Lewis, Jesse M.
Jesse McCord Lewis was an amazing child, full of light and love that was unmistakable in his presence. He brought joy to the world with his infectious and radiant smile. He was smart and compassionate beyond his years. Jesse died bravely trying to lead other children to safety. He ran into the hallway to help when he heard the shots. In our hearts we already knew because that was the way he lived his life - fearless, full of courage and strength.
We take comfort in knowing what a brave child he was. His actions were consistent with the way he lived his life; passionately embracing everything, a perfect combination of courage and faith, like a little soldier, his favorite toy. The love we shared was abundant and all encompassing. He slept in his mother's arms almost every night of his precious life, with her thanking God for him.
If you met Jesse once, he would leave an indelible mark on your heart. The picture that remains etched in our souls is one of him in his boots, no socks, ripped jeans and a t-shirt, an army helmet strapped to his head, a smudge of dirt on his cheek, tromping through the pasture on his way from one adventure to another.
Jesse is continuously loved by his dear, precious older brother JT who was and will always be his loyal protector - who looked after him with tender care and devotion.
It is and will remain forever unbelievable that Jesse is with Jesus now and blessing those in heaven. He is survived by his mother, Scarlett Lewis, his brother, JT Lewis, his father, Neil Heslin, his grandparents, Maureen Lewis, Bob Comfort, and David Lewis, his uncles, aunts and cousins, Trent, Sasha and Hayden Lewis, Jordan, Becky, Christian and Everett Lewis, Coulter, Kristy and Quinn Lewis and as many dear friends as the stars. God's Love is Triumphant.
Friends may call at the Honan Funeral Home, 58 Main Street, Newtown Thursday morning from 9:00am to 12:00noon. All other services and interment in Zoar Cemetery, Sandy Hook are private.
In lieu of flowers, please make donations to: Voice for Joanie Inc., 5 Glenwood Rd, New Milford, CT 06776

You are a warrior. You are a member of a team.
You put the mission first. Your mission was to stay on patrol, to protect the other kids, and when given the chance, to get them out.
You never quit.
You are disciplined and physically and mentally tough.
You never quit. You never leave behind a fallen comrade.
You remain ready to engage and destroy the enemies of what's right, bravely facing the gunman and destroying his desire to have everyone in that classroom killed, including your teacher, including the teachers aide, including each one of your friends, and including you.
You are a guardian of freedom and the American way of life.
I'm sure the soldiers in Heaven have presented you medals for the strength, courage, bravery, and selflessness you showed in saving your buddies. Wear those with great honor and pride.

We will always salute you, Jesse Lewis, age 6, an American Hero.

On this fifth anniversary, I am remembering Jesse, his mother Scarlett, his father Neil, and brother J.T. with love and sorrow.
I am a disaster/trauma specialist who was sent by the Red Cross. I was with you in the classroom with President Obama and I held your hand as you prepared to enter the church for the funeral. You are forever in my prayers.
