jessica's obituary

Jessica Wilson

Jessica Raylene Wilson, 28, died Monday, September 20, 2010, from injuries sustained in a pedestrian/vehicle accident in Provo, Utah. 

Jessica was born Nov. 9, 1981, in Rexburg, the daughter of Darla (Muir) and Everett Parks Wilson, Jr.

She attended Madison district schools and was a member of the 2000 Madison High School graduating class. She served an LDS Mission to the Baltics, after which she attended Brigham Young University in Provo, receiving her B.S. degree in social work August 2009. Jessica became a licensed social service worker for the state of Utah in November 2009. She was employed by the Wasatch Mental Health in December 2009 and worked there until her death.

Jessica enjoyed helping people, an excerpt from her journal dated September 30, 2007, reads: "I'm gonna be a social worker! Woo-hoo! Do you know why? Because I am a teacher & I love to help people - it brings me joy."

Jessica was an inspiration to everyone who came in contact with her. She never prejudged anyone always being accepted on their own merits. She was a talented artist, an avid reader, loved to play sports with friends and was a runner. Jessica completed several marathons, Ragnar relay races and was a member of the ATK Run Club. She also loved to cook and would make new desserts for friends every weekend. 
She was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and was a teacher in Primary, Relief Society, and currently a gospel doctrine teacher.

She is survived by her parents of Rexburg, Idaho; two grandmothers, Eloise Muir of Rexburg and Leanora K. Wilson, of Clearfield, Utah; four sisters, Genevieve R. Wilson of Draper, Utah, Crystal V. Brantner (Russell) of Tremonton Utah, Amber L. Kent (Daniel) of Casa Grande, Ariz., and Stacy R. Wilson of Ogden, Utah; four brothers, Everett P. Wilson III (Jessica J. Weeks) of Ammon, Michael C. Wilson (Estee Forbush) of Logan, Utah, Jeremiah C. Wilson of Sandy, Utah, and James P. Wilson of Layton; three nephews and six nieces.

Funeral services will be held at noon Saturday, Sept. 25, at the Stonebridge LDS Chapel with Bishop Kirk Widdison officiating. The family will receive friends Friday from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at Flamm Funeral Home and again from 10:30 to 11:45 a.m. at the church prior to services. Interment will be in the Rexburg Cemetery.

woman hit by car, killed on byu campus

PROVO --  A woman was hit by a car and was killed Sunday night on Brigham Young University campus.

Police say Jessica Wilson, 28, and a friend were crossing North Campus Drive between 500 and 600 East near the bell tower around 8 p.m. Sunday when they were struck by a car driving west.

"A 27-year-old male got distracted and didn't see them and hit them both," said BYU police Lt. Arnold Lemmon.

Lemmon said the man was driving a 2008 Nissan Altima in the inside westbound lane. Two witnesses at the scene said the man had a green light, Lemmon said, but police are still investigating the incident. He said alcohol and drugs are not factors in the accident. The sun had gone down at the time of the accident, but Lemmon said there was still some ambient light.

Lemmon said Wilson suffered head trauma and was taken to Utah Valley Regional Medical Center within minutes, where she was later pronounced dead. The second woman, whose name has not been released, was also transported to the hospital with a possible compound fracture to her leg.

"She is in critical condition awaiting multiple surgeries," he said.

The woman is a friend of Wilson who was visiting from out of the country, Lemmon said. Although she is still in critical condition, she is expected to survive.

Wilson's family said the friend is from Estonia, where Wilson served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She has been in the country for a few weeks and was to return home in October.

Everett Wilson, Jessica Wilson's father, said Wilson worked as a social worker at Wasatch Mental Health after graduating from BYU in August 2009.

"She really loved her job," he said.

Everett Wilson said his daughter enjoyed helping people at Wasatch and wanted to get a master's degree someday, but she wanted to get the degree online so that she would not have to leave her job.

The family said Wilson loved to help others, and they provided an excerpt from her journal from when she entered the social work program.

"I'm gonna be a social worker! Woohoo!" she wrote. "Do you know why? Because I am a teacher, and I love to help people -- it brings me joy."

