Jessica Anne Marlow

10/1/1956 - 3/16/2024


Jessica Anne Marlow, of Port Hadlock, Washington, passed away on March 16, 2024, at age 67. She leaves an indelible impression on those who called her wife, mother, grandma, daughter sister, niece, cousin, and aunt. Her brilliant spirit, radiant smile, and compassionate heart captivated everyone who had the opportunity to know her.

Jessica was born on October 1, 1956, to Pearl Anne and Lee Roy Tyner, Jr., in Fort Ord, California. She was one of three sisters to the best big brother. She graduated from Port Townsend High School in 1974. Shortly after a stint of managing the local A&W where she made the best ice-cream floats, Jessica began her thirty-one-year career with the United States Post Office.

Jessica married her high school sweetheart William Marlow on May 15, 1980. They built a loving family and had three children. Jessica was an exemplary mother and human being embodying the qualities of unconditional love, strength of spirit, and boundless generosity that made a difference in every life she touched.

Jessica not only worked many hours at "HER" post office, but she was also a lifelong devoted volunteer. She was a parent adviser for the class of 2003, a Cheer Coach for both Little League and high school programs, and the East Jefferson Little League Secretary. She volunteered for the Chimacum Craft Fair from its inception until she could not physically do it any longer. For many years, she was one of the compilators for the annual Rhody Run. Jessica also successfully fundraised for Olympic Tae Kwon Do, Kelly's Gym, and Big Blue Boosters. Her giving spirit helped maintain a decades-old family tradition using her significant creative talents to make hand-knit toys (such as stuffed Snails or Humpty-Dumpty dolls) and delivering them to the Salvation Army giving disadvantaged children toys. The best Snaily she ever made still has a prominent place in her niece’s home.

Jessica’s loss has left a deep void in our hearts. We will always remember her unwavering love for her family, her passion for music, and her acceptance of everyone, regardless of their background. The sound of her laughter, which brought joy and happiness to those around her, will never be forgotten. We hate that you are gone but take comfort in knowing that you are now free from pain. We will forever love and miss you until we can meet again.

Jessica is survived by her husband, William Marlow, her children, Tyrell Marlow and his wife Claire, Isaiah Marlow, Jenna Heil and her husband Donny, her sisters, Cassie Thompson and her husband Dale, Sandy Metcalf and her husband Larry, Lisa Allen, her brother, John Tyner and his wife Sharon, grandchildren Curtiss Marlow, Shaden Marlow, and Charlie Marlow, as well as many nieces and nephews whom she loved dearly.

A celebration of Jessica’s life will be held on April 14, 2024, at 2:00 pm at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, 1020 Jefferson St., Port Townsend, WA 98368.
