Jesse Andrew Mesaros
January 31st, 2000-August 13th, 2023
Our Jesse was brave, adventurous and always up for anything…...from birth. You didn’t have to be around him very long to realize that he loved an adrenaline rush. He lacked impulse control and had zero self- preservation but whatever crazy thing he was doing, he did it with a smile. Whether it was playing lacrosse, snowboarding, bull riding, riding his motorcycle, skydiving or deep-sea fishing, he was living his life to the fullest. He told me often, not to worry. If he died, he’d be in Heaven. He knew Jesus. His short but very full life wasn’t without difficult times but he always came back to us because he knew he was loved.
Jesse was so proud of his Spencie. Yes, he still called him that. He was so excited to be a big brother and was such a help when Spencer was born. Jesse was tough on Spence, always saying he had to get it in before Spencer got too big, but he was also so protective of him. Even though he wasn’t living in Ohio, Jess kept up with all of Spencer’s accomplishments and told everyone he could about his little brother. He even drove back from North Carolina for some of the biggest moments.
My boys were blessed with a big beautiful family and many cousins. When I think about all the cousins growing up together, all I can do is smile. The things they would come up with, still amaze me. Listening to them talk, laugh and cry about all the memories was nearly unbearable yet so comforting. Garrett, Santana, Eric, Kyle, Isaak (his forever best friend and brother), Jesse, Justin, Jaidyn and Spencer made memories that will now have to sustain our hearts. Allison, Hannah, Gracie and Lizzie were there for all of it too, but they are girls, so had better sense than to participate in most of it. The littles were of course sprinkled in there as well. Leah, Dominic, Jordan, Michael, Karlie Rae and Theo were all so loved by Jesse.
Jesse moved to North Carolina in 2020. He had accomplished his goal of living by the Ocean. He very quickly found a great friendship with Holden McOwen and then also Robbie Perilli. They were good men and were good for Jesse. He then met Jason Johnson and went to work for him doing maintenance and pool care. They very quickly loved Jesse and adopted him into their family. We are forever thankful to his North Carolina family. Jason and Jaime Johnson and their beautiful children, Hannah, Emalee, Ansley and Andrew. The joy Jesse had because of this family was immeasurable. He loved them all dearly.
His beautiful smile is something that we will never forget. He loved with his whole heart and was kind, silly and loyal. He was always singing. Music was so precious to us and often the only way we could communicate when things got hard. I will forever miss singing with him as he was the only one that would humor me for our singing sessions. We would play DJ in the car with Youtube and take turns picking songs to sing. We never got to hear the end of any song because Jess was on to the next one. Oh, Jess Bear, you were so loved.
Jesse is now in the arms of Jesus and back with his beloved Grandpa Cunningham. He also got to meet his Grandpa Mesaros. What an amazing moment it must have been. You enjoy your heavenly peace our sweet boy and we will live every day waiting to see you again. There are so many broken hearts here, but we are all happy that you have won your reward.
