Obituary of Willard Earnest “Skip” Jessee, Jr.
Willard Earnest “Skip” Jessee, Jr., 76, of East Windsor, passed from this earth on Thursday, August 19, 2021 following a courageous battle with liver cancer.
Much of Skip’s life’s interests centered around his love for work. He was surveyor, construction boss, construction company owner and a jack-of-all-trades. There was little that Skip couldn’t do nor loved doing. He put his signature on many roads, bridges and buildings throughout the State of New Jersey, Tennessee and Missouri. Skip had a real love for gardening, boating, antiquing, and antique restorations.
Skip loved family and friends. He is survived by his wonderful, loving, caregiving wife, Peggy, who never left his side through any battle with his bad health; his daughter and son-in law, Jill and Mike Mclatchy of Schwenksville, PA; his beloved grandson, Aidan, who meant the world to him; his stepson, Kyle Cornelius of Spring, TX; his brother and sister-in law, Barry and Brenda Jessee of Fairview, UT; and countless nephews, nieces, and cousins across the country.
Visitation for family and friends will be held on Friday, August 27, 2021, from 11:00 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. at Simplicity Funeral and Cremation Services at Glackin Chapel, 136 Morrison Ave., Hightstown, NJ. Words of Remembrance will begin at 12:30 p.m.
Interment will take place at the East Windsor Cemetery.
