Place of birth: Iron Mountain,Michigan
Religious affiliation: Muslim
My son Jesse was a wonderful human being .He was loving and kind and caring . He was taken from our family way too soon at the age of 29.He became a father at the age of 24 to his now 5 year old son Liam .
He was born on November 29 1991 in Iron Mountain ,Michigan and was a lifelong resident altho he also resided in Cortland ,New York and Shenandoah ,Iowa for awhile also .
He attended Iron Mountain High School and graduated in 2016.
In his all-too- brief time with us,He touched many lives and made many friends,of all ages,sex,and races. He had strong love for his family and great loyalty to his friends.He had a wonderful sense of humor,a beautiful free spirit ,and was always generous and kind to those less fortunate than him .
Jesse believed there was more to the world than what we can see,and that all things and all people are connected.He was very open -minded thoughtful and inquisitive,and non-judgemental .
He was also passionate about music ,loved to read,esp about Egypt and different faiths .He was a HUGE fan of Drew Brees and New Orleans Saints football.
Jesse had worked in New York as a dishwasher,at B’s Cafe in Iron mountain also as well as Romagnolis ,and as a laborer at Grede Foundry, Pine Mountain Ski resort ,Mcdonalds,Super one Foods and Econo Foods.
Always thinking of others,Jesses final gifts were realized by honoring his wish to serve as an organ donor.He ended up saving 4 peoples lives for which i will always be proud of him for yet
also humbled by something beautiful coming out of something so sad.
Its been my honor to be his mom for 29 years and i thank God that i was. Theres a hole in my heart now that nothing or Noone can ever fill .i lost my mother in 2006 to breast / bone cancer but Nothing can prepare a parent or sibling for the loss of their son/ brother. I pray that Allah takes wonderful care of my sweet loving son and that hes at peace and happy like he so deserves
I love you Jesse Douglas Tolbert.
Now,forever and Always .Your brother Jason and sisters Angela and Jamie and all family and friends who loved you carry you in our hearts always . God bless you and Fly high my beautiful angel . Our Love is Infinite.❤❤❤❤