Darla Wilson, Jessica Wilson's mother, said her daughter's love for others was genuine. Jessica Wilson loved life, and she tried to help everybody love life, her mother said.

Jessica Wilson took karate, debate and was a member of Future Farmers of America when she was young -- mostly to meet others, her mother said. She did not try to be the center of attention, but she loved people and naturally drew them to her.

"She was never in one spot very long before everybody knew her," Darla Wilson said.

Jessica Wilson was also an avid marathoner and completed several. She was signed up to run a relay in Las Vegas next month. Though Wilson grew up in Rexburg, Idaho, she fell in love with Utah Valley and its mountains and wanted to stay in the area.

Wilson's family said she inspired others, and Everett Wilson said several friends were at the hospital Sunday evening when they heard the news. Her mother said several people said Wilson was "the most perfect and spiritual person they've ever met."

Though the accident has been hard on the family, Everett Wilson said his daughter would not want them to mourn. He said if she were still here, she would be much more concerned about her family than herself.

Amber Kent, Jessica Wilson's sister, said the family is planning to hold a funeral for Jessica on Saturday, Sept. 25 in Rexburg, Idaho. Some of Jessica Wilson's friends are considering a 5K fund raiser to help pay for the funeral, and Kent said there may be a memorial service in Utah County when the 5K is held.

Jessica served as a missionary in the Baltic Mission, which includes Latvia, Lithuania & Estonia.

2) Is anyone willing to share / post pictures they have from our high school days? 

I thought it would be fun to have a few posts of reunion pictures and a few posts of old high school pictures, but I need your help to do it.

hundreds help move madison high school

Submitted by KIDK Web Staff on Tuesday, July 20th, 5:13 pm

REXBURG - Hundreds of students and volunteers are in the process of moving materials from the old high school into the new one. The new Madison High School is expected to be open in August and be ready for the upcoming school year.

Students will have a bit of ownership in the new high school, and that's exactly what administrators want.
It's no secret that there's rapid growth in Madison County and the new high school will help with over crowding.

"A lot of money that they put into this building, and it all came from this community, and it all means a lot. My last classroom was a makeshift classroom up in the old weightroom," said Dave Reeser, a history teacher at the high school.

The new school is state of the art in every respect, right down to electronically locking doors controllable from the office.

"This is a tremendous opportunity for our youth and for the community. This will serve as an educational hub for decades to come," said superintendent Geoffrey Thomas.

It's a group effort as hundreds of kids are are here to help move stuff in.

"This is our school, this is our turf, we've got to work for it, I think it gives us a sense of value," said Cortland Rammell with the Student Body.

"Cause we're all apart of the school and we need to help out and contribute," said Lindsey Hadry, who is going into 11th grade.

"If we're all serving together to help with the new high school because we're all so excited about it. It will bring us together and make us all unified," said Emily Stephenson who is going into the 11th grade.

And it isn't just excitement for the incoming high school students. The old high school will be the new junior high, so it's an upgrade for many in Madison County.

The new Madison High School can support upto 1400 students, and is double the size of the old high school. The cost of the new high school? $45-million.

As for the old junior high no decision yet what to do with what will be an empty building. We'll keep you posted.

what mhs students think about their new campus

Posted: Wednesday, August 25, 2010 8:18 pm

"The gym is awesome, the hallways are bigger and there are windows in the classrooms!"
- Alyssa Edelmayer, 17

"There is more variety in the lunches, and I like that it's an open campus."
- Seth Anderson, 15

"The coolest thing about the school is the gym, - it's a lot nicer than the old gym and the seats aren't hard benches. The bathrooms are also way nicer - they aren't dirty like the old ones."
- Kirsten Williams, 16

"The score-board thingy is sweet."
- D.J. Jordan, 16

"I love that it's so big and way nice. I didn't expect it to be this nice."
- Ambre Rudd, 16

"Everything is new and I like that."
- Taylor Larsen, 16

"The gym is the coolest because I think it's just awesome."
- Braden Wallace, 15

madison high school is ready

Posted: Monday, August 23, 2010 11:19 pm | Updated: 11:35 pm, Mon Aug 23, 2010.

