Jesse was a person who made a difference in the lives of everyone he touched. His smile, Australian hat, and signature “Howdy, Howdy” brought a smile to everyone when they saw him. Because of his faith in Jesus Christ, he took the command to love people seriously. As a coworker, he was always willing to do the extra to make your job easier and more efficient. Friends always knew that he was a text or phone call away. He was a loyal son and brother to his parents and siblings – always willing to listen. Jesse was a dad and husband that poured everything into his son and wife. Tucker, his son, was his world and you could tell. He wanted the best for him and spent his time helping to shape his character even at an early age. Jesse showered his wife, Beth, with love and support in every way he could from sending flowers to giving her personal time for floats, retail therapy, or whatever she needed. To Jesse, relationships were everything.

He is survived by his wife, Beth Paxson, and son, William “Tucker” Paxson. Also survived by: parents, William “Greg” and Beverly Paxson; brothers, John (Sarah) Paxson, Jack (Jessica) Paxson, Bob (Heather) Paxson; grandfather, Forest William Paxson, in-laws, Bobby and Sandra Bragg; brother-in-law, Robby (Rachel) Bragg. He was also a beloved “Uncle Jesse” to several nieces and nephews.

Jesse was preceded in death by his grandmother, Norma Paxson, and maternal grandparents Jack and Pauline Grose.

Pallbearers will be Samuel Hood, Matthew Houser, John Paxson, Jack Paxson, Bob Paxson, and Sam Hood.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Tucker Paxson Memorial Fund at any Regions Bank location.
