Jessica Kathryn Delashmit
Jessica K. Delashmit, 43, of Bourbon, MO, passed away at her home, surrounded by family, on Tuesday, July 28, 2020.
Jessica Kathryn Grey was born in Belvidere, IL, on June 4, 1977, to Lawrence O., Jr. and Ruth E. (Logan) Grey. She was raised in Madison, IL, but lived in various places because her family was always involved with The Salvation Army. Jessica met Jason at Camp Mihaska, where they were later married on May 2, 1998. They were blessed with two children, Brandon and Courtney. Jessica loved children and she was able to teach preschool for many years. She was very creative, had a beautiful voice and loved to sing. Above all, her faith and her family were most important to her. Throughout Jessica’s life, she always relied on her faith for strength and it became her rock during her illness. Jessica will be lovingly remembered and missed by her family and friends.
Jessica is survived by her husband, Jason Delashmit of Bourbon; two children, Brandon and Courtney Delashmit of Bourbon; her father, Lawrence Grey, Jr. of Alexandria, VA; her mother, Ruth E.