REXBURG - Measuring at 225,000 square feet and with a cost calculated at about $37 million as of June 30, the new Madison High School is a state-of-the-art, well-planned and meticulously laid out campus built to serve the growing needs of Rexburg and its surrounding communities for years to come.

Classes begin Wednesday, and although there are still some organizational and housekeeping issues, construction on the campus is nearly complete.

"We are ready and good to go," said Principal Rodger Hampton. "All of the instructional areas are ready to go."

The only major construction that remains is the new 1,200-seat, acoustically designed auditorium, which sports a more than 60-foot stage and a large orchestra pit. The school is waiting on a large shipment of seats before the project can be complete, hopefully by mid-October.

Hampton said that overall he's very pleased with the school.

"It's been done right," he said. "It was designed for the needs of the community - the arts, vocational, academics and P.E. have all been planned for."

The high school site is made up of three main buildings.

The main high school contains two gymnasiums, classrooms for the arts and academics, science labs, computer labs, a media center/library, the auditorium, locker rooms, counseling center, school office, band/orchestra/choir rooms and a cafeteria or commons area.

All of the school's 1,450 lockers are also in this building.

The 25,000-square-foot vocational building holds shops for welding, auto body, small engine repair, a lab for aquaculture, agriculture and shops for woodworking and computer drafting. The building also includes a lab for horticulture. Greenhouses and orchards are to be planted behind the vocational building.

The third building on the site is a release-time seminary building, which was constructed by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

A significant area has been designated for further growth, including the eventual addition of a football stadium and other athletic courts. The school is also designed for future academic additions.

The parking lot now has 450 spaces allotted for students, up from 375 spaces in the old high school. There are also 70 spaces for faculty and staff.

Much of the design of the campus came from faculty feedback.

"We worked with the staff closely," said Brent McFarland, the project architect with JRW Associates. "Once we had that component, the design and planning went very well. I am very pleased with the overall project - the quality of the work is very high."

The entire project was budgeted at $48.1 million - most of which was to be obtained through a $40.5 million and a $19.5 million school bond, the latter of which was passed by voters in November 2008.

The bonds also went toward the construction of the South Fork and Burton Elementary Schools.

District Business Manager Varr Snedaker said the project looks to be well under budget with only about $37 million spent since the end of June, although expenses will continue to be accrued until the project is completely finished.

During a tour of the building, Superintendent Geoffrey Thomas said that the greatest emotion he feels about the construction is gratitude.

"It's a challenging thing to get a two-thirds of the community to tax themselves voluntarily to pay for a high school and elementary schools," said Thomas. "I'm very grateful for that. It's a wonderful thing."

An open house for the building will be scheduled once the auditorium is complete.

About the school
  • 225,000 square feet (up from 160,000 square feet),
  • Floors are built with polished cement and stone for easy cleaning, and the walls are graffiti resistant
  • 450 student-parking spots (up from 375 spots), in addition to 70 faculty slots.
  • 1,450 lockers for students
  • 1,200-person (up from 550-person), acoustically designed auditorium with stadium seating.
  • Commons area with five serving stations and expanded food menus to encourage students to stay on campus.
  • Connected to the school district's fiber optics and WiFi networks.
  • 160 security cameras
  • ADA-compliant with three elevators.
  • A two-story main gymnasium, which includes a basketball court and an indoor track. This gym is significantly bigger than the previous Madison High School gym and boosts a capacity of 2,400-person bleacher seating. The bleachers are only accessible from the second story, to reduce scuffing the gym floor.
  • A smaller auxiliary gym. Both gyms have a high ceiling to prevent stray balls from getting stuck in the ceiling.
  • Two boy's changing rooms and two girl's changing rooms so that visiting teams do not have to use the changing rooms of another gender.
  • An expanded co-ed weight room, a dance studio and a expanded wrestling room have also been included in the new school.
  • A band room and an orchestra room both of which are nearly double the size of their counterparts in the old Madison High School. Both are also equipped with extra storage and practice rooms.
  • A new choir room built without windows to keep the vocal acoustics pure.
  • 5 computer labs, many with new monitors.
  • 5 science labs, with state-of-the-art equipment
  • A large media center/library
  • Expanded home economics rooms.
  • Expanded special needs and life skills classrooms
  • Shops, labs and classrooms for welding, auto body, small engine repair, computer and drafting, horticulture, aquaculture (raising fish), agriculture and woodworking (furniture and house-building).
  • Both shops are significantly bigger than the ones in the old high school.
  • Will include several greenhouses and a fruit orchard, which will grow produce that will be sold to the cafeteria.
  • Self-enclosed ventilated spray paint room.

