Jesse Ellis Tait
Birth: Nov. 15, 1950
San Pedro
Los Angeles County
California, USA
Death: May 20, 2011
Houston County
Georgia, USA

Jesse was a fantastic "Big Brother!" In grade school he protected me, in High School he didn't avoid me, and when he went into the Army, got married and started his life, he never forgot me.

Even I moved half way around the world, my wife received regular emails from Jesse, often daily. Jesse had a great sense of humor too!

Jesse Served his country in the Army for more than a decade. His military service took him from Asia to Europe and sometimes forced him to be away from his family to serve America.

On August 5, 1972, Jesse married the former LaMona Jean Bebe in a Log Church. A Log Church Jesse had helped build just the month before, in Manitou Springs, Colorado. Needless to say, their wedding was the official first function in the new Church.

Jesse and LaMona stayed married, until death did them part, September 2, 1999. Their home was built on love in Colorado Springs. LaMona's family called Jesse "JT".

I called my brother Jess. My son Jesse is named in his honor. I now have a second son, Jess, who has the same easy going attitude as his uncle.

He was a loving dad to two sons also, Jeff and Chis.

Later in life, he married Sarah, whom he loved till his death, and Sarah love Jesse too. In a world of divorce, Jesse knew none of that.

Our Sister Lynn wrote me...

Dear Loved Ones,

My brother Jesse is in Heaven now. He passed away at 1:00 p.m. yesterday. Sarah said that he looked very peaceful.

Sarah told me that the cause of death was a blood clot which went into his lung and exploded.

Sarah also said that she's made preparations for Jesse's cremation per his instructions. Since Jesse had already purchased the plot next to Lamona's grave, Sarah is sending his remains to CO to be buried there.

I cannot think of better words than that. Jesse was an humble man, who loved life, and those around him loved him. He will be missed by many and I miss my brother greatly.
