Jessi Mechelle Wells was born August 22, 1982 in Fayette, MO, the daughter of Dewey Wells and Teresa Britton. Jessi was a well-known and respected substitute teacher in the Boonslick area schools. She loved kids, and nothing put a smile on her face than knowing she made a difference in their lives. Jessi was currently working at Morgan County R-1 schools, their motto is: “The Bulldog Way. Striving for the Best, We Rise Above the Rest”.  This motto fit Jessi perfectly. Jessi was known as the “planner and organizer” for her family, she was OCD and things were clean and neatly in their places. You could find her window shopping, road tripping or hiking in her spare time. Most of all she loved her family.
