Jaycee Lynn Vermillion, 20 of Nanjemoy, MD passed away on Friday June 19, 2020 in Baltimore, MD.
Jaycee was born on August 9, 1999 in LaPlata, MD to Robert and Krista Vermillion. She is also survived by her brother, Clayton Vermillion; grandparents, Buttons and Lewie Stetler, Joe and Linda Davis; Aunts and uncles, Tandi and David Landolfi, Benny and Denise Vermillion; cousins Kelsey, Kamie, Lexi, Little Benny, Kendall and Steve.
She had a smile that was contagious and lit up the room. She was so confident; you might find her dressed up in heels and make up, or in her wore out Chuck Taylors, a ski hat and a flannel shirt. She was comfortable in anything! This was evident in her endless selfies.
Many describe her as a free spirit, & while that’s true, she was also an old soul. She loved music from every genre. You might see her in cowboy boots on her way to see Jason Aldean, belting out her favorite Stevie Nicks song or rapping with Mac Miller!
She was a true athlete and loved the outdoors. She played softball from the time she was little and was described as one of the best field hockey players in her high school. She participated in youth rodeos, enjoyed flag football, basketball and even wanted to wrestle in high school. Jaycee loved to “shred some major pow-pow” on the ski slopes. Deer hunting, fishing and hiking were other outdoor favorites. She had a natural ability and excelled at anything she put her mind to!
And not just a beauty, she had brains! She loved DI competitions when she was younger, enjoyed honors courses and was of course in her final semesters of nursing school. Her dream was to graduate next year and travel the country.
Jaycee was fierce in her love and loyalty of family. Affectionately called Jaybird or Birdie, she shared a unique bond with her parents, and her relationship with Clayton unfolded from annoying little sister to best friend. They were so close. She loved her grandparents and spoke so fondly of them, as well as her aunts and uncles and cousins. Let us not forget her lifelong pup Gunner!
Jaycee never met a stranger, so her friends list just grew over the years. However, once you were in her inner circle, you were like family. She was so important to so many and made it a point to let you know she loved you.
The stories and memories of Jaycee’s larger than life personality will live on forever. She touched the hearts of so many and made lasting impressions. This world was not ready for her departure, but hopefully we can find comfort in and continue to share all our fond and funny stories. She certainly made us laugh, and truly touched our hearts.
The family will receive friends on Friday June 26, 2020 from 9 AM until her service at 11 AM outside at the New Life Church in LaPlata, MD. Interment will be private. Please wear a mask and practice social distancing.
