Jesse M. Leverett                             "Gone but never forgotten"

SHINGLEHOUSE, Pa.---Jesse Martin Leverett, 58, of Shinglehouse, passed away on Friday, May 1, 2020, in Olean General Hospital, Olean, N.Y., after a long illness.

Born on Friday, November 24, 1961 in Bradford, he was a son of Albert and Constance Loucks Leverett.

One of Jesse's greatest joys in life was being the owner of Jake's Place in Eldred.  He enjoyed fishing out on the lake with his brother, Al, and also enjoyed going to auctions and playing bingo.  He loved taking his girls to the races when they were young.  He loved to cook.  He was a die hard fan  of the Buffalo Bills.  Jesse had a great sense of humor and had a few but very close friends.  He showed respect to everyone he met.  He will be sorely missed.

Jesse is the beloved father to four daughters, Ann, Jessica, Kristy, and Holly; and grandfather to thirteen beautiful grandchildren.  He is also survived by two sisters, Bonita "Bonnie" (Ted) Mix and Lois (Ronald) Bennett; his beloved, Debbie George; and several nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, Jesse was predeceased by a brother, Al Leverett.

In keeping with Jesse's wishes there will be no public visitation.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Shinglehouse Volunteer Ambulance Association, PO Box 98, Shinglehouse, PA 16748.
