Help Lay Robert Jessee to Rest

Robert “Bobby” Jessee was born on May 26th of 1965, the fifth child of six to the late Donald Kenneth Jessee Sr., and Jane (Lawson) Jessee.

A few years ago, he was diagnosed with type II diabetes, stage 5 renal cancer, and had dialysis three times a week. He was only 52!

Bobby lost his father in 2008, then his mother in 2016. He never recovered mentally from the losses.

He had no choice but to temporarily move into Plesant Hill Nursing Center in Piketon, Ohio. He made many accomplishments, then something would happen and he’d be one step behind again.

He lost his ability to walk properly, and mainly lived in his bed. He was miserable, but his heart was so full of love for many things; such as NFL football, the walking dead, Supernatural, and the old classics such as Star Trek. He was a huge fan of music! He loved to rock out and be silly.

As time had gone on, good came with bad, then worse... temporary become permanent.

Bobby got infected with MRSA.

We found out he had internal bleeding, but they weren’t sure where from. He kept getting infections from his dialysis port and went often to get it changed.

We thought he was doing better.
Recently he had the flu and was recovering.

At 4 pm on January 25th, Bobby passed away. He didn’t have life insurance, as all his money went towards bills and rent.

We, the family, have no choice but to get him cremated and hold but only a gravesite memorial.

As everyone knows, the burial processing is expensive and we really need your help, as we were not expecting this. We had zero time to prepare for a sudden loss.

There’s several fees that come along with cremation and burial, as we’d like to get him a plaque to add to his mother’s grave for him.

If any of you could donate, even the smallest of amounts, we’d be forever grateful.

We want to bury his ashes with his mother in Mound Cemetery soon.

This man was and is loved by so many, the kindest of hearts and the brightest of souls. He deserves more than he ever thought he deserved.
