Wisconsin Rapids
Wood County
Wisconsin, USA
Death: Dec. 2, 2006
Anbar, Iraq

Lance Corporal Tillery was from Vesper, Wisconsin and the youngest of four children. As a youth he played little league baseball. But as he grew, he took his joy in life from the simple things in life, like his friends and family. Jesse was polite, engaging and always had a smile on his face. He liked reading, camping, traveling, and video games. Jesse is remembered as someone who abundantly possessed three things during his life: tremendous contentment, commitment and hope. He graduated from Lincoln High School in Wisconsin Rapids in June 2005 and joined the Marines in August 2005. He was assigned to 2nd Assault Amphibian Battalion, 2nd United States Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. He joined the 2nd Battalion in February and was deployed to Iraq in September. He is survived by his parents, Martin and Kathleen (Usherwood) Tillery; two brothers, Army Specialist James (Ashley) of Fort Riley, Kansas, Army Specialist Jared in Iraq (fiancee Mary Dague of Fort Lewis, Washington); one sister, Joelle (Ryan) Mayers of Richmond, Virginia; one nephew, Liam Tanner Mayers; and his maternal grandfather, John Usherwood of Emily, Minnesota. He was preceded in death by his maternal grandmother, Gladys Usherwood, and his paternal grandparents, Charles and Velma Tillery. Jesse's brother James served two tours of duty in Iraq. Jesse was awarded the Purple Heart, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal as well as the National Defense Medal. He will be honored with a memorial at the High Ground Veteran's Memorial in Neillsville, Wisconsin. Original bio, written by: Sue
