Jessie Michelle Lyons, 38, of Jacksonville, FL, passed away July 22, 2020 at St. Vincent's Riverside Hospital due to an infection. She was born on January 31, 1982 in Daytona Beach, FL to Michael and Barbara Lyons.

Jessie’s most recent job was working for “Comfort Keepers” as a healthcare worker. She loved taking care of and assisting her clients with day to day activities. She also enjoyed listening to their stories and spending time with them. She also had a passion for printing, as many other of her family members did. She worked in production at several printing places, Allied Printing, Bindery of Jacksonville and Harte Hanks. She liked setting personal goals and competing against herself.

Jessie was a true animal lover. Animals of all kinds were naturally drawn to her and she to them. She would help any animal she came across that was in need. People were also drawn to her in this way. No matter day or time she would always be there to help a friend or lend an ear. What she was most proud of were her children. They meant the world to her. Jessie will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Jessie is survived by her father Michael, her mother Barbara, her daughter Kallie, her son Michael and her dog Roxy.

Barbara and family, I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful daughter and Mother. I will be praying for you and thinking of you during this difficult time. I am glad that Jessie is flying free, and will not suffer any more.
I always loved talking with Jessie and when the kids where younger, I felt like your family was
an extension of ours. I am so glad I will always have those memories.
I got to see Jessie a couple of months ago when she bought Michael over to our house. She came in and I enjoyed our visit so much! We caught up on each other’s lives and our kid’s lives. Leah also got to see and talk to her. It was a good visit, and I am so grateful for it.
Kallie and Michael, I can’t even imagine what you are going through. With God’s help, I know you will be able to get through this and move forward. Please let me know if I can help in any way.
Love and prayers for all! Lisa Andersen

Jessie and I spoke recently about the mountains. She was telling me how she soooooo wanted to go back to Boone, NC to see the mountains. I just wanted to share this beautiful picture I found of her. She looks so content and happy in this place. This is how I'd imagine heaven to look. ❤

My sweet sister/cousin "Jessie",
I miss you so so much! I remember us hugging several times and saying we loved each other at the hospital a few weeks prior. I would have never imagined it would be the last time. You had a heart of gold. You were the peacemaker! Always trying to put back together the broken pieces in strained relationships. I remember your little smile when you were a baby. The prettiest baby I had ever seen. You would jump up and down in your play pen with your arms stretched out to me so I would pick you up. My own real life baby doll.
I could tell you anything in the world and it was always safe with you. We had a special bond like no other. I wanted to say so many more things to you. I will miss our silly and sometimes deep conversations. I will miss talking smack too!
I know you were suffering more than I realized and I'm sorry you had to deal with those things on a daily basis. Nobody deserves that. Although I'm selfish in still wanting you here with me, I know there's a reason for everything. Tell everyone up there I miss them too and can't wait until we are all reunited again. Thank you for being such a big part of my life. I will never ever forget you. Love you always~❤ Aimee

Jessie you’ve been around ever since I can remember. You and Jamie upstairs playing and giggling. Your trips to your Grandmas. The birth of your children. The ups and the downs. You’ve always been there for one another. You’re not there anymore and I have no idea how everyone will adjust. I am thankful to know you are with Jesus and we will see you again one day.

My love and condolences to your beautiful family. They loved you so much.

Barb my prayers for you all. I am thankful for your faith. You are loved❤️🙏

Sweet Jessie, beautiful soul ... How incredibly sad to learn you’re no longer with us. Although we weren’t close in distance, you’ll always remain my loving, dear Niece. You fought the good fight and lived for your children. And you loved the oceans ... may you now be peacefully at rest in the loving arms of our loving Heavenly Father.
My prayers and sincerest sympathy for all your family and friends - you’ll forever be missed 🦋🙏❤️🙏🦋

My sweet baby girl. My only child.
You will remain in my heart forever.

There really is a special bond between a parent & child that can not be broken.
I am realising now that time really is short....and I long to speak with you just one more time....and although I wish.... I realize God had other plans.

Plans for no more suffering...
Plans for no more pain...
Plans for no more sickness...
Plans to be with your heavenly father...

I hope you know how much we love you and you will be missed by so many.
Don't worry bout' the home front...
We got this.
R.I.P. dear daughter.

The Lyons Family,
I'm truly sorry for the loss of your sweet wonderful daughter. I remember when I first met Jessie. It felt like I had known her since we was young. I will truly miss her. She was always there when I needed her and same for me. I would do anything for her. She always made me laugh when I was upset. She forever hold a special place in my heart. I will never forget when I ran out of gas on the highway and she came out at like 10:30pm to rescue me. Rest In Peace Jessie. I love and miss you so much..
