his loving family.
Mr. Chesser was born December 27, 1954 in Houston, Texas to Jessie Willard and Lenny Sofie
Chesser. Jay was known by friends and family as “Bucky.” Bucky was a long time resident of
Katy, Texas and graduated from Fredericksburg High School in 1974. He began his career when
he started Chesser Insulation with his brother Buddy before he graduated high school. He
continued his career in construction insulation until he ultimately founded his own company,
Diversified Thermal. Bucky was excellent at building and repairing things and truly had a knack
for construction. His tools of choice were duck tape and WD40. He was an avid saltwater
fisherman and loved to captain deep sea fishing trips. He had a zest for life and got a thrill out of
water sports and boats. He had a passion for music and was an excellent drum player. Bucky
lived life to the fullest and loved those around him with a full and open heart. He also cherished
time spent with his family and friends. His time with his grandchildren was extra special to him.
Bucky was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Jess E. “Gene” Chesser; Sister Linda
Sanders. He leaves behind his loving wife of 31 years, Yvonne Chesser of Katy, TX; Sons,
