Obituary for Jessie Marie Carter

Jessie Carter (Sister) was born August 30, 1955 in Delhi, Louisiana to the late Jesse and Polly Drummer. After the passing of her beloved mother and father, she was taken in and raised by her mom Roxie and her dad Richard Johnson, in Chicago IL. She confessed Christ and was baptized at a young age. She graduated early from Chicago’s Hirsch High School in 1973. In 1971, she started her career with McDonald’s and continued to work her way through the ranks until she became the supervisor for three McDonald’s restaurants in Chicago, IL.

Jessie married her soulmate Cedric Carter on March 14, 1987 in Chicago, IL and was the mother of four children. In 1991, she moved to Columbus, Ohio where she continued to work for McDonald’s. Together her and husband decided to purchase their own McDonald’s restaurant in 1999. They worked side by side for several years, but decided to move on in 2005. After selling the restaurant, she continued her career in the banking industry where she later retired in 2014. She was beautiful inside and out, caring, loving, and admired.

She reached her potential as a daughter, sibling, aunt, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and was a friend to all she met.
