Merrianne Jessop Church Leadership
Jessop’s husband Jeffs became Rulon’s beneficiary with his official title in the FLDS Church becoming “Prophet and President, Revelator and Seer ” as well as “President of the Priesthood”. The latter concerned being head of the organization of all adult male church members who were considered worthy to hold the priesthood, a tradition carried on in the Latter Day Saint movement.
Following Rulon’s death, he told the high-ranking FLDS officials, “I won’t say much, but I will say this – hands off my father’s wives.” When addressing his father’s widows he said, “You women will live as if Father is still alive and in the next room.” Within a week he had married all but two of his father’s wives; one refused to marry Jeffs and was thereafter banned from ever marrying again, while the other, Rebecca Wall, fled the FLDS compound.
Naomi Jessop, one of the first of Rulon’s former wives to marry Jeffs, later became his favorite wife and intimate. As the sole individual in the FLDS Church with the management to perform marriages, he was liable for allocating wives to husbands. He also had the authority to discipline male church members by “reassigning their wives, children, and homes to another man.”
Until courts in Utah interceded, he regulated almost all of the land in Colorado City, Hildale, Arizona, and Utah, which was part of a church trust called the United Effort Plan (UEP). The land has been calculated to be worth over $100 million. All UEP assets were put in the custody of the Utah court system pending further litigation. As the result of a November 2012 court decision, much of the UEP land is to be sold to those who live on it.
