William Jesse Nunn, 55, of Waco, passed away Tuesday, November 17, 2020 at an area hospital, after a valiant battle with COVID-19.

Visitation: 12:00 noon  Saturday, November 21, at Bold Springs Cemetery, just outside of West, TX

Graveside Service: 1:00 p.m. Saturday, November 21, at Bold Springs Cemetery with Mitch Bynum, Pastor of High Point Cowboy Church, officiating.

Jesse was born December 28, 1964 in Waco. As a child, he learned the love of the outdoors from his parents, including many memorable camping trips to Colorado. He attended the Connally schools and graduated from Connally High School in 1984. Throughout his career, he worked as a Deputy Sheriff with Collin County Sheriff’s Department in McKinney, Texas and in the Emergency Department at Hillcrest Hospital before going to work for Fikes Wholesale as a Point of Sale Specialist in 2010 and later became their Technical Services Manager.

In addition, Jesse believed in community service. He served as the Fire Chief for the Elm Mott Volunteer Fire Department and volunteered his time with the West EMS Department over the years. He continued to enjoy time camping with family, as well as riding horses with James and Vickie. In addition, he enjoyed attending services at High Point Cowboy Church. His great joy, though, was always being with his family, especially his children and was he looking forward to holding his expected granddaughter.

He is survived by his parents, William Travis and Laura Gayle (Hobbs) Nunn of Lacy-Lakeview; his three children, William Trevor Nunn of West, Kathleen Elizabeth Nunn of Waco and Christopher Thomas Nunn and wife, Cassie of West. Jesse was also survived by his brothers, James Stacey Nunn and wife, Vickie of Riesel and John Bradley Nunn and his fiancée, Amanda Nichols of Waco; sister, Laura Jeanette (Nunn) Hebert and husband, Jon of Lorena; as well as numerous aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you consider donations in Jesse’s memory  to the West EMS, 411 Meadow Dr., West, TX  76691.
