Jessica Louise White passed away on June 7, 2020. For the past five years, she lived courageously and gracefully with the debilitating and degenerative effects of ALS. She lived each day embracing quiet moments and relishing in happy memories surrounded by her devoted and beloved family.

Jessica was born to Bill and Kay (Wagner) Koepplin. She grew up in Somers, NY and graduated from Somers High School in 1985. Jessica graduated from the University of New Hampshire in 1989. She had a twenty-five year career as an Estate and Trust officer at Putnam Trust in Greenwich, CT and Salisbury Bank and Trust in Lakeville, CT.

Jessica was an avid equestrian, voracious reader, appreciator of Victorian-Era antiques and lover of Pembroke and Cardigan Corgis. She was a member of the Katonah Presbyterian Church and served as Finance Elder in the Wappinger Falls Presbyterian Church.

Jessica was the loving wife of Thomas for 26 years and the devoted mother to Rhys. Her family was the greatest joy of her life. Their steadfast commitment to one another surpassed taking one another in sickness and in health.

She is survived by her sister Stacy Koepplin of Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. with whom she shared many beautiful memories and pursuits including the love and cultivation of David Austin English roses.

Jessica was a dedicated friend to her sister-in-law, Jean White of Katonah, NY. Their friendship spanned nearly 50 years. Married to brothers, they were true comrades and confidants in life.

Jessica was a beautiful light in the world fueled by her pragmatic sensibility, sharp wit, passion for literature, love of nature, devotion to her family and fierce determinism to live life gracefully.

Private services will be held in the future. Donations in her memory may be made to the Compassionate Care ALS of Cape Cod.
