Jessica Marie DeMont

Jessica Marie DeMont passed away October 5, 2021 at the age of 44 following a 39 year battle with brain cancer.

Jessica was born in Houston, Texas on June 5, 1977. She was blessed with beautiful blue eyes and eyelashes that would be envied by all the girls. As a young child, Jessica was already strong willed and showed a determination to experience everything life would offer.  She was also a giggler whose infectious laugh, engaging smile and twinkling eyes lit up many rooms and the corridors of MD Anderson Hospital.

Jessica’s battle with serious medical issues in recent years showed her courage in facing challenges. Despite many obstacles, Jessica continued to enjoy the wonderful experiences her mother strived to provide.  The fishing trip last July sponsored by Kids Unlimited was the last of many memorable outings that enriched her life.

Jessica was the beloved daughter of Jennifer Minter DeMont and Glen Alan DeMont. She is also survived by her brother Glen Alan DeMont Jr.  She was preceded in death by her brother Shannon Glen DeMont who was there to guide Jessica joyously through heavens gates. She is now reunited with her grandparents:  Johnie and James Minter and Elizabeth & Vernon DeMont; her aunt Janice Minter and her cousin Amanda Bujnoch. She will also be dearly missed by her aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

Jessica’s Celebration of Life will be, Friday, October 29, 2021 at 7:00PM, Flatonia United Methodist Church, 403 E. North Main (Hwy 90) Flatonia, TX. Reception following the service at the church.

  4. Jessica, how can I ever think of you not being here with your mom. It seemed like you would always be here with us. You seemed ageless, never really changing. You were my first and only blood niece and you will always hold a special place in my heart. I have never known someone so young that had such determination to make the best of her lot in life. You have always been such a strong survivor, right up until you released your hold on your earthly life and walked away with Jesus,Shannon and Amanda. How I wish I could see you now, your beautiful china doll skin and gorgeous blue eyes surrounded by the longest black eyelashes and a quick twinkle of mischief in your eyes. I can see you dancing and laughing your hardy laugh in that ever so perfect body you have longed to have. Well now you have it and I know you are doing wonderful things up there with all the family. Not too many of us left down here on earth, so it will only be the blink of an eye before we are all together again I thank God for sharing you with us and teaching everyone you met to enjoy what you have in life no matter what it holds for you because tomorrow is never promised, but today should count to the fullest. I will miss our games we played and the love you showed to all of us, even when at times we must have been pretty tough to love when we didn’t show the patience that we should have had. You will be greatly missed by those that knew you and to those that didn’t get an opportunity to know you, your love, your courage, your strength and your desire for life, it’s a shame they missed out on the life’s lessons knowing you had to offer. You are forever I my heart.

    • Jessica! (: I know that that your eternal smile is looking down at us all not missing a thing. I am happy for you 🥲 because you are in a better place obviously, but it is still all to natural it seems for us to be sad in missing you. 😭 It was always easy to laugh with you as you were always ready to share your contagious laughter and smile. 😊 Thank you for the many moments of joy that you genuinely created with me and everyone you knew. I miss teasing you and getting caught off guard by your comebacks 😘. I may not have reminded you enough while you were here but by far Jessica you are one of the best persons I’ve ever had the opportunity to share time with and I know you know that. In fifty years or so when I see you again I will say “Well it took a while to catch up to you” and you will say how it was but the blink of an eye. I will understand only then. Love you forever. See you soon 💙

  5. Jessica,
    It’s so easy to hear your laugh when I think of you. Your fiery determination inspired everyone you encountered. I’ll miss those sarcastic jokes of yours that always put a smile on my face! Fly high sweet cousin.
    Aunt Jenny,
    Jessica definitely had your strength, courage, and steadfastness. You were her angel and guiding light here on earth, and there is no doubt that she is your angel now. All my love.

  8. Its hard for me to think I am never going to see you again. You were always here or Mandy was at your house. You were just like another daughter to us. We will always remember the good times we had with your parents out on your boat. There are times I think I hear your giggles. Rest in peace my strong kid. WE love you!!!!!

  9. Sweet sweet Jessica. I will certainly miss her beautiful smiling face and giggles at our Kids Unlimited events! I am so very grateful we were able to bring back the Offshore Fishing Adventure this year and for her to have such a fun experience going out on that awesome boat, for her last KU event.

    Jessica – you will remain in our hearts and memories forever. I know your precious Mom is going to be lost without you, but she is strong and we know you are her Angel in heaven looking out for her now. And rest assured, she is a permanent part of our KU family and we will all do our best to keep her spirits up and to continue coming to events in your honour. Love you Jessica (and Jenny) forever.

  10. Jessica you will be missed. I will miss your infectious laugh and sweet personality. We had so much fun when we went on the boat ride in Kemah. It will not be the same without you at the Kids Unlimited ranch.

    My heart and prayers are with your mom, Jenny, and your family. Jenny you raised a wonderful light hearted woman.

  11. What a privilege to have known this sweet angel, Jessica, and the DeMont family. Our next-door neighbors there on Lost Ridge Circle. You welcomed us to Texas in the summer of ‘96, and have enriched our lives as “forever friends” over the many years. Thank you for that. And, thank you for sharing Jessica with us for these brief fleeting moments of life.

    So many memories. Thank you, Glen, for those countless moments on the water, for sharing the stories and the struggles of life, seems like we often never even untied the boat! And, Jenny, thank you for your example of unconditional love as a Super-Mom, guardian, and best friend to sweet Jessica. There is a special crown waiting for you in heaven.

    And, Glen Alan, my buddy…thank you for always making Jessica laugh! Seems you knew exactly what to say or do. Those moments are frozen in time for me…such great memories of you saying something funny – or doing something goofy…making your sister laugh & smile. When I close my eyes, in the silence, I can hear Jessica laughing. Thank you, Glen Alan.

    I will tell the story
    of your beautiful life;
    The laughter and the tears
    and the passage of time…

    With much love & adoration…❤️💔
