Jessica was loyal and kind, and a devoted wife, mother, and daughter. She was well known for working hard to make her customers, friends, and family happy, and she was a strong advocate in the agricultural community. She enjoyed watching VT football, assisting with her son’s T-ball teams, and being with her family. Her VT friends nicknamed her “Sunny,” she was adventuresome and lived life to the fullest, often smiling while saying, “Let’s do it!” She was active in Farm Bureau and VA Young Farmers, St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Oak Grove, the Tideneck Chapter of VT Alumni, and Sigma Alpha professional sorority.
She is survived by her husband Justin A. Cruise, her son John Everett Cruise, her parents Julie and Allen Hynson, and many loving family members.
A private graveside memorial service will be held. A celebration of life will be announced at a later date.
