Jesse Shepard Packard
May 07, 1983 ‒ December 16, 2015
Jesse Shepard Packard, age 32, lost his 10 month battle with cancer December 16, 2015.
Jesse was born in Galion, Ohio, but his passion for travel took him all over Europe and South America. He loved exploring new places, experiencing their cultures, and he was especially gifted in learning their languages. He also loved hiking, exploring waterfalls, and snowboarding. He will always be remembered for his talent in playing and creating music and his interest in art, photography and architecture. Most of all he loved laughing and hanging out with his friends.
As one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, he also spent time teaching others about the Bible and his hope for the future when “the meek shall inherit the Earth”.
He graduated from OSU with a degree in Computer Sciences. He taught English in Ecuador and Chile and was working on a degree in Linguistics when he got sick.
He is survived by his parents Michael and Rebecca Packard, two brothers, Joel Packard of Boulder, Colorado and Micah (Ashley) Packard of Cañar, Ecuador, his cousin Andrea, hosts of wonderful close friends and his especially dear friend Kimmi.
A memorial service will be held for Jesse at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 915 Portland Way North, Galion, Ohio on December 26th at 2:00 p.m., officiated by his brother Micah. Visitation will start at 12:00 p.m.. Please bring or send pictures and written stories of your adventures with Jesse to share with the family.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Kingdom Hall to be forwarded to Watchtower Bible and Tract Society.
