Nicole Bessant Repp

December 14, 1971 - December 8, 2016

Nicole Bessant Repp passed away after a courageous battle with cancer at Scripps Green Hospital on December 8, 2016, at the age of 44, just one week shy of her 45th birthday. Nicole Bessant was born on December 14, 1971, in San Jose, CA, to David and Sheila Bessant, both of whom were originally from England. She graduated high school in 1990 from Santa Teresa High School in San Jose and went on to study Communications at San Diego State, during which time she met the love of her life, David Norman Repp. The two were married on April 16, 1994, and welcomed three wonderful children. Nicole stayed home with all three kids and soon became an active volunteer at local schools, from pre-school all the way through high school. Whether it was room mom, gala chair, Friends of LJES president, water polo team mom, graphic designer for school foundations, event organizer, or simply filling in with whatever was needed, she was a constant fixture at four La Jolla schools her kids attended. She had a knack for fundraising and was responsible for raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for local schools. Nicole eventually lent her fundraising and event talents to Las Patronas and served their organization for six years and, along with her fellow LP members, helped to raise millions of dollars for local charities. Nicole was passionate about kids and helping others. Friends and family remember her for her generosity of spirit, kind heart, sense of humor, authenticity, and mama-bear style to everyone she cared about. She would be the first one to tell you if you were doing something wrong, but always with loving intentions. She wanted to see people be their best, and had no problem telling you how to get there. Nicole Repp was the epitome of real' and her friends and family will miss how she made us laugh on a daily basis.More than anything Nicole loved her children. It was her greatest joy, her proudest accomplishment, and she relished in their individual pursuits. From water polo to photography to girl scouts, she was always 100% behind her kids in whatever they did. As busy as she was, she always made time for others and was an incredible friend to have by your side in time of need. A beacon in this community, she impacted many and her absence will felt for a long time to come. Nicole is survived by her husband, Dave Repp; children, Chase, Parker and Paige Repp of La Jolla; and her brother, Jon Bessant of San Jose. A memorial will be held Saturday, January 7th for family and friends. In lieu of flowers, please donate to Las Patronas or the Peckham Center for Cancer at Rady Children's Hospital in Nicole Repp's honor.