Extreme Makeover: Home Edition coming to Pocatello

Posted: Wednesday, August 18, 2010 10:46 am | Updated: 1:53 pm, Wed Aug 18, 2010.
Pocatello, ID August 18, 2010—The EMHE team is starting their latest build off on a high note in Pocatello, Idaho.  The Marshall-Spreiers are a family of breakouts with a passion for singing and a true love of the performing arts.  A single mother of nine, Jane Marshall braved a courageous battle with breast cancer 2 years ago.

During her recovery, a faulty dryer vent resulted in a fire that ravaged the family home.  The house was left uninhabitable and Jane was forced to use her insurance money to seek out alternative living arrangements.

Now the money has run out and they are doing everything they can to stay positive despite half the family living in a one-bedroom cottage and the other half living in friend’s motor home.  

When Jane discovered she had cancer, the eight children living at the broken down home became warriors in their own right.  Her 18-year-old son stepped up to the plate and challenged himself to hold his family together.  At the time, Noah realized he would need to put his education on hold until his mother finished out her treatments.   Sophie (18), Ruth Anne (17), Daniel (15), Elizabeth (14), Elijah (12), Isabelle (9), and Kate (9) have all had to grow up at fast, but they still remain positive and strive to achieve their dreams. Even during these difficult times, Jane tries to lead by example.  She encourages the children to laugh, play and not give up on life.  As a family they also celebrate the human spirit by finding ways to give back to the community (anonymously).  

The Marshall-Spreiers family’s luck is about to change, and they are finally getting something they deserve. 

On August 18th, the Extreme Makeover Home Edition Team arrived to fine tune their living arrangements. The shell of their burned out 2,000 square foot home is about to be demolished so they can enjoy their love of music that binds them together.  In just seven days, the family will be able to begin a whole new composition. 

The Marshall-Spreiers will go on vacation to Key West, while “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition” team leader Ty Pennington, designers Jillian Harris, Paul DiMeo and Ed Sanders, local builder Rockwell Development, and community volunteers rebuild the structure. 

The location address is: 243 South 8th Ave. Pocatello, ID 83201

ABC’s Emmy-winning hit show Extreme Makeover: Home Edition will be selecting one of five families in Southeast Idaho to be featured on it’s award winning show that helps change the lives of families and inspires remarkable community support. Each week, the show renovates the entire home of a deserving family, traveling across the country.

We are being catered by our beloved Bart Munns with awesome smoked meat! Yum.

Please DO put a comment here that you are coming so we still have enough chairs for everyone. I know Kate Hill and Krista West have responded thus via comments....the rest of you.......? Don't skimp on the dinner though if you can possibly spare it, I know you are saving up for Gringos with the fam but I can garuntee that Bart's food will be ultimately better!

Deadline for Dinner Tickets

Our caterer informs us that we need to have a head count for dinner by Monday June 21st for the dinner. Fair enough. That is a few weeks away and still a few weeks before the dinner. We can only afford to guestimate 5 extra places for late ticket buyers, and don't suspect it will be you who gets that spot. Please buy your tickets now and we will let you know who is coming so you can prod your ole buddies to get on the chuck wagon.

Also, if you feel it is too expensive to have the dinner, you are welcome to come and chat. Please leave a comment here if you will be coming but not eating so we can make sure there is room for everyone to sit and talk.

p.s. Dan, the money man, can you give us an update on who is already paid for tickets, flash the big names so more people will want to come;)

Need more money??

Why not hit up your old high school buddies like you did for cafeteria fare? Seriously, the more money we can channel to each other, the better. We have already got an AMAZING caterer for the adult only dinner, our own Bart Munns is giving us a 'smokin' dinner. If anyone else wants to get in on the action (rumor has it Lance Wickam makes ice cream, how fun would that be for the family day...)!
Also, any entertainers out there?
Any DJs?
Any photographers?

