Employees mourn the death of KayLynn Klosterman

JACKSONVILLE, Ore. — It’s been nearly four days since KayLynn Klosterman was found dead in her home on Friday. She was supposed to show up for work that day, but never came.

Klosterman worked at the Jacksonville inn in the pantry, making salads and bread.

When her coworkers and employers found out about her death, they said it was a complete shock, and now, they’re trying to cope with the loss.

“We have a very morose crew of people right now, it’s been a very difficult weekend, some employees couldn’t work at all and most of us were here but it was very very difficult,” Jerry Evans, owner of Jacksonville Inn, said.

Evans described Klosterman as a hard worker and said she was very popular among the guests and her coworkers.

They’re planning a memorial celebration in Klostermans honor sometime in October.
