Jesse S. Wall III

Jesse S. Wall III

MONTROSS—Jesse S. Wall III, beloved son, brother and nephew, was called to his eternal home on Thursday, June 25, 2020. 

Born in Fort Ord, California, on January 5, 1970, he leaves his parents, retired Lt. Col. Jesse S. Wall Jr. (Marcia); Darleen Nelson (Rhon); sister, Lauren Foster (Casey); brothers, Ian Wall and Michael Wall; stepsister, Nanette Mason (Arnie); stepbrother, Howard Nelson (Laurie); aunts Myra Downing (Joe) and Margaret Wilson (Will); and uncles, Carl Wall (Nancy), Bruce Blay (Sabreena) and Scott Blay; as well as numerous cousins, nieces and nephews. 

His brother, Robert Wall; uncle, Barney Blay; and grandparents, Jesse and Beulah Wall, and Othal and Katherine Blay, predeceased him.

 For many years, Jesse lived in the San Francisco Bay Area of California where he was assistant to various Gap Headquarters executives over that time. He moved to Virginia only a short while before an insidious spinal ailment took his mobility bit by bit to the point where he was paralyzed from the chest down.

Undaunted, Jesse used technology to pursue language courses and other interests that would challenge his immense intellect. He was the technology guru for his older family members.

Jesse was an avid reader and quick wit, with a dry sense of humor. Though not always vocal about his feelings, his actions made clear how dear his family were to him. While his shining light has moved to a higher plane, his memory will be a comfort to those he leaves behind.

 Interment will be in Washington state near his grandparents, Jesse S. Wall Sr. and Beulah Wall. Those wishing to make memorial contributions in Jesse’s memory may make them to Mercy Ships, P.O. Box 2020, Garden Valley, TX 75771, or online at

Welch Funeral Home – Marks Chapel, Warsaw, handled the arrangements.
