Alicia Ann Jumper was born on July 20th, 1981, in Tahlequah, OK, the daughter of Jerry Dean Jumper (Seq. Soph 1974) and Roberta (Christie) Jumper Sr. She started as a freshman in 1997 and graduated with the Class of 2000 from Sequoyah High School in Tahlequah.
There are few people that you know that were as friendly as Alicia. She didn't know a stranger, everyone she spoke to was a friend she hadn't met yet. She loved music, especially gospel singing and loved to play her guitar, drums, and harmonica.
There was no finer television show than WWE Smack Down for Alicia. She was even known to wrestle with the other children growing up. She had an ornery streak and enjoyed teasing and telling jokes.
Her family was the best part of her life, she loved them all, and couldn't wait for the next holiday so she could eat a meal and spent the day listening to their stories, and perhaps tell a few of her own. She was always in the company of her Uncle Ed Jumper, and together they would go around to the various churches and sing the old gospel songs. A Baptist by faith, Alicia was a member of Johnson Prairie Church and also enjoyed time spent at Olive.
Alicia's life ended far too soon on December 14, 2017 in Tahlequah, OK, at her home. She was 36 years old. We will all miss her sweet smile, that friendly hello, and all the love she gave so freely.
She is preceded in death by her mother, father, two sisters, Emily Garner and Robin Gail, her grandparents, Willie Jumper Sr. and Minnie Handle Jumper, her uncles, Frankie Lee Jumper, Watt Jumper, Willie Jumper Jr., Buster Jumper, Russell Jumper, and two aunts, Lillie Hess and Tina Walker.
She is lovingly remembered by her brother Jerry Jumper Jr. and companion Mikayla Shell of Stilwell, OK, and her aunts and uncles: Rosie Rossignol, of Tahlequah, Mary Jo Jumper (Seq.Fresh 1965) of Rocky Ford, Alice Jumper Wilder (Seq. Class of 1976) and husband Brian of Inola, Carol Dunn of Tahlequah and Sandra Whitecrow also of Tahlequah.
She leaves her uncles: Ed Jumper of Park Hill, Marvin Christie of Tahlequah, Dennis Christie of Tahlequah, Franklin "Rocky" Jumper of Kansas, OK, and Misky Walker of Stilwell, OK as well as many cousins and a host of friends and loved ones too numerous to mention.
