Obituary for Jessie H. Watson

Jessie Harold Watson left to be with his Lord on Feb. 28, after a two-year battle with pancreatic cancer. Jessie was born on June 20, 1957 in Bastrop, LA. He and his wife, Carmon Watson, met in Jr. High and began dating in high school. They both played trumpet in the Bastrop High School Band, where they graduated from in 1976. Jessie and Carmon married in Springfield, Ohio on July 18, 1977. Earlier that year, Jessie joined the U.S. Air Force. He served from 1977 to 1981 and received an honorable discharge. Jessie and Carmon moved to California in 1981. He trained as an Electrician and was a member of IBEW Local 180. Jessie was a well-known member of the Vacaville community. He was a youth soccer coach, a regular attendee of local band and choir concerts, and an active member of Valley Church. Throughout his life, Jessie never shied away from trying new things, including yoga, ballroom dancing and African drumming. Jessie shared his warm and caring spirit with all of those he encountered. Even while battling cancer, he made friends of his nurses and doctors. Jessie's first priority was always his family. He is survived by his wife, Carmon Watson; his three daughters, Jessica Kahn (Kevin), Elizabeth Watson, and Margaret Watson; a brother and sisters; and many nieces and nephews across the country. A memorial service will be held for Jessie on March 6, at 10:30 a.m., at Valley Church at 5063 Maple Road, in Vacaville, followed by a Bar-B-Que at the family home. He will be laid to rest at Sacramento Valley National Cemetery in Dixon, Calif in a private ceremony.
