June 30, 1952 ~ February 19, 2021 (age 68)


Melissa “Molly” Jetter, passed away on Friday, February 19, 2021, after a five-year bout with lung cancer.

Born in Detroit, Michigan on June 30, 1952, she lived in the Akron area since 1958. She was a 1970 graduate of Firestone High School and a 1971 graduate of Hammel Actual Business College.

Molly was an avid Cleveland sports fan. She loved the Cavs, Indians, and the Browns… no matter how dismal their seasons, she remained a supporter. She loved animals of all kinds but especially her treasured dogs and cats, Samantha, Bertha, Gladys, Alice, and Murray.