If you have a personal buisness, we are thinking of having a networking table set up at the adult dinner for you to put a little display, or maybe just your cards. If you want a bit more action/exposure than that, just let me know and we will do all we can to help each other in this crazy world.

Finally, something confirmed!

Wahoo! After much phone tag, we have a location reserved in Rexburg for the Adult Only Dinner on Friday July 2nd.

Put it on your calendar 6-9pm at the Legacy Flight Museum

There will be a RSVP and pre-pay for the dinner mandated (hey, I can't front dinner for everyone) and I will give you more info on that as soon as I have it. Cut off date will be Friday June 18th for reservations and don't count on any discounts at the door (if you get in at all).

If you want to help out with any of the other finer details of this dinner log into the forum, got to 'future reunion plannin' then 'dinner' so we can work together most efficiently.

PS If any of you former class mates are in the food industry - we would love to funnel our buisness for the actual meal to YOU. Please, please respond promptly.

Repeat the Reminder - 10 year reunion

As posted in January, the 10 year reunion is still planned for
Friday July 2nd in Rexburg ID

Though the location is yet to be revealed, the schedule is as follows:
Friday afternoon - Family fun gathering and play from 11-4pm
Friday evening - Adult only dinner 6pm-..... this will be a catered dinner (not dominos) so there will be a fee and advanced reservation required.

As part of the evening entertainment we are updating the old senior slide show and request your sumbission of photos of you and your high school friends together since high school. Photos can be submitted on the forum, under 'future reunion planning - slide show.'

Also, if you have previously volunteered you must now sign into the forum for the planning together - sending individual emails has failed. Nancy will be making assignments on committees by the end of April.

Hope to see everyone possible!!!

Maestra McNiven

Our talented friend Lisa Mitchell McNiven is the featured artist in an Idaho Falls Symphony Concert this weekend!

If you're able, go listen to her play the Bartok Viola Concerto this Saturday, March 13th, at 7:30 p.m. at the Civic Auditorium. It will be a great concert!

Lisa is an amazing musician, and did I mention she's almost completed her PhD in music? Way to go, Lisa! We're rooting for you, and best of luck in your concert!

State Basketball!!

The Bobcats won their first round game and play a second game against Post Falls tonight. I think this link should allow you to either listen to or watch the game.

Send Good vibrations

I am not sure how to put this other than to just say it. Our classmate, Mark Steiner was recently diagnosed with cancer. If you want to send messages or well wishes, here is his and his wife's blog. Steiners

Still on schedule

Borrowed this picture from the district website.

I drive by the new highschool twice each day. I really don't even notice it anymore. It does look good though, and should serve as a good home to future Bobcats.

well represented

I was on the Madison School District site a couple weeks ago, and I was pleasantly surprised that the majority of the site's pictures were of members of our graduating class.

Check out the pictures below. I thought they were kind of fun!

Bart Ricks & Hyrum Denney

Kacie Holman Cartwright or Karlie Holman Dean - I can't tell from this angle!

Planning for a New Year!

Happy New Year class of 2000!

Did anyone else just notice that with the passing of 2009 we all got dated- it has now been a decade since we graduated from high school. A DECADE! That sounds like forever.

Now that you have realized how much time has passed since you hung-out with all your old high school buddies, mark you calendars for the 10 year reunion:

Friday July 2nd in Rexburg ID

We were trying to get back in to the old MHS stomping grounds, but alas, our old high school is being outdated already!! At least it is on schedule to be re-vamped as the new junior high since the new high school is supposed to be ready for students fall of 2010. Yikes!

Though the location is yet to be revealed, the schedule is as follows:
Friday afternoon - Family fun gathering and play from 11-4pm
Friday evening - Adult only dinner 6pm-..... this will be a catered dinner (not dominos) so there will be a fee and advanced reservation required. As part of the evening entertainment we are updating the old senior slide show and request your sumbission of photos of you and your high school friends together since high school. You can email your photos to: or post them on the forum.

Happy New Year!! See you in a few months!
