Jessica Louise Chadwell Spenneberg

November 17, 1977 — September 9, 2023


Jessica Louise Chadwell Spenneberg, 45, of Carrollton, KY, passed away on September 9, 2023, in Louisville, Jefferson County, Kentucky. She was born on November 17, 1977, in Madison, Jefferson County, IN. Jessica's departure came after a lengthy health problem that she bravely faced until the end.

In her professional life, Jessica had worked for Belterra Casino in Florence, IN, and Rising Sun Casino in Rising Sun, IN. 

However, it is outside of the workplace where Jessica truly shone. She possessed a compassionate and caring nature which was evident to all who knew her. Jessica consistently put others before herself and reveled in helping those around her. Charity work held a special place in her heart as she dedicated herself wholeheartedly to making a difference in the lives of others. Whether it was through volunteering or fundraising efforts, Jessica's unwavering commitment to the betterment of society touched countless lives.

Family was of utmost importance to Jessica. She cherished spending time with her beloved husband of almost 30 years, George Spenneberg Sr., whom she loved dearly. Theirs was a bond built on love and companionship that weathered the tests of time. Their shared journey through life created treasured memories that will forever be held close.

Jessica's role as a mother brought immense joy to her heart. She leaves behind three sons: Devon Bruner, George Spenneberg Jr., and Jordan L. Buchanan; and a daughter, Mercedes (Chris) Upton. Her love for them knew no bounds and she took great pride in witnessing their growth and accomplishments.

Jessica also showered affection upon her dog Jimmy and had an affinity for animals beyond measure. Her compassion extended not only to pets but to all creatures big and small.

Throughout life's ups and downs, Jessica found strength in the loving presence of her family. She is survived by her mother, Maggie Briley (Gary Garriott); her twin sister, Jennifer (Ian) Munsie; a brother, Bradley (Jill) Tanner; and her grandmother, Ruth Briley and Paul Owens. Jessica was a beloved daughter and granddaughter, leaving behind cherished memories that will forever be treasured.

In addition to her immediate family, Jessica was preceded in death by her father, John W. Chadwell Jr., two sisters Julie Ann Chadwell and Brandie Chadwell, as well as maternal grandfather and paternal grandparents.

The loss of Jessica will also be deeply felt by numerous uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends who were touched by her genuine kindness and warm spirit. The impact she made on their lives is immeasurable and will continue to resonate in their hearts.

Jessica Louise Chadwell's life was one marked by selflessness and love. Her dedication to the welfare of others through charity work exemplifies the beautiful soul she possessed. Although our hearts ache with sorrow at the loss of such an extraordinary individual, we find solace in the knowledge that Jessica's legacy of kindness will endure.
