A Glimpse into Jessie’s Life……..
Jessie Lee Cluff was born March 28, 1927 to Oscar and Cherry Hector in New Iberia, LA.
Jessie attended schools in Beaumont, TX, where she graduated from Charlton Pollard High in 1944.
Jessie married Eddie Lee Cluff and together they raised a daughter, Cherry Dee. Jessie retired from the Beaumont Club as a chef. She enjoyed spending her spare time with her family and her beloved church, East Mount Olive Baptist Church.

She traveled all over the U.S. with the National Baptist Convention. Jessie loved her church and only missed service when she would travel back and forth to California to be with her daughter.
