Jessica Sue Fischer, age 43, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, August 10, 2018. She was born on July 24, 1975 in Green Bay. Jess was the wife of her beloved "Fancy" and mother of their daughter Lillian. Jess loved the Green Bay Packer Fan & watching with family & friends.
Sgt. Fischer proudly served the citizens of the Town of Madison as a patrol officer, detective, and sergeant for the past 13 years. Her service to the community was beyond reproach and she will truly be missed.
Sgt. Fischer received numerous awards during her tenure with the Town of Madison Police Department. One of her first awards was for a traffic stop, eluding and drug arrest in 2006. This case turned into Jess writing a search warrant and a larger drug seizure. She has received many letters from thankful citizens and appreciation for her work from other law enforcement agencies, Jess also received recognition for her work from the United States Marshal Service. Sgt. Fischer cared about kids and ran our Shop With A Cop program for many years.
On January 4, 2010 Jess was assigned to our Detective Bureau. She enjoyed this work, but really missed patrol and working directly with our citizens. Due to her abilities, work ethic and personality Jess was promoted to Sergeant on May 2, 2016. She served in this role until death with distinction and honorably.
Jess is survived by her wife Laurie Weaver & daughter Lillian Grace, mother, Sandy (Larry) Vine and her father, Michael Fischer, sister, Marsha (Brad) Martin and nephew Kyle Fischer. Mother-n-law & father-n-law, Madeline & Marvin Flogel, sister-n law Nicole Doyle, brother-in-law William Flogel, nephew Ryan McGovern and extended family father-in-law Charles Weaver, sister-n-law Kaicy Weaver.
Jess loved dressing up for Halloween her favorite holiday & lighting fireworks on the 4th. She loved all her friends at Club 5, a place she called home. "Don't Stop Believing" #fiveforever
