With a spirit as bright and radiant as the gemstone she was named after, Jade Archer has left an indelible mark on the hearts of all who knew her. Born Martha Jade Archer on August 17, 1982, in Bastrop, Louisiana, Jade's journey took her from the southern charm of Louisiana, through the heartland of Arkansas, and finally to the vibrant city of Tulsa, Oklahoma, where she established deep roots and touched countless lives. \n\nJade pursued a career in education, a calling that perfectly embodied her passion for knowledge and her innate ability to inspire. She was a teacher in every sense of the word – not only in the classrooms where she nurtured young minds, but also in the way she lived her life, demonstrating kindness, patience, and a love of learning that was infectious. Jade was a woman of multifaceted interests; she found joy in crafts, reading, fishing, and watching movies. A lover of the beach and a culinary enthusiast. As Maya Angelou once said, "My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style." This quote encapsulates Jade's approach to life beautifully.\n\nJade is survived by her beloved children, Martha Reese, Owen David, and Karli Kathiline Archer; her parents, Randy and Lisa Rice; her siblings, Amanda and Christopher Rice; and her special friend, Thomas Lockhart. Each of them reflects a facet of Jade's vibrant personality and will carry her legacy forward. A celebration of Jade's life will be held on Friday, February 2, 2024, at 10:00 a.m. CST at Church on the Move West, located at 7314 West 41st Street, Tulsa, Oklahoma, 74107. \n\nThe service will also be streamed online at [https://my.gather.app/remember/jade-archer-2024](https://my.gather.app/remember/jade-archer-2024) for those who cannot attend in person.\n\nIn remembering Jade, we invite you to share your stories, memories, and photographs on her memorial page. Our collective memories will paint a vibrant portrait of a woman who lived life fully and touched so many with her warmth, intelligence, and spirit. May these shared memories bring comfort and remind us all to live as Jade did—with passion, compassion, humor, and style.
