Gordon Bruce Jessee passed away early Sunday morning, April 30, 2023, peacefully at home of natural causes.
He was born on July 4, 1936 in Castlewood, Virginia to William G. and Nannie Jessee. After high school graduation he and his friends joined the United States Air Force where he attained the rank of Chief Master Sergeant. In 1967 Gordon was assigned to Cheyenne Mountain Air Force Base in Colorado Springs where he and his family made their home.
Gordon was a member of East United Methodist Church (EUMC), and was a man who loved his God, family, and country. He enjoyed coin collecting, gardening, researching genealogy and watching his sports teams: the Colorado Avalanche, Denver Broncos, and Air Force Falcons.
He is survived by his loving wife, Joy, married for 67 years; children: Sharon Liss (Mark), Randall Jessee, Carol Jessee Stallings; grandchildren: Jason Liss (Kimberly), Ryan Liss (Lindsey), Tyler Liss (Brittany), Jonathan Jessee (Anna), Christopher Stallings (Erin), Brendan Stallings; sisters: Peggy LaFoon (B.L.), Hazel Million; and numerous nieces and nephews.
