Obituary for Jessica Ann Taylor

Saint Albans Town – Jessica Ann Taylor, 49, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday morning, April 18, 2013 at the Northwestern Medical Center in St. Albans. Jessi was born on June 29, 1963 in St. Albans. She was a school-based clinician with Project SOAR, where she will be greatly missed by her students and co-workers. Her ultimate passion was helping children cope with trauma, and she earned her counseling licensure in the fall of 2012. Additionally, she held Associates, Bachelors, and Masters degrees. Prior to and during her Masters studies she was a dedicated stay-at-home Mom, raising her own children and having a profound impact on many other young people as they grew up. She will be best remembered by those who loved her for her kindness, generosity, strength, and sense of humor. Jessi is survived by: her children Sadie and Jacob Taylor of St. Albans and Hannah Bruyette and her husband Chad of Swanton and their children Kody and Gracie; sisters Mikayla Maskell and her husband Timothy of St. Albans and their children Cam and Owen, and Sarah Jane Pieri and her husband Kyle of Minneapolis, MN and their children Bailey (Jessi’s Goddaughter), Kirby, and Benjamin and his wife Katlin; her aunt, “the other member of the sisterhood”, Jane Powell and her children Alison Gardner and her husband Nate, Sam Fredette, Michele and Stephanie Powell; and her Uncle Fred and Aunt Des.
