Jesse’s first calling in life was becoming a Funeral Director and Embalmer for close to 40 years. After many years in the funeral industry, he felt a second calling to join the medical industry and become a Licensed Practical Nurse. In his free time, Jesse enjoyed walking and spending time with his beloved dogs, Rusty and Tanner. Jesse was a devout Catholic and was very committed to his faith.

Jesse was preceded in death by his parents, Delton Lawrence Wheeler and Nelda Joy Wheeler; brothers, Boyd Layne Wheeler and Gary Dewayne Wheeler; niece, Christina Michelle Wheeler; paternal grandparents, John Phlegm Wheeler and Beulah Barrow Wheeler; and maternal grandparents, Floyd Gilbert Nicholson and Jessie Viola Larson. Left to cherish his memory are his brothers, Clinton Allen Wheeler, Daniel Lawrence Wheeler and wife, Shannon; sister, Chenena Kaye Martin and husband, Ben and several nieces and nephews.

The family suggests memorials be made to an animal rescue of your choice.
