  1. I was very saddened to hear of Jessie’s passing. I worked with Jessie in pathology on a part-time basis and am still at Yale-New Haven in the OR. She was a wonderful, warm and funny woman and a definite class act! My sincerest condolences. God holds her in the palm of his hand.

  2. It was a pleasure to work with Jessie. She was excellent at what she did, and I have fond memories of the friendship we shared while I worked in the Memorial O.R. and she in pathology. Jessie will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family. Caroline Savo Berardesca and Family
