Emily Jessop

Emily Jessop was born the second child of Steve and Sherry Jessop on May 19, 1992. Her mother was a book keeper for Smith’s Bakery and her father owned and operated Gulf Amusement. She has one older brother named Zachary.   She attended Magnolia Spring’s daycare and school until she turned five years old. After that she was educated in the public schools of Mobile County, Alabama until graduation. Since toddler age she attended church every Sunday with her Great Aunt Shirley Sanders. Emily started attending The Baptist Chapel with her great aunt when she 6 years old. Every Sunday morning her aunt, or Mimi as she calls her, would pick her up and drive her to church; a tradition that is still carried on to this day.   In June of 2000, Emily’s father passed away due to complications during heart surgery. Her mother then raised her and her older brother as a single parent. Not long after he passed, her fathers business was officially closed down. While money was often tight, her mother continued to provide them with everything they needed. It was also at that time that Emily realized that she had a passion for helping people. She knew from an early age that she was going to be in the medical field. Helping others like the amazing doctors and nurses that helped her father.    The same year her father passed, her mother became a published children’s book author.  What started out as Emily’s class project for the rain forest, turned into an entire third grade class falling in love with “The Great Boodine Bird.” With the support of not only Emily’s third grade class, but all of the school, her mother was able to publish two “Great Boodine Bird” books.   At the age of thirteen, Emily accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior. It was a Thursday night during Vacation Bible School that she was saved. Not long after that she was baptized on a Wednesday night, by the authority of The Baptist Chapel under the longtime ministry of Bro. “Dell” Murphy. The following year she started volunteering to be a Vacation Bible School helper for the third and fourth grade class.   When she was 15 years old, she started to volunteer in the church nursery. It is there that she realized her passion for teaching little ones about the Lord.  A few years later, she was then volunteering to teach Children’s Church every other week.  Not long after that, Emily became the Children’s Church Director and the teacher for the little ones. She also has taught Vacation Bible School, and continues to teach a teen bible study class every Sunday night.   In 2014, after many months of prayer, Emily decided to return to school to receive a diploma in medical assisting with limited scope x- ray. Her mother was over the moon happy with the decision her daughter had made and encouraged her every step of the way. Even on nights her daughter would come home ready to give up, she was always there to lend an ear and a wise word of encouragement. Sadly, her mother did not get to see her finish school. Sherry Jessop passed away in 2015, just six months shy of seeing her daughter complete her schooling.   Emily completed her schooling with a lot of prayer and determination to make her mother proud. It was her faith in God that allowed her to continue school. Instead of letting this tragedy destroy her, she allowed her faith to anchor her. Her faith in God gave her both the hope and strength to carry on. In October of 2016, Emily passed her certification exam and is currently working for Infirmary Health Diagnostic and Medical Clinic.
