West Pawlet, Vermont – Jessi Naomi Webb, 39, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, May 18, at her home located in West Pawlet, Vermont.

Jessi was born on June 25, 1982, in Springfield, Vermont, the daughter of Mike and Karen (Gagnon) Webb. Jessi had a vibrant soul that radiated light everywhere she went. She had an amazing ability to make every person she encountered feel like they were important and loved and is known by many as the “best hugger.”

Jessi was a compassionate, loving, caring individual with a great sense of humor and a quick wit. She loved to read books and write in her journals. She also treasured time with friends and family and creating memories through experiences. She had an artistic flare and loved creating personalized greeting cards for people with her own designs, just to make the recipient feel a bit more special.

Jessi left an indelible mark on every person who had the pleasure of knowing her and her light will forever shine on in those people. She will truly be missed and remembered as a one-of-a-kind beauty and the most genuine and selfless person.

She is survived by her loving husband and best friend Glenn A. LaPlante of West Pawlet, Vermont; his children Nicole (LaPlante) Liebig and her husband Nick of Rutland, Vermont, Kyle LaPlante of Burlington, Vermont, Alex LaPlante of Granville, New York, and Glenn and Andrea LaPlante of Hebron, New York; mother and father Kevin and Karen (Webb) Clement of Perkinsville, Vermont; her brother Mathew (Webb) Donohue and his wife Uli and daughter Clara; Mike Webb; grandson Isaac and countless friends, relatives and admirers.

Donations may be made to the VNA and Hospice of the Southwest Region. A celebration of life will be planned for a later date.
