    Callie Mai (Christie) Jumper was born on Thursday, February 2nd, 1978, in Tahlequah, OK, the daughter of Sammie and Shirley Ann (Eastham) Christie.

Callie graduated from Sequoyah High School with the Class of 1996.

    On November 7th, 1999, she married her best friend and soul mate, William “Pum” Jumper. Together they shared 19 years of happy memories and raised Fur Baby Slick Jumper and three daughters, Kalyn Christie Jumper, Kaleigh MaiAnn Christie (Seq. Class of 2014), and Kiley MaiAnn Christie (Seq. Class of 2016). She was the most loving, kind and wonderful daughter, sister, wife, mother, cousin, aunt, and friend.

    In this family, there was always something fun for them to do. When they weren’t busy, there was nothing better than swimming in the river. Callie loved to drive the back roads and turn up the radio, listening to her favorite music while she took in the sights. Callie was an avid reader and loved anything written by Stephen King.

 She was devoted to her children and anything they did was a special treat for Callie. If you wanted to see Callie happy, all you needed was a beautiful day and then surround her with her family and friends, and perhaps a dinner. Then everything was perfect.

    She was employed at the Office of Veteran Affairs/Student Affairs. She was a dedicated worker and loved being able to help the people that needed her most.

    She had a kind and loving heart, a beautiful smile, and a front doors always open to her family and friends attitude. She was of the Christian faith and attended the Church of Christ in Welling, OK. She was always the person with the bright smile and kind word for all those who needed her.

    Callie’s time on this earth was all too brief, and the Lord called this good and faithful servant home from her labors on Monday, November 19th, 2018 in Tahlequah, OK with her loved ones by her side. Callie was 40 years old, and leaves a void that can never be filled.
