Jessica Marie Snyder was born July 31, 1993 in Minot, ND to Tracy and Wendy. She grew up in Minot and attended Minot Public Schools and then transferred to Our Redeemers Christian School. Jessica was always a high spirited little girl, creating many journeys for her parents. Her smile was as beautiful as they come. She enjoyed spending time at the lake and camping growing up, she caught many fish with her Dad. She could tell many hunting stories, she loved deer hunting and was an excellent shot pheasant hunting. She was involved in softball, volleyball and basketball. Jessica was never one to miss a prank on her brother growing up or food fights.
She later moved from Minot to Dickinson. Jessica discovered she loved the western part of the state and enjoyed seeing the Badlands. Jessica welcomed two little boys to the family: Isaiah and Benjamin. She made her home in South Heart and Jessica was thrilled to own her first home.
