The service for Jessica Pratt has been rescheduled for Saturday, January 15, 2022 at 11:00 a.m.

Jessica Rose Pratt, 39, Minot, died on Friday January 7 in her home. 

Jessica was born January 22, 1982 in Minot ND to Georgette Berg-Pratt and Lealon Thomas Pratt, where she joined her 2-year-old brother, Jeremy, at home.

She was raised in Minot, graduating from Minot High School with the Class of 2000. 

As a child, Jessica spent many happy times with her grandparents in Bottineau and on her aunt and uncle’s farm in Glenburn.  Several summers in a row, the Pratt family would load up the car and head to the outdoor theatre in Williston.  They would make a whole day and night of it and made memories for a lifetime.  When she was 15, she got to go on a trip of a lifetime to New Orleans, Louisiana where her host family treated her to all things Mardi Gras! 

Jessica was an ambitious child; she held a job and bought her first car while she was in high school.  After high school she briefly lived and worked in Fargo.  She worked at many telemarketing call centers in Minot.  Jessica had a definite flair for home décor and gardening.  And she could put together a beautiful turkey dinner. 

Her kids, Cash Lyle and Henna Mai Danielson, and her niece Nevaeh Pratt were the light of her life.  She loved watching them play football, basketball, and volleyball, and was so proud to see them grow into the smart beautiful kids they are today.  As a mom, she really encouraged their academics and artistic endeavors.  

We were all so proud when she graduated from Minot State University in 2012 while raising two little kids at home.    

Jessica was preceded in death by:

Her father, Lealon Pratt, her brother, Jeremy Pratt, grandfather, Lyle Berg; and her namesake, great grandmother Rose Walhaug Knutson.
