Jill was born May 25, 1969 in Fremont to Richard and Marilyn 'Smeal' Nott. She was raised in Cedar Bluffs and North Bend, graduating from North Bend Central High School in 1987. She attended UNL before marrying Brian Watson in September, 1989. After their marriage they lived in Lincoln and Chadron before moving to Fremont. While living in Fremont she worked for Bergan Schools, Fremont Area Medical Center (now Methodist Fremont Health) and for Twin J Enterprises Inc. She was a member of First Lutheran Church in Fremont.
Jill was extremely competitive in cards and board games. Cooking, baking, crafting and photography were all passions of hers. Supportive in all of her children's sports and activities, she loved documenting these events with her camera. She would even take pictures of other children and share them with those parents that could not attend.
