Jessie Mae Bryant was born in Aransas Pass, Texas on November 26, 1956, to the late Jesse Bryant and Jewel Weathers. At a young age she gave her life to Jesus Christ and was baptized and served as an active member of Macedonia Baptist Church, Aransas Pass, Texas.
Throughout Jessie Mae’s life she always believed that her salvation was based on Jesus Christ’s sacrifice. She graduated from Aransas Pass High School in 1975. Jessie relocated to Bay City, Texas for a short time before ultimately moving to Houston, Texas, where she lived for the remainder of her life.
During her time in Houston, she cultivated a host of close relationships through her memberships at Providence Baptist Church
and Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church, Houston, Texas. Jessie Mae was a 25+ year employee with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) as an Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF) Analyst, where she enjoyed her work and created lifelong friendships. Because of Jessie’s work ethic she was often called upon for projects beyond her duties. She was also known to be one of the most dedicated and hardworking people within the agency. When Jessie would say, “Let me know if you need anything” you knew in your heart she meant it.
Jessie had an infectious laugh, and a “tell it like it is” personality that always allowed everyone to know exactly where she stood on a particular issue. Those who knew Jessie well, were fortunate to appreciate her frankness, her passion, her honesty, and her willingness to do anything for you. Jessie had a big heart for helping others. She demonstrated this through mentoring and volunteering for organizations dedicated to helping children, assisting with service projects at her church, and helping organize several projects benefiting fallen law enforcement officers, as well as, raising money for cancer research to name a few. Jessie was also a true fighter, her incredible tenacity showed up in her strong will to fight and become a breast cancer survivor.
Jessie was a sports fan, football was her game, and the Dallas Cowboys was her team. She enjoyed spending time with family and friends, attending concerts, dancing to the classics of her favorite old school artists, traveling, and trying her luck at various casinos. She made frequent visits back to Aransas Pass to visit with her sister, Mozell, and enjoying time with her nieces, nephews, great and great-great nieces, and nephews. Jessie was blessed to be loved by family and cherished by friends.
