Jenson Gee Obituary

Jenson Gee, 69, of Yuba City, passed away on April 27, 2017 after a valiant battle with multiple myeloma. His positive attitude and courageous spirit throughout was nothing short of heroic.

Jenson came from the humblest of beginnings and owed all his success to hard work, sacrifice, and an appreciation for the opportunities afforded by a solid education. He was born in San Francisco on April 18, 1948, shortly after his mother spent 3 turbulent weeks at sea on her immigration voyage from Toisan, China. His family moved up to Yuba City where they would all farm from dawn to dusk, even the kids before and after school, eventually establishing Gee Farms. He graduated from YC High School, served in the US Navy aboard the USS Saratoga during Vietnam, and graduated from Yuba College. He then worked at Harter Packing Company as a mechanic for 35 years before retiring and launching into an endless list of projects and adventures.

Jenson's greatest passions in life were spending time in nature and with his family, friends, and neighbors. Exchanging a good fishing story (or a bad joke) over a cold beverage in the garage and sharing his "harvests" from fishing, hunting, and farming brought him immense joy. He was resourceful and industrious, and was the first to offer a helping hand. The ever-changing array of his neighbors' homemade cookies on the kitchen table was a testament to the strong bonds he naturally fostered.

Jenson is survived by his son Brandon (Pauline) Gee of Yuba City, daughter Nicole (Jake) Krauth of San Francisco, grandson Jadon Gee of Yuba City, mother Lee Yok Sal Gee of Yuba City, brothers Jenmond and Jenming Gee of Yuba City, sisters Jenlane (Joe Aksamit) Matt of Modesto and Jennie (Brian) Dare of Redwood City, nephew Kobern and niece Camryn Dare of Redwood City, dog Chewy, and many dear friends. His father Joe Gee preceded him in death.

A heartfelt thank you to the staffs of Martinez VA and Sacramento VA - especially Dr. Tran and our "VA mom" Karen Mayo, for their exceptional care and compassion throughout his difficult journey.

We will always carry his memory with love and gratitude in our hearts.
