Jayme L. Biendi
was born on Feb. 6th 1976 and lost her life in the line of duty on Jan. 29th 2011 just eight days shy of her 35th birthday. Jayme grew up in Granite Falls, Washington, the oldest of six children. She graduated from Granite Falls High School in 1995. Growing up Jayme enjoyed playing softball, camping trips with her family, and corralling her brothers and sisters. Jayme's father, Jim recalls a time when Jayme was playing softball and her team had no runs. Jayme came up to bat and hit a home run! She took her lap around the bases and the coach promptly took her out of the game, citing the fact that everyone else needed a chance too. This, needless to say, quickly resulted in Jim's being escorted off the field.
Jayme was an incredibly hard worker and was extremely proud of her job at the Monroe Correctional Complex. In July of 2003 Jayme earned the position of permanent Correctional Officer 1. She became Chapel Officer in 2005, where she remained until her death. She took pride in her position and was considered a fair and just officer by the inmates, as well as a dedicated and dependable teammate by her colleagues. Jayme was highly respected in the workplace.
Outside of her job, Jayme truly enjoyed life. she was an amazing cook and loved to try out new recipes to share with her family. She would get so excited about a recipe that she just couldn't wait to get in the car and take it over to share with her mom. Jayme loved it when a holiday came around because she would fill the crock pot and be the first to arrive. She also loved to be the hostess. Her parties were full of food, fun, and laughter. Jayme worked hard to make people feel welcome and she wanted everyone to have a good time. She enjoyed taking weekend trips and vacationing with her sister and brother-in-law, especially their annual summer trips to Leavenworth, or family trips to Twin Lakes. She also loved horses, and was so proud to show off the new barn her brother built for her horses a couple of years ago. As anyone who knew her well can attest, Jayme loved to talk! She was interested in everyone and always game for conversationist. She loved to catch up on the local gossip with her sisters, but was also interested in things that were going on in the world around her. She worked hard to keep up her house, her yard, her land, and her relationships. This was all evidence of the pride that Jayme took in everything she did, and of the love that she had for life.
Jayme was an accepting, non-judgmental person who never judged a book by its cover. She was a friend to all and would do anything she could to help someone in need. She was generous of heart and spirit, and would never ask for anything in return.
To her colleagues, she was a dependable, respectable, dedicated person. To her friends she was warm, caring, and the life of the party. To her family, who will miss her every day of their lives, she was simply... everything. Words cannot begin to accurately describe the person Jayme truly was and how much she will be missed. Her positive attitude, her sparkling blue eyes, her beautiful and genuine smile will forever live in our memories.
Rest in Peace Jayme though I never met you in life your a dear sister to all of us who wear the uniform & badge of a Correctional officer.
