Jesse was stopped on Hwy 1417 Friday morning, October 4, 2013, waiting to turn left into work on his motorcycle. He was rear-ended by a young woman who was NOT PAYING ATTENTION. Jesse was care-flighted to Medical Center of Plano on life support, Jesse sustained a brain injury, broken neck and had a lengthy heart attack.

On Day 15, Saturday, October 19th at 3:30 am Jesse lost his fight to the damage to his brain, because one person, not paying attention ran him over with a car.


Criminal charges have yet to be filed.  The investigation team has filed the report with the district attorney's office.  The next grand jury sits in January. 


JEMS Foundation has begun development of J.E.S.S.E, the Jesse Elliott Street Safety Education program that will be presented in schools for the increased awareness and for the decrease of "crashes into motorcyclists" 


Join us today, by making a small contribution that will be used to improve presentations, fabricate additional visual aids, travel to more areas and educate more car and truck drivers of all ages.

we want the car for a visual aid
we need a trailer for the bike and car

Jesse Styles Elliott born in Terrell Texas 4/29/1967, 46 years old to
Wayne & Freida (Turner) Elliott. Died from injuries sustained in a
motorcycle accident on October 19, 2013

Jesse was a master mechanic, most recently working at Heritage
Collision Center. As Jesse was stopped, awaiting oncoming traffic to
clear before pulling into work, on his motorcycle, an inattentive driver hit
him from behind, without slowing down.

Jesse was proceeded in death by his father, Wayne Elliott and
grandparents J.B and Thelma Turner and Ruben Doyle and Lois Elliott.
Mourning the loss of Jesse are his wife of 20 years Kaye Elliott of
Pottsboro, his mother Freida Elliott Simpson & husband Kenneth of
Terrell, Brother Dennis Elliott & wife Tami of Canton 4 Children; Cody
Roberts, Chris Roberts, Kalii Linder and Stephanie Bice and 15 beloved
grandchildren.

Jesse will never be forgotten, by the many brothers and sisters, who
shared Jesse's passion for motorcycling. Jesse was a 20 year member
of Texas ABATE, serving on the board for the past several years. Jesse
was a US Defender and member of Coalition of Independent Riders
(COIR), working together with all motorcyclists to improve legislative
effectiveness and protecting our freedom to ride. Jesse has always
been an advocate for promoting safety in motorcycling, helping ensure
drivers "Look Twice .. Save a Life". Jesse was a blessing to the
community, always there to give to someone in need; whether it was
fixing a car for a neighbor or helping a less fortunate family have a
holiday meal and toys with Nurse Angel Ministries and "For the Kids" Toy
Run.

On October 26th, we will have a Celebration of Life for Jesse at Odd
Fellows Hall "“ 200 E Nash Terrell, Tx at 10 am

Sherman Elks Lodge beginning at 10 am with a Memorial, followed by a

Safety Fund at any Landmark Bank or right here on gofundme.
