Jessica “Jess” Fajardo, age 30, of Odessa, passed from this life on Sunday, April 12, 2020. She was born Friday, January 5, 1990 in Odessa to Fidel and Elsa (Franco) Fajardo.

She is preceded in death by her grandparents, Jesus and Emeteria Franco and Simon Fajardo and Isaura Brito.

Those left to cherish her love and memory are her parents Fidel and Elsa Fajardo; sister Nohemi and husband Luis Suarez; brothers Fidel Jr, Alonso and Pedro Fajardo, numerous nieces and nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles and many friends that love her greatly and will miss her dearly.

Jess was a wonderful daughter, sister, cousin, niece and friend and was loved by many. She always put others first and always liked to make people laugh. She attended Permian High School where she was a member of the band. She graduated PHS in 2008 then attended Odessa College where she studied phlebotomy. She loved playing DDR and Pump It Up at the arcade. She loved playing video games, watching anime, trying out new restaurants, baking and playing with her beloved nieces and nephews.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic we are following state and local guidelines by limiting visitations and services to 10 people. To eliminate large groups from gathering, we will be conducting a pass-by visitation on Wednesday, April 15, 2020 from 3-5 PM. Our staff will direct you to pull into the parking lot, lining up one vehicle behind the other. When your vehicle reaches the chapel doors under the carport, you will exit your vehicle and enter the chapel to view. Staff will take your name for the guestbook as well as a balloon that will be placed in the chapel for the service so although you may not be there in person, family will see you are with them in spirit.

Funeral services will be held Thursday, April 16, 2020 at 2 PM at Odessa Funeral Home. Because of the 10 person limit, we will be livestreaming the service on Odessa Funeral Home’s Facebook page.

Jess touched a lot of lives and we’d like to allow as many friends as possible to come by to pay respects. We ask that you be courteous and considerate to others in line behind you and follow the directions you are given by our associates.

You were such a big part of my life growing up. My time with you in this world has greatly influenced the person I am today. I saw you nearly every day and you treated me like your own little brother. At times when I felt I had no friends I knew I’d still have you to talk to or hang out with and just forget about the troublesome things in life. At every birthday party, you were there. At every family gathering, you were there. Your presence will be missed by all of us. The cake nor the food will ever taste the same without you around. It’s hard imagining a world without you and I don’t think this feeling will ever feel real to me. I never expected you’d be gone so soon... too soon... I love you and I miss you. Losing you is like losing an older sister and I think all your cousins, nephews, and nieces feel the same. Rest In Peace Jess. I couldn’t forget you if I wanted to. ❤️

I knew Jess from Dr. Madhu's office like others here. She always made me laugh and smile when I had to have blood drawn. I can't believe she is gone and my prayers are with her family. I ask God's blessings and comfort for them and will miss her humor and smiling face and hope the family knows how much she helped those of us that went to that office and hated needles but had a little bit of a better time when she was involved and took such good care of us.

God Bless.

Jessica, where do I even begin? So many great memories yet not enough. I feel as if life had only began. We are only 30 we still have a full life to live an entire world to see! Doesn’t feel right not fair to have you gone so soon on this adventure we call life. You should still be here my trips down to Odessa will never be the same!

In my family I always felt much older then all the other cousins it was so nice to have KC and you my age. Even better that you two were girls like me and we could play together. Although we all grew up separately I still enjoyed my trips down there to see you two. Even if just for a quick minute. I wanted you to know I tried I wanted you to feel my love you were apart of my team in the crazy family!

The day I found out you had left it was only minutes after your heart had stopped. I ran to my room and cried and whispered over and over come back Jessica come back. May be God would give you another chance, But nothing so I stayed there for a few hours and just cried. May be you were ready to go. Call me selfish but I wanted you here so for now I’ll continue to be jealous of the Angels who get to be with you.

I want you to know how loved you are and how missed you will always be! I will continue to honor you and your life! Love you cousin till we meet again!

Love Sara!

Dear Fidel and Elsa, and all of Jessica's family and friends,
In your great sadness, you are also recalling all the joy that Jessica has brought you in her life. The video shows many reminders of this joy. Her life was well-lived and she loved all of you. She carries all that love into eternity and will love each of you forever. May the Risen Lord bring you comfort and the strength of Hope in the everlasting joy we will all share with Jessica when we join her.
With prayers and gratitude for my time with you at St. Mary's School in Odessa. Love, Sr. Marguerite DC

Nows the perfect time to play Boyz II Men edition of “Yesterday”— change my mind! I am going to miss the everything of you. The casual unplanned but planned meet ups to play at K’s, or going out to eat (seems like forever ago but I still remember Cheddars), your witty posts, memes and comments. Memories of the times I spent with Maria and you doing Hood stuff (remember that time you guys shoe polished my car??!! Wouldn’t come out to save anyone’s life!haha!!) wouldn’t trade for it for the world but I’d give it all back for another day with you. We will see you again, this ain’t goodbye it’s c u l8tr.

I knew Jessica from Dr Madhu's office. She was the best phlebotomist in my book. She always had a smile on her face and a kind word. She knew how to make you laugh and feel better in the time it took her to draw your blood. She was a caring person. She took great care in making sure she did not hurt you. She had a great big wonderful heart and both me and my husband will miss her very much!!

Jess was so sweet, kind and gentle. I could spend lots of time talking with her during and after blood draws. Gosh she was smart. And she always knew what to say to brighten your day. Never, ever in my life would I ever expect to be posting a memory about her for this reason. Oh Jess, what a treasure you were as a person, as a phlebotomist. A true credit and bright spot to the human race. I am sincerely going to miss our chats. You were fun and intelligent to talk with. Wise beyond your years but with that youthful bubbly personality. Rest In Peace my friend.
