September 21, 1952 – August 30, 2019
Jessica Cassady Guyer, born September 21, 1952, in Greenville, Alabama, left us far too early on August 30, 2019.
Jessie grew up in rural Alabama where she developed a love for athletics and people. She attended Judson College where she made many of her closest lifelong friends. After Judson, she spent 4 years studying Physical Therapy and “Rolling Tide” at the University of Alabama. She moved out West and met the love of her life in Las Vegas. They married in February 1978 and moved to Elko a few years later. Jessie was the first Physical Therapist in the Elko area and spent years rehabilitating patients at Elko General Hospital before opening her own practice Elko Physical Therapy. Over the years, she treated countless people in our community, most of whom she quickly befriended. Together, Jessie and Dan had 3 children; Jessie loved her children and 5 grand babies more than anything and spent most of her time making sure they were taken care of and happy. She lived her life in service of others, and oh, what a life it was.
