Obituary of Jalisa Lynn Roe

Jalisa L. (Marshall) Roe, our beloved, passed away suddenly in the early morning hours of November 25, 2022, surrounded by her family.

Jalisa was born in Tacoma, Washington July 11, 1990, to parents Quinn and Lynn Marshall. She lived in and around the Tacoma/University Place area her entire life. Jalisa was a graduate of Wilson High School, where she created many long-lasting friendships, and garnered her love of writing. In her adult life Jalisa found a love for sales and was the consummate salesperson. She would often get into business for herself and, to help provide for her family. She was always trying to sell you something. Jalisa loved family and this last year Jalisa and Kevin opened their home and hearts to foster children. Jalisa was also a die-hard Seahawks fan and was proud to support her team. She loved to cook and could dress up anything with the right spices.

Jalisa is preceded in death by both of her parents and survived by the love of her life, Kevin, who she married September 23, 2017. She is also survived by her siblings and their families. Jennifer (Jinger) and Ricky Bailey, their sons, Marshall, Maxwell, Mason, and Maddox. Antonio (Tony) Marshall, his son, Antonio. Quinn Jared Marshall. Julian and Brandi Marshall, their daughter Freya along with Julian’s son and daughter Mathew and Mila. Her in-laws Edward and Denise Roe. Brother-in-law Sean and Tallon Roe and their son Gabriel. Along with many uncles, aunts, and cousins.

Jalisa had a love of life that was abundantly clear through her wide smile, soft eyes and infectious laugh. If you met her, you were immediately important to her, and she most likely left a lasting impression on you. If she loved you, then she wasn’t just your friend, she was your sister, auntie, mama, protector, and fiercely outspoken advocate. She had a passion for the Lord that was radiant and was an inspiration to us all. She loved everyone and was a light to the world.

Her love of her family, friends and the Lord were her entire life. Her loss has left an indelible hole in the lives of those that loved her, and the world seems just a little bit dimmer without her light shining in it. A service will be held at Zion’s River Church, University Place, WA. January 14, 2023.
