Obituary

Judith Lynn “Judi” Jecmen, age 70, of Jefferson City, Mo., passed away on Friday, February 5, 2021, at home surrounded by her adoring family.

Judi was born on June 10, 1950 in Chicago, Il. the daughter of Alan and Jane (Delson) Feinberg.

Judi graduated from New Trier High School in Northfield, Il. After graduation, she attended Stephens College in Columbia, Mo., where she earned her Bachelor of Arts in 1971.

Judi was employed as Office Manager for Dr. Jecmen’s dental practice and she worked as the Executive and Artistic Director for Concept’s Dance Company. Judi was also Co-Founder of Show-Me Yoga.

Judi was a lifelong community volunteer. She utilized her passion for dance to create and lead Concepts Dance Company, a company designed for middle and high school aged dancers to bring dance into local schools. Judi was always an active volunteer in theater, dance, and the arts. She did everything from teaching dance at local studios, selling tickets for shows, and supporting local artists and performances all throughout Missouri. She was a recipient of the Jefferson City Arts Award from the Capital City Council of the Arts. Judi was very actively involved in promoting Parkinson’s support and research.

Judi’s legacy is of kindness, care for others, and perseverance through obstacles. Her friends remember her for how comfortable she made them feel, how she conducted herself with grace and dignity, and how she exhibited strength through her decade’s long struggles with Parkinson’s Disease. She made everyone feel accepted and loved, with many of her children’s friends claiming her as their favorite “second mom.” She will be remembered for her quick wit, providing laughs, even through her pain at the end.

Judi’s family is truly grateful for the entire community that rallied to care for her in her final years. She relied on many people for car rides, care, concern, and activities. Judi had a great support system that truly kept her going. All of the generosity and love she received is cherished by her family. Her family is especially appreciative of Dr. Christopher Goetz at Rush Hospital who acted as the family’s guide through this disease.

Survivors include: one daughter, Jessica Jecmen (David Morris) of Geneva, Il; one son, Michael “Cory” Jecmen (Lindsey) of Ashburn, Va; four grandchildren, Leo and Eva Brummel of Geneva, Il., and Logan and Ben Jecmen of Ashburn, Va; two sisters, Barbara and Linda Feinberg; one brother, Richard Feinberg (Linda Cohen); three nieces, Dana Buddenbaum (James), Annah Feinberg (David Pinsof), Sarah Feinberg (Ethan Grossman); one nephew, Joseph Feinberg; and great-niece Priya Buddenbaum.

Judi was preceded in death by her parents, and her sister, Lois Schneider.

A Celebration of Life will be held for Judi in later in the Spring or Summer in both Chicago, Il. and Jefferson City, Mo.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to Parkinson’s Research at Rush Hospital (https://www.rush.edu/sites/default/files/media-documents/RUMC%20Memorial%20Gift%20Form%202021.pdf), Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Jefferson City (1021 Northeast Drive, Jefferson City, Missouri 65109), or The Joffrey Ballet of Chicago (https://joffrey.org/donate/ways-to-give/).

Jessica and Cory- sending my heartfelt condolence in regard to the loss of your mother. She was a mentor to me and always inspired me in the world of dance! I was blessed to have been a baby sitter for the both of you and am honored she allowed me the opportunity! May you both find peace with her honor and feel blessed with the amazing woman she was

Jessica and Cory and Family,
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I have some wonderful memories of Judi, going back many years to when you two came over to play with Tricia and Steve, who then went by "Chip." To this day I can picture her teaching dance classes. I have a vivid memory of the beautiful dance she performed at your ballet recital with several other teachers to Neil Diamond's song, "We're Coming to America." It was so inspirational that it still gives me goose bumps to recall it. Later, when she taught yoga classes, I especially enjoyed the playful sessions she led with the giant balls.

It has been months since I've seen her. She had been coming to the yoga classes I was teaching at the library before Covid, catching a ride when she stopped driving. Before class we often chatted for a few minutes about our kids and grandkids. She was so proud of you and your families. I didn't realize that she had been so ill in these months when we've all been so isolated. I imagine that she is dancing once again, with all her grace restored to her.

With sympathy,
Bev Price
