Westfield-Jessica Lynn Mavis June 20, 1984 – September 2, 2019. It is with profound sadness that the family of Jessica Lynn Mavis, of Westfield, announce her passing from this life. Jessica succumbed to her long and brave battle with brain cancer on Monday, September 2nd, while surrounded by family. She was 35 years young. Jessica was born and raised in Westfield and was a baptized member of the Pioneer Valley Assembly of God. She was employed at various jobs throughout her life. Most recently Westfield Bank, CVS Franklin Street, and INSA Easthampton.Jessica was a dedicated aunt. She cherished her many nieces and nephews and took great joy in spending time making memories with them. Often giving them small, thoughtful tokens of love for the purpose of recalling special days or events. Jessica made friends everywhere she went. She was lovable, kind, and sweet. She treated everyone with respect and compassion. She loved her cats, penguins, driving with no particular destination while listening to her favorite music, day trips and vacations with her sisters, and most importantly laughing. Anyone who knew Jessica knows it is hard to recall her without a smile on her face and a giggle on her lips, regardless of whatever struggle she was facing. She was love and light – brave and strong! Jessica will be forever remembered with much love by her surviving family members. Mother, Susan (Paroline) Mavis of Westfield. Sisters, Jennifer (Mavis) Wetherell and husband David of Maryland.
