindness, and always left you with a smile on your face in return. Please know that she touched so many people with her positive and friendly attitude and that our office was a better place for her presence. I hope that the memories you have of Jessie may be a comfort to you during this difficult time.
