Jesse Woodrow Scott

May 24, 1937 ~ March 7, 2019 (age 81)

Jesse Woodrow Scott, age 81 of Grand Rapids, passed away Thursday March 7th, 2019.

Jesse was born on May 24, 1937 in Mishawaka, Indiana to Jesse and Geraldine (Krillenberger) Scott, both of whom proceeded him in death.

He is also proceeded in death by his wife and soul mate, Anne (Alsover) Scott; beloved sisters-in-law, Nancy (Essink) Alsover, Louise (Alsover) Inman, and Sandra (Okaly) Scott; and dear brothers-in-law Joseph Lastufka and Roy Inman.

Jesse is survived by his sons, Dan (Melissa) Scott and Mike (Colleen) Scott; daughter Cathleen (Gregory) Schneider; sister Mary (Scott) Marshman; brothers, Thomas Scott and Kirk Scott; sister-in- law Marie (Alsover) Lastufka; brother-in-law William Alsover; Grandchildren, Cody Scott, Lindsey (Adam) Thull, Zachary (Tori) Scott, Molly (Joseph) Leone, Gentry (Molly) Schneider, Hannah (Alex) Gomez, Gretta Schneider and Dane Schneider; as well as many nieces and nephews.

After retiring from Advance Packaging, where he worked in sales for many years, Jesse and Anne enjoyed traveling and spending time with friends and family, especially in Orange Beach Alabama in the winter months and, during summer, at their cottage on Pickerel Lake in Newaygo Michigan.  Jesse was an avid fisherman and loved golf.  He also was known to have a very competitive spirit when it came to card games, including Bridge, Euchre and Cribbage.  Although he slowed down in his later years, Jesse always took time and effort to participate in activities with his children and grandchildren.  He also helped deliver Meals on Wheels with his granddaughter.  Those lucky enough to know him will miss Jesse’s generous spirit, quick wit and his endless supply of mints which he doled out to everyone.
