Haley was born February 26, 1991 in Iowa City, Iowa to Jason and Amy (Deutsch) Essary.

Haley lived most of her life in the Fairfield area. She graduated from Fairfield High School in 2009 and attended Ottumwa School of Beauty. Haley worked as a waitress at George's Pizza during high school where she got to know practically everyone in town. She later worked at Kirkwood College in Cedar Rapids. Her love for all genres of music and movies was her favorite past time. Haley loved her family very much and her friends equally as much. Haley's wish to be an organ donor will allow that love to live on in others.

Haley is survived by the love of her life, Wes Peck; her parents, Jason and Amy, and her brother Dagen Essary; Grandparents, Jim Deutsch and Barb Hammes, Donny and Virginia Essary, Great Grandmother Donna Essary; her Aunts and Uncles, Laura (John) Mineart, Jamie (Rob) Keller, Amanda (Nick Ward) Deutsch and Mike (Shelly) Essary; Godmother Pam (Rick Carlson) Deutsch; cousins, Kaitlyn (her two children, Zaeden and Zella), Jacob and Madison Mineart, Riley, Brook and Avery Keller, Brendan and Jamie Miller and Brianna, Nichole and Macy Essary.

She was preceded in death by her Grandmothers Virginia Weaver and Roxie Deutsch; Great Grandparents, Fred and Helen Weaver, Benny and Millie Creek and Donald E. Essary.
