Jessiah Plemons, 31, and his new wife Lillian Rose, 25, were killed in the crash on the morning of Sunday the 17th of October.

The couple had been married just two days prior on the 15th of October, WBIR reports.

The third person identified in the crash was 23-year-old Madison Davis. The trio was struck on the highway by a Chevrolet pickup after becoming stranded when their vehicle struck a guardrail.

“Jess was my everything, the glue that held our family together,” she said.

“Lily made my baby happy until the very end.”

“She is just such a sweet girl. She brightened the room and they looked so happy together.”

She said she will always remember the impact Jessiah and Lily had on so many people.
