Jesse was born in Prue, Oklahoma to Paris and Zona Cypert. He was the youngest of eight children; Jesse met his wife, Jacqueline in San Joaquin Valley, California in 1948. He was 16 years old and Jacqueline was 14. They fell in love and were married one year later at the young age of 17 and 15.

Earlier this month on September the 16th they celebrated their 69th wedding anniversary with friends and family.

Jesse worked as a welder in Sand Springs, Oklahoma as a young man. In 1961 Jesse moved his family to Bremerton and he went to work at PSNS as a welder.

Jesse loved to work in his garden. He enjoyed growing and canning his vegetables. He was an excellent carpenter and took a lot of pride in remodeling and repairing his homes.

He also would make some of the best breakfast consisting of biscuits and gravy.

But the one thing that he enjoyed more than anything else was preaching the word of God and praying for people in need of prayer.

Jesse was fortunate enough to live a long life surrounded by his family, friends, fellow Christians and a deeply devoted wife until his last breath.

Jesse is survived by the love of his life, his wife Jacqueline Reeves; three sons, Marvin and his wife Betty, Steve and his wife Lori and Gary; seven grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers Jesse wishes were all the money be donated to St. Judes Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.
