Born Feb. 6, 1982, in Sedalia, she was the daughter of Robin Pummill and Jan Cornine Pummill, who survive of rural Houstonia. Jessica was raised on a farm in the Houstonia/Hughesville area and was a 2000 graduate of Northwest High School in Hughesville. On Feb. 8, 2003, at Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Emma, she married Russell T. Kreisel, who survives of the home. Jessica was an only child, biologically, but was blessed to have her cousins and they became her brothers and sisters.

Jessica loved photography, interior design, refinishing antique furniture, working with her flowers, mowing her yard, and tending to the many animals she and the kids had obtained through the years.

In addition to her parents, Robin and Jan, and her husband, Russ, she is survived by one son, Blaine Kreisel, and one daughter, Bevin Kreisel, both of the home; her grandparents, Helen Pummill, and Delmar, and Dorothy Cornine; her in-laws, Tom and Connie Kreisel of rural Houstonia; as well as her cousins, aunts and uncles.

She was preceded in death by her grandfather, Robert “Pete” Pummill.

Jessica loved and was loved dearly.
