Jessica Jean Fuller (known to many as Jake) 43, of Lewiston, died Wednesday, August 25, 2021. Like always, she was stubborn as a mule and joining the angels was no different after battling a disease that could not be diagnosed. She was a fighter, the strongest woman most people know, and an inspiration to many after beating Non-Hodgkins Double Hit Lymphoma, thriving in remission for three blessed years.
Jake was born May 5, 1978, in Kalamazoo, Michigan to Ronald Westphal, Sr. and Rhonda (Lange) Westphal. She graduated from Lewiston-Altura High School in 1996. Jake served in the Army National Guard from 1995-2001 as a Personal Record Specialist. Jake worked as a nursing assistant at nursing homes before beginning her 20-year Olmsted Medical Center career in Rochester, most recently as Business Analyst. On October 26, 2002, she married the love of her life, Keenan Fuller. She was a member of the Lewiston Cancer Support Group and the St. Charles Borromeo Catholic Church.
Jake loved being outdoors, especially gardening and riding motorcycle. A day of wind therapy with Keenan was a great escape for her. Jake was always up for a trip and traveling, having went to Jamaica, Niagara Falls, and many states. She enjoyed working with Keenan on making woodworking signs, photographing flowers and sunrise/sets, and enjoying her time at their log cabin home. She enjoyed canning and baking, but of utmost importance to her, was her family. She truly loved being a mom to her three children - Tristin, Mikaylee and Hunter. There will continue to be a family joke about her forth child, Layla, their chocolate lab. Being a Cinco de Mayo baby, Jake loved her Chipotle veggie bowls with the works.
While Jake endured neurological decline and doctors helplessly found normal tests results, with no textbook to read on her condition, she continued to reassure all, "Everything is going to be okay." The hardest thing in her life she had to do, was allow herself to stop fighting to be here with us. Jake's last days were flooded with those who love her.
Jake is survived by her loving husband, Keenan; children, Tristin (Halle) Brand, Mikaylee Fuller and Hunter Fuller; parents, Ronald and Rhonda Westphal; brother, Ronald Westphal, Jr.; sister, Michelle (Korey) Holtan; brother-in-law, Kyle (Tricia) Fuller; nieces and nephews, Kamrynn Westphal, Kendra & Gavin Holtan, Vance, Mya & Grady Fuller; mother-in-law, Luana (Tom) Koenig; father-in-law, Wynn (Diane) Fuller and grandmothers, Anna Blaskowski and Cindy Fuller.
She was preceded in death by an infant sister, Misty Westphal and grandparents, Orville Lange, Marilee Westphal, Gene Fuller and Larry Edwards.
