Jessica Kivett

Sunday, February 9th, 2020

Jessica “Jessie or Jess” Lynne Kivett, age 31, passed away January 24, 2020 in Everett, WA.  She was born July 13, 1988 in Sedro-Woolley, Washington to Charles W. and Deborah “Debbie” (Westlund) Kivett.  Other than living in Ft. Leonard Wood from 1989 to 1994, she has lived in Burlington all her life.

Jessie enjoyed watching cooking shows and cooking new recipes, especially marinades for meat, and desserts.  She also liked watching mystery shows and crime dramas.  For a brief time, Jessica went to college to become a Paralegal.  She thought this would be a great way to help out other people and also be able to provide for her family.  Jessica had an awesome knack of working in sales and service.  She worked in management at Bath and Body Works and then at Christopher and Banks.  Her favorite part was meeting new people and helping them find that certain something that was just right for them.  Other things Jess liked was all kinds of music, Disney movies (with snuggle time with her children!), video games and family reunions.  She enjoyed seeing different places: Disneyland when she was playing clarinet in Band, and going on a cruise to Mexico with cousins.  She very much valued quality time with family and close friends.  She bowled on the same league with her mom for a few years.  She enjoyed couponing, thrift stores, and great bargains.  She aimed to live in frugal luxury.

Jessie was purposefully attentive and nurturing to each child’s best self, wanting each to shine in their own way, and to give each one her own personal “mommy” touch.  She very much loved being a mom.  There were lots of things she liked to do.  Those who knew her best, would say she was generous, creative, playful, loyal, friend, a bit of a firecracker and a good momma!

Jessie will be with us all in spirit, especially in her kids.  She will be greatly missed.

Jess is survived by her twin children, Madison Jade and Bryan Wesley Leon; parents, Charles and Deborah Kivett; siblings, Randi M. Kivett and Christopher W. and his wife, Patricia Kivett; grandmother, Sherry Westlund; great grandfather, Walt Sherman; cousins, aunts and uncles; three cats, Tigger, Bubba James and Sissy Sue.

She was preceded in death by her daughter, Georgia Aleyna Hope Leon in 2017; grandfather, Mel Westlund; great grandparents, Mona and Floyd Corrion, and Alice Sherman; cousin, Joshua Feebeck.

Graveside Services for Jessica will be held at 2:00, Saturday, February 15, 2020 at the Sedro-Woolley Union Cemetery with Pastor Nick Harris presiding, followed by a Celebration of Life Gathering at the American Legion Hall from 3:00 to 6:00 (pizza and soda provided, plus potluck.)  Share your memories of Jessica, sign the online guest register, and RSVP

    I’m sending you my deepest sympathies a Bless Wish that you will find peace and comfort knowing that your family was loved…..

    Here’s a little poem I found.

    “Our darling has gone to the angels above –
    Where there’s nothing but happiness, joy and love.
    Gone from this world so full of strife –
    Back to the God who gave her life.
    So let us not grieve or wish her back again –
    To go through the sorrows that come to all men.
    But rejoice that God chose our sweet flower for His own –
    And has taken her back to His Heavenly home.”

    God Bless, Tess Pederson

    I did not know Jessica personally, but the stories Chris, Mr kivett and my brother Richard have shared with me in the past allowed me a small glimpse into the wonderful and well loved person that Jessica was. I am saddened for the family but am hopefully that through raising her beautiful children and sharing those memories and stories will bring her closer to them and be forever in their hearts.

    Nathan and I will be attending the grave site and potluck to hear more memories and share in the joy of her life.

    I am absolutely heartbroken to hear this news. Jessica and my daughter Alicia, grew up together in the same elementary school and were the best of friends for many years. From the many adventures in Girl Scouts, to the over nights at either of our homes, to many many hours of playing Barbie’s. These 2 girls were inseparable. Jessica was guaranteed to wake up each weekend morning to a hot waffle waiting for her to devour, and maybe a 2nd one if she was still hungry.
    Later through the years, I would see Jess in the grocery store and she would catch me up on her life adventures and how her precious babies were doing. I loved to catch up with her. I will miss that girl! Big hugs and much Love sent to Debbie, Chuck, Randi, Chris and her precious babies, Bryan and Maddie.

    So saddened about Jessica, so young. Jessica was a student at BEHS where I worked, but I got to now her at Christopher and Banks. She always came up to me and we would chat, plus she liked to help me pick out an article of clothing she felt was best for me. She will be sadly missed. Rest In Peace Jessica.
