It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Jim Jesson on October 2, 2019. Jim was born at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops BC on April 29, 1940. He grew up with his older sister Anne and younger sister Judy, moving down the valley from Black Pines to Noble Creek to Westsyde. Jim loved animals and birds and they loved him. He fed the birds and talked to the deer out the back every morning. He took his sidekick, Tuxie the cat with him up until Tuxie died in June of this year. He treasured his time with Roxy and Dale especially camping at the lakes! Jim’s passion was his vehicles. He kept them in pristine condition, even his Western Star. His working life started with Interior Contracting then on to line driving with Chapmans, then owner/operator of J. Jesson Trucking, Sand & Gravel hauling. He then worked for Interior roads during the winter plowing and sanding roads. Followed by a short time with Vankam and King Transport piloting. In retirement he plowed the sidewalk and driveways up the street with his ATV. Jim was predeceased by his parents Bob and Dusty Jesson and his sister Judy Hillard.
