Gamble Funeral Service

Ask a family we have served… ™



Jesse Hannah Follett unexpectedly left this world Sept. 7, 2021 in Savannah, Ga. She was born Dec.5, 1996 to Jeff and Cindy (Hanna) Follett in Savannah, Georgia, and was a joy to all. A bright and beautiful child, she grew up in the Christian faith. Jesse had a true love for life, and all who met her loved her – her soul shined for all to see.

Predeceased by Jesse are: Paternal Grandparents Byron and Mildred Follett of Troy,N.Y. (“Sweetpeas” Grandma and Grandpa), Maternal Great Grandparents Roy and Orene Hanna of Yazoo City,MS (Mamaw and Papaw), Maternal Great Grandmother Anna Voorhes of Wheeling, W.VA , and furry babies Sara Killer Hanna, Beloved Dixie, Nay-Nay, M&M, Moe, and Sweet Baby Dill.

Jesse was such a fun, loving girl. She loved nature, the beach, taking vacations, and antiquing and grilling out with her Dad. She used to dance with Grandpa Follett, play with her little brother “Joe”, and read books with her “Ma.” Jesse loved Grammie making her into a “pizza”(read Pete’s A Pizza), and talking with Pop about the Good Ol’ Days.

She was an avid reader, loved her Church family, a dedicated friend, and loved helping others, volunteering at soup kitchens and giving clothes to the homeless shelters regularly. She loved animals, pizza, watching movies with her little brother, and dancing with her friends to Let’s Dance tracks.

Jesse is survived by her mother and little brother, Cindy and Joseph Hanna (Yazoo City, MS), her father Jeff Follett (Savannah, Ga), grandparents James and Helen Hanna of Yazoo City, MS (Grammie and Pop), boyfriend Giuliano “G” Concas (Savannah, Ga), critters Taco, Little Bit, Leela, Fluffy, Peaches, Nuggett, Ringo and Monte, her Godsister Breanna Adams, Arielle and Cecelia Adams, and a host of friends and family.

Surely the best thing about Jesse we will always remember is she was so full of love. Being a Christian, she loved Jesus – that is our consolation. She is free of her addictions and is with Him now. May we all strive to be there too; one fine day.

A Go Fund Me account has been created to help with Jesse’s final expenses, or you may choose to donate to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in her honor.

We ask something from all who read this: Do Something GOOD An Unexpected Act of Kindness for someone in need. Jesse believed in it- Love Will Always Win.

Psalm 23…He restoreth my soul…

A memorial service will be held on Tybee Island at a later date.

    Gods plan
    God always has a plan..A plan I do not understand.
    As I try and understand how it is that his plan that took such a special woman so soon.
    I think:

    If I only had a few one more moment
    I would be able to say all the things I want to say

    I never got another chance to tell you how much you mean to me
    Or that you had a incredible spirit

    How I admired your dedication to your family
    How I was overwhelmed by your courage
    How my day was brightened from your laugh

    If I only had a few more minutes
    I would take you to breakfast one more time
    I’d tell you how much I will miss you
    I would give you one more hug
    I’d kiss you on your forehead
    And thank you for your love

    If I only have a few more minutes
    I’d tell you how I wish I spent more time
    I would tell you that you are a precious gift from God 
    I’d listen to SoulShine with you
    I’d tell you that it’s okay

    If I only a few more more minutes
    I’d thank you for your courage
    I would thank you for your humor
    Most of all I thank you for your memories

    I do not know Gods plan of how soon it would be
    Before I knew it God had called you home
    But you didn’t leave us alone
    We are here with the time you spent
    We are here with Your memories
    We are here with your love

    We are here with your spirit 
    continuing to be by our side watching over us
    our angel

    Your grand smile and infectious laugh, 
    Made all the difference in our day

    I wish everyone on earth could have met a young lady like you.
