Melissa Jennifer Rose Staquet

October 3, 1996 - September 1, 2019

Melissa Jennifer Rose Staquet, 22, of Fresno, California, passed away suddenly on September 1st, 2019. <br /> <br /> Melissa was born to parents Rosalie and the late Eric Staquet, on October 3rd, 1996 in Fresno, California. At a young age, she was moved east to Clifton Heights, PA with her family. There, she was raised alongside her seven siblings. By just 17 years old, Melissa knew that her heart belonged in California, as she decided to move back and call Fresno her home once again. She would go on to accomplish many accolades in her years to come. Melissa graduated from Central East High School in 2015. In the summer of 2016, Melissa discovered that she was pregnant with her, one and only son, Jasper Elias John Staquet. She welcomed him into the world on February 25th, 2017 and he became the center of her life from then on. <br /> <br /> Melissa enjoyed the little moments of life such as taking trips to the beach, listening to music on full blast, practicing with makeup until it was perfect, and making sure to spend each of these moments with Jasper right by her side. Melissa was an active member of the church and had a personal relationship with God throughout her life. Her number one priority for the later years of her life was providing her son with all of the love and guidance she could possibly give him. Melissa was a carefree and spirited soul who could light up a room and put a smile on everyone's face just by walking in. She will be sincerely missed as she goes home to the Kingdom of God, but we find solace in knowing the impact she made on anyone she ever met. Our hearts are with everyone who was touched by Melissa's life in this time. <br /> <br /> Predeceased by her father Eric J. Staquet Sr. <br /> Melissa is survived by her son, Jasper Elias John Staquet, mother, Rosalie Staquet; siblings, Jo-Ann Babb, Lonnie and Gabriel Hernandez, Michael Bains, Patricia, Eric, and Sarah Staquet; and nieces Vylett Hernandez, Katrina, Mia, Cienna, and True Babb. <br /> <br /> The family has entrusted Cornelia Southern Baptist Church with the arrangements. A service for Melissa is scheduled for September 7th, 2019 at 2:00 pm. It will be held at 5015 W Clinton Ave, Fresno, CA 93722. A reception will follow at 3:00 pm. Pastor David Peugh will officiate the ceremony. <br /> <br /> Funeral Service: Saturday 2:00 pm at Cornelia Southern Baptist Church: 5015 W Clinton Ave, Fresno, CA 93722. <br /> <br /> Internment: Private. <br /> <br /> The family ask that donations be made in the form of flowers to Cornelia Southern Baptist Church.

    Melissa was such an outgoing, fun, free spirit. She was always cheerful. Even when she was going through rough times she was positive. She was taken way to soon and left so many people Wondering why and completely heartbroken. She will definitely never be forgotten. Rest in heaven Melidsa
