Jessilyn Nicole Olson, age 37, unexpectedly went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Saturday, November 21, 2020. She was a graduate of Bearden High School and Tennessee Tech, where she earned a nursing degree. Jessi was kind and compassionate, and her smile and laughter would light up a room. She loved helping people and would do anything for anyone. She also loved her Heavenly Father and always wanted to make sure others knew Him. Her daughter was her everything and greatest joy in life. Jessi adored her, was proud of everything she did, and always encouraged her. Jessi was preceded in death by her brother, Taylor Lee Olson and grandfather, Duaine Grant. She is survived by her beautiful daughter, Rylee Lin Rhodes; loving parents, Jody and Carrie Olson; very special nephew, Connor Lee Olson; sister, Jennifer (Evan) Hewgley; grandparents, Robert and Shirley Olson, Judy Grant; several aunts, uncles, and cousins. Family and friends will assemble for a Celebration of Jessi’s life at 11:00 a.m., Friday, November 27, 2020 at Grandview Cemetery Pavilion with Aaron McCarter officiating. The family asks that you please wear a mask. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Rylee Lin Rhodes Fund at Suntrust Bank.
