Jessica Leighton


Jessica Leighton, 44, passed away peacefully at Harborview Medical Center in Seattle on April 8, 2021, with family by her side.

Jessica was born in Ketchikan, Alaska but spent much of her childhood in the Denver area, though Alaska continued to call her back. She loved the outdoors, especially fishing, and camping with family and friends at Ward Lake. She dearly loved her family, especially her children, and always delighted in cooking for and feeding her friends and family, the more, the merrier. She just wanted everyone to be happy, and will be remembered for her easy smile, & her generous nature. 

Jessica is survived by her children, Jacinda, Jadyn, and Jakob; her parents, Debbie (Phil) Powers, and Ivan (Rita) Leighton; her siblings, Tyler (Georgia) Addington, Jeremy (Jennifer) Hepp, Gabriel (Brandy) Leighton, & Leslie (Chuck) Lindsey; and many, many Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, and Nieces & Nephews. She was loved, and will be greatly missed. 

The family will gather later this summer to spread her ashes, and donations can be made to First City Homeless Services or to PATH Shelter in her honor.
