Ramona Jill Jesser was called into the arms of our loving Father on Friday, January 30th, 2015 with her family by her side. Our beautiful angel is at peace, and is now healed after courageously fighting a long battle against breast cancer. Jill was born on April 7th, 1959 in Goldsboro, North Carolina to Raymond and Faye Massengill. Her spirit and legacy is carried on by her husband Rod; three daughters Jenny, Megan (her husband Chad) and Katie; mother Faye; father and mother-in-law Jim and Patty; sister-in-law Debbi; nieces and nephews Kristi (her husband Scott), Bobby and Shelly; great niece Bailey; and extended family and friends. Jill has worked as a dental assistant for the past twenty years. She had a spiritual passion for life, her family and giving to others. She enjoyed cooking, gardening, sports, and traveling. God’s beautiful sunrises and sunsets gave her days of tranquility and peace. Forever remembered will be her kind heart, unwavering faith and genuine love. Rest in paradise.
