Jessica was born March 22, 1978, to Jim and Vicki Malard of Hazelton, ND. She graduated from Hazelton-Moffit-Braddock High School in 1996.
Jessica married the love of her life, Cody Kummer on July 28, 2012, at the Banks Lutheran Church in Watford City, Cody’s hometown. When they joined in marriage, Jessica’s son, Nickoli and Cody’s daughter, Regan became siblings and were proud to welcome baby Connor to the family that April.
Jessica loved her job at Border States Electric working as a Lighting Specialist. She was passionate about doing good work in the right way. If you went anywhere with Jessica, she analyzed the lighting in buildings, walkways and parking garages and could always tell you how to make things brighter and better.
Jessica’s friends describe her as a strong, smart, and funny woman who was the life of the party, as long as the party was over by 9:00 PM and wasn’t too “peopley”. Her perfect comedic timing paired with the perfect amount of raunch added to her charisma. She tended to make anyone who spoke with her feel like they were the most important person in her world. Jessica was a great mom, always putting her kids first. She adored her husband and her fur babies ferociously.
Jessica loved decorating her house. She was a big fan of using Pinterest for inspiration. She enjoyed sharing TikToks, especially those she knew would be hilarious to the receiver.
Jessica will be deeply missed by her husband, Cody; sons, Nickoli and Connor; daughter, Regan; her parents, Jim and Vicki; her sister, Monique and brother-in-law Curt and their children Tucker, Sawyer and Larkin; her sister, Alicia and her son Trevor; her brother, Josh, his wife Renae and their children Kaitlyn, Jenna, and Allie; and her in-laws, Brooks and Carol Kummer; and her sister-in-law, Shonna.
She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Arnold and Viola Ohlhauser and Edwin and Valda Malard.
