Jesse Lewis Coody


 With his career well under way, Jesse and Lisa decided to start a family.  Their daughter Paige Grace was born in 1994 and their lives were forever changed.  A son, Jace Lee Samuel followed in 1998.  With both kids busy in soccer and football, Jesse never failed to miss a game.  His children knew he would always be in the stands cheering them on. He was their #1 fan.  He also coached his son’s football team for many years.

 His children describe him as a selfless, supportive and wise father.  They will most miss his infectious laugh and the knowledge of all things big or small that he so graciously shared with them.  They will remember his complete devotion to them and they are thankful he raised them to be strong, independent individuals.  He taught them to always strive to do their best and finish what they started.  That being said, he also often said to them, “Never be too proud to ask for help when you need it.” 

 Jesse cherished his friends and family and was typically found in the midst of helping others.  If you were close to Jesse you knew he was always running late, but he was never late to run to the aid of a friend.  Whether it be fixing a friend’s fence or working cattle on his parent’s ranch, he loved to give his time and gifts to others.

 He was a unique person who loved cars, Rock & Roll, and chocolate milk and was one of the few guys who could truly pull off a fanny pack. He was a list maker and had “to do” lists everywhere.  He had lists at work, home, and on his phone.   Above all, he loved his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and walked daily in his word.  On his latest “list” on his phone, a bible verse prominently held the number 1 spot.  It was 1 Corinthians 13 “And now these three remain:  faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”
