Life Story

Jessica (Jay) Walker passed away peacefully at home in Evanston, Illinois on November 23, 2022 at age 39.    

Jay reflected just the other week, “I had a charmed life.”  She cherished cuddly downtime with her husband Dante, kids and cats in the special home she and Dante created on Pioneer Road.  She was not done showering her children with unconditional, all-powerful mom love.  She thrived on her many creative endeavors like her painted rock garden that made her community a little brighter.  One of her favorite sayings to paint on rocks was: “every day may not be good but there is something good in every day.”  

Jay is survived by her husband David (Dante), daughter Scout (11) and son Quinn (5), along with beloved cats Kelso, Yuki, Frankie and Patrick (Isaac was predeceased), as well as father Keith, sister Caroline and husband John, brother Nate and wife Kelly, and her nephews.  Jay was predeceased by her mother Rosemary.

Guest Book

Leave your memories, condolences, or well-wishes.


In lieu of flowers, please consider the following donations in Jay's memory.

Jay received countless blood transfusions this year.  Those who are able please donate blood in her honor to help those who need this essential medical treatment.  If you donate, please leave a note below so this community can celebrate your gift together.

For a monetary donation, please consider supporting cancer research.  Rare cancers like the disease that Jay had don't neatly fit into any diagnosis box and have the fewest treatment options and the worst prognosis.  One of Jay's close friends, Jamie Morris, is raising funds in honor of Jay to fight rare cancers.   

This personal tribute meant so much to Jay and your contribution might help provide more treatment options for those who need it in the future.
