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.

Jesse's family has entrusted his care and cremation arrangements to Kevin J. Dusenbury, funeral director/owner of the Virgil L. Howard Funeral Home, Shinglehouse.

He definitely will be missed by his jokes and his kindness

I was so glad when Jesse moved back into the apartments where my mom lives. She thought so much of Jesse as well as she did Connie when she was alive. She loved kidding with Jesse and smarting around and yet she was so concerned for his health. I will never forget years ago he did some beef on an open fire for a picnic and allowed for me to join them. He didn't want to take my money but I was really insistent that he had to have it and I will never forget that he wanted his meat grilled just so. He was always so kind to my family and to my grandmother as well, many moons ago. Prayers for all of you as we grieve the loss of your loved on with you. He was one of a kind. Life will not be the same without Jesse here!!!
