Jesse Wray Leiss
July 22, 1992 – October 23, 2014
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our son, grandson, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend whose free and outgoing spirit will be missed by all. Jesse leaves to mourn his mother Tracy (Adrian), father Ken (Lee), siblings Kim (Bart), Krystal (Kevin), Lucas, Sean and grandparents Ruth, Jack and Eleanor. There are also many more family and close friends too numerous to name. Jesse lived his life by his own rules. He came into this world full of curiosity and with a wild sense of adventure. He lived his entire life this way, and always marched to the beat of his own drum. Jesse grew up in St. Andrews, Manitoba, then moved to Greenwood, B.C. where he completed his grade 12, before returning to Manitoba. Jesse was the happiest when he was outdoors. He loved to go fishing and camping and would spend many hours with his family out on the boat. Jesse had a contagious laugh that was often referred to as the “Tigger Laugh”. He had an infectious smile that could cheer up anyone’s day. Jesse was, and will always be loved by all who knew him. Though his life was taken too soon, he will never be forgotten. A Celebration of Jesse Leiss’ Life will be held on Sunday November 16, 2014 at 2:30 p.m. at 123 Copper St. Greenwood, BC (McArthur Centre—big red building with Legion below). Please join us. Open mic to follow for stories that you may want to share. Our heartfelt thanks go out to everyone for all the support in this most saddest time of our lives.
