JESSICA DAWN DYE, age 29, of Chesapeake, Ohio, passed on Sunday, December 9, 2018, at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, after a long, courageous battle with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. She was the daughter of Don and Debby Grose Auch. Jessica was a loving mother, wife, daughter, sister and friend to many. In her short time on Earth, Jess left an incredible mark on the lives and hearts of her family and her friends, as well as countless numbers of those in the community through her work as a nurse at St. Mary’s Hospital in Huntington, WV. Jess is a graduate of Parkersburg South High School, Marshall University and St. Mary’s School of Nursing. She loved spending time with her husband and three-year-old son, laughing and cherishing the lighthearted moments in life with a giggle and a radiant smile. Her love for others and grace will persevere in the minds and hearts of those she touched. Her spirit and good nature will endure through her son, Sawyer. She is survived by her husband, Zachary Alan Dye; her son, Sawyer Alan Dye; her parents, Don and Debby Auch; her sister and brother-in-law, Sarah and Jessie Smith, and niece, Molly Smith; her grandmother, Joan Auch; along with many other loved family members.
