GREENVILLE – Jessica Laine Foster passed away on Thursday, February 4, 2021, at the age of 46, after a courageous battle with cancer. Despite her illness, Jessica stayed strong and determined to be in control until the end. As a child, Jessica dreamed of being a dancer when she grew up. But after graduating high school in 1992 from Muhlenberg South, she decided being a teacher was more practical. Jessica completed a Bachelor of Science degree in 1998 at Western Kentucky University. She later went back to school to complete a Master of Arts in Education with the emphasis on reading intervention. Jessica took pride in her students at Dishman-McGinnis Elementary, and she shared her passion for learning with numerous children throughout her 20 year teaching career. In addition to the joy brought to her by her students, Jessica enjoyed music and the beach, but nothing could compare to her love for animals. She was a fun loving person with a servants heart.

Jessica is survived by her mother, Sheila Foster; her father, Mike (Sandy) Foster; a brother, Clayton; half-brother, Courtland Foster; step-brother, Brandon Foster; niece, Channa Foster; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. She was preceded in death by maternal grandparents, Bishop and Flossie Harkins, and paternal grandparents, Courtland and Dorothy Foster.

Funeral services will be Sunday, February 7, 2021, at 1:00PM at Tucker Funeral Home in Central City, with Bro. Joe Chambers officiating. Burial in Lee Cemetery. Visitation will be Saturday after 6:00PM at the funeral home. Family and friends are asked to wear a face covering, in accordance with the governor's mandate.
