Caysee Nicole Temmen, age 24, of Jefferson City, Mo., passed away Monday, December 12, 2022.
She was born on July 10, 1998 at St. Mary’s Hospital in Jefferson City, the daughter of Chad Joseph Temmen and Tawney Lynne Owens.
Caysee attended Blair Oaks School for majority of her education, and later earned her diploma from Jefferson City High School. Following graduation, she attended Columbia College.
Caysee got to spend her toddler days going to work with her mom each day driving the school bus. She loved going on all the fun field trips and sports events and everyone was always so excited to see her on their bus rides. Through elementary and middle school Caysee displayed her school spirit on the cheerleading squad and her athleticism at track meets and basketball games. As she grew, she shared her love for horses with her mom. They would spend hours out at the farm working with their horses. Caysee even tried barrel racing and won some ribbons. She loved the outdoors, riding four-wheelers, and taking family fishing trips. Growing up, hot summer days were spent running around the farm with her mom and dad, swimming in the creeks with her brothers and sister and roller blading and riding bikes through the neighborhoods. When her dad had a boat Caysee and the family spent almost every weekend on the river skiing, tubing and grilling on the sandbar. She was most proud of her time spent out hunting with her dad and all their traditional dad and daughter pictures with their game trophies. When she and her siblings were younger, they loved going on family vacations and camping trips. Caysee’s favorite place to go was always the beach. She was known for driving in her car listening to music with the volume blaring and singing at the top of her lungs. Music was peace to her and she spent a lot of her time building playlists she could listen to for hours on end. Caysee had an artistic side to her as well, always doodling, writing, and bedazzling just about everything.
Caysee, lovingly known as “Pooper” or “Caysee Poo” by her family, cherished the times she spent with them. She was quick to soak up snuggles from all the babies of the family but above everything, her daughter, Kaydee, was her world. She always found joy in spoiling Kaydee and gave her the nickname “Kaydee Bug”. She would do anything to put a smile on her kaydee bug’s face. Caysee will be remembered for her loud and outgoing spirit, her beautiful bright eyes and her captivating smile.
