In memory of
Jesse A Carper
Jesse A. Carper went to play music with his heavenly father Sunday, March 29, 2015 at the age of 26. Jesse was born August 1, 1988 in Salem VA. He grew up with an instrument in his hand and managed to put it down long enough to play his favorite sports, football and baseball. Jesse is a 5th generation musician in the family, who had many friends and never met a stranger. Jesse participated in alot of activities for such a young age with his music. He was an avid fisherman and hunter and a special musician and singer that touched many hearts throughout the United States. He will be greatly missed and we hope that he has encouraged many young people to carry on his legacy.
