Jessie Huff Cauthorn

August 9, 1981 — December 1, 2023

McPherson, KS

Jessie Louise Huff Cauthorn, reached the age of 42 years, 3 months, and 22 days, and passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by her loved ones on Friday, December 1, 2023. February 15, 2023, she was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer, and Jessie showed an incredible amount of strength and determination.


She was born in McPherson, KS on August 9, 1981, weighing 3 pounds and 12.5 ounces, to Donald J. and Denise (Coy) Huff. She was a fighter from birth.  Jessie attended the McPherson schools and graduated from McPherson High School in 2000.


She was a devoted, loving mama to Morgan and Hunter, her pride and joy. She was formerly married to Jacob Cauthorn, the father of her children.  She also held a special place in the hearts of her nephews, Brayden, Kelley, Craigg, and Nathen Blankenship.


Jessie held various jobs, but her passion was working with the public, and most recently, she owned and operated Aunt J’s daycare. 


Jessie enjoyed making memories with her children, camping, going to Winfield Bluegrass Festivals, and collecting frogs.  She thoroughly enjoyed hosting family gatherings with Fourth of July being one of her favorites.  Her family will dearly miss her quick-witted personality.


Jessie is survived by her children, Morgan and Hunter Cauthorn; parents, Donald and Denise Huff; sister, Katie Blankenship (Chris); her nephews, Brayden, Kelley, Craigg, and Nathen Blankenship; chosen sister, Amy Anderson (Wes); grandma, Karen Coy; and many extended relatives and friends.


Jessie was predeceased by grandparents, Robert Coy and James “Jim” & Edith Huff, cousin, Karrie Huff Dooley, and her Baby Dog.


The family will receive friends from 5:00 PM until 7:00 PM, Thursday, December 7, 2023 at the First Christian Church.  The funeral service will be held at 1:00 PM, Friday, December 8, at the First Christian Church with Pastor Lynn Scott officiating.  Burial will follow at McPherson Cemetery.
