Jesse Jessen(1996 - 2012)

Jesse Jessen

Cannonville, Utah

We lost our biggest hero, Jesse George Jessen "Big Red", 16, August 5, 2012 in an auto accident. He was born March 11, 1996 in Cedar City to Eric Leo and Tammy Prows Jessen

Jesse was active in everything possible. His love was basketball and everything else that provided competition: baseball, track, and cross-country. Jesse was a 3.9 high honor roll student at Bryce Valley High School. He loved teasing and tormenting his little brothers and sisters. He excelled in everything he put a mind to. He had a great love and desire to do what was right, wanting to please everyone, especially his mother and father.

Jesse was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. His testimony was growing each day. He had a strong desire to go on a mission. I hope they let you see the game!

Jesse will be so missed by everyone who knew and was touched by him.

Jesse is survived by his parents; sisters: Emily and Brooklyn; brothers: Kelby and Tavin; grandparents: Carlos and Liz Jessen, Kingston; Rodney and Idonna Prows, Duchesne; aunts, uncles and cousins.

Jesse, you may be gone but you will never be forgotten. Stay strong until we meet again.
