          Jillian Elizabeth Leach left to be in the arms of our Lord on Tuesday, June 18th, 2019.  She had been planning her first “adult” road trip to Arkansas with her best friend Jared Marlow for weeks and was eager to spread her wings.  Her time on earth was cut short when they were involved in a car accident in Atlanta. TX.

         Jill came dancing and singing into the world on May 16, 2001 in Webster, TX and moved to The Woodlands in 2004.  She used her charisma and contagious laugh to light up rooms everywhere she went.  She was not afraid to laugh at her own jokes and had a knack for uplifting those around her.  Jill loved those close to her fiercely and will be missed by all who knew and loved her.

         Survivors include her mother and stepfather: Tammy and Glenn Heeter; three brothers: Jessie (Courtney) Leach, Jason Leach, and Benjamin Heeter; grandparents: David and Candy Bomer, Richard and Judy Heeter, V.E. (Buddy) and Phoung Leach, and Nina and Roy Van; great-grandfather: John Hoover.

         Jill is preceded in death by her father: Jessie Leach Sr.; brother: Travis Leach; great-grandmother: Gerry Hoover.

         Jillian took all the wonders of life, wrapped them in a colorful package and gave it to us. We will miss you.
