Mary Hale Jessen, 78, of Lynchburg, passed away on Sunday, July 7, 2019 at Lynchburg General Hospital. She was the loving wife of the late Dr. Robert Bruce Jessen.

Born on May 21, 1941 in Albany, NY, she was the daughter of the late Page G. Mattice and the late Lucy Eva Hale Mattice. Mary was considered an Angel by her children. Everyone that ever met Mary can agree that she was a wonderful, nurturing, caring, intelligent, talented woman that found absolute joy in everything and everyone she met. She would encourage every one of her children and often (other children too) that she would take in. In Mary’s eyes, everything living was precious and deserved a shot of kind love and guidance.

Mary is survived by her children, Jeannette Woods and husband Rob, Robert Jessen, Jr. and wife Emilee, Dr. Scott Jessen and wife Missy, John Jessen, Thomas Jessen and wife Michelle, James Jessen, and Lucy Cheatham; twelve grandchildren, Ryan Woods, Becky Kramer, Bruce Jessen, Alex Jessen, Ana Jessen, Ella Jessen, Elizabeth Jessen, Katharine Jessen, Julianna Jessen, Isabella Cheatham, Ian Cheatham, and Ivy Cheatham; four great grandchildren, Judah Woods, Jovie Woods, Karson Kramer, and Maverick Kramer; brother, John Mattice; sister, Martha Strysko; and numerous other family members and friends.
