Jesse Martin, 19, a lifelong resident of the Pittsfield and Mickle Hill areas, and most recently of Guys Mills, Pa., passed away suddenly October 22, 2012.
Jesse was born on March 12, 1993 in Corry, Pa. and was an active young man who had many interests and hobbies. His love for his family, especially his younger sisters, was very important for him. He loved being outside, whether it was riding his motorcycle, canoeing, spending time in the woods, campfires, or fishing. Jesse also enjoyed spending time with his friends, many of whom he considered family. Jesse idolized Johnny Cash. His favorite song from him, that always had to be played was "The Man Comes Round". Many other of his favorite things to do were eat shrimp, watch the "The Breakfast Club", lift weights, and eat healthy. Jesse loved all creatures big and small, especially his lizard Lizzy, and turtles. He will be greatly missed by his family and many friends.
