Jessica Danielle Romain was born on Nov. 12, 1992 in St. Charles, Mo. She grew up in Keys, raised by her parents Charles and Mona (Perez) Romain. She was a member of the Keys High School graduating class of 2011.

Jessica was immensely talented and worked in photography, and composing poetry. She loved living in the country, and often found herself walking the woodlands, surrounded by nature. She was a strong-willed person who had a strong demeanor and enjoyed discussing anything that required an opinion.

Jessica loved to skateboard and listened to music ranging from rap and rock to Celtic and classical. She was a loving daughter, granddaughter, sister and friend. She was planning on entering college and studying to be a writer.

A Christian by faith, Jessica was baptized at the First Lutheran Church of Tahlequah.

The Lord called Jessica to her eternal home on Sunday, July 21, 2013, in Tahlequah. Jessica was 20 years old. She will be greatly missed for her smile, warmth and all the love she gave to those around her.

She is preceded in death by her father, Yuri Allen Romain in 2006.

Those left to cherish her memory include her parents, Charles and Mona Romain of Park Hill; one son, River Judah Kreilaus, of Mississippi; brothers and sisters, Brian Romain of Welling, Kaylee Romain of Welling, Scott Romain and wife Barb of Alton, Ill., Victoria Brown and husband Richard of Alton, Ill., and Roxanne Hart and husband Keith of Portage, Ind.; and her birth mother, Norma Romain of Welling.
