With overwhelming sadness, the family of Jesse Jaret Nichol announces his unexpected passing on Wednesday December 19, 2018 in his 38th year. Jesse was born November 30, 1980 on his brother Tyler’s birthday (1978) in Chatham, Ontario. He is the second son of John and Karen Nichol (Nicholson). He will be forever missed by brothers Tyler, Boyd and Daniel.
Jesse lived in Gibson, B.C. with his soulmate Jaimee and their daughter Louella who always called him Papa and was the light of his life.
He will be sadly missed by his nephews Brett, Eli, Oliver, Ezra and Benjimin, by his nieces Leah, Vanessa and Ruby, his grandfather Harvey Nicholson as well as several aunts, uncles and cousins. He was predeceased by his grandparents Shirley Nicholson, Bob and Eugenia Nichol.
Jesse had his own business in property maintenance. Eventually he went into caregiving and found this more to his liking. Jesse was a man of many talents. He was passionate about his music and wherever he went he had his guitar or some other instrument with him. He was very entertaining and expressive in the songs and music he made and the many, many instruments he taught himself to play. He had a real creative way about himself that shone through in his life, his love for his family, his pets, his music, his paintings, his jewelry, his sculptures, his art and anything he put his hands to. He brought so much into our lives with his loving presence, his happiness and joy of life. His free spirit, his smile and his laughter will be missed by all those fortunate to have known him.
Jesse gave his body to research to help others.
We will always miss you…and be so grateful for your songs and music that you have given to us…forever in our hearts.
Family and friends are invited to a Celebration of Life officiated by Pastor Doug Rowley at The Gathering Place, 66 Main Street West in Ridgetown on Saturday January 19, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. A luncheon will follow.
Friends and family wishing to remember Jesse through a memorial donation are asked to consider helping to provide the things in life that he himself wanted to provide for the light of his life, Louella.
