Jesse Simon

jesse simon
Jesse A. Simon was born August 17, 1990 to Duane Simon and Lori Roesler. He passed away unexpectedly on May 27, 2018. Jesse lived all of his life in Fargo. He graduated from Woodrow Wilson where he met Robin Simon, the love of his life. They married twelve years later on August 25, 2017. Jesse had a bond with his brother that was unbeatable, their love was clear to all. Snapchat was Jesse’s special way of communicating with those he loved and this was clear in his daily snaps to his mother Lori saying “love you Mom, have a great day”. He brightened up every room he entered with his huge smile and hugs for all. A true Broncos fan at heart, he enjoyed watching games with those he loved most. He also spent his time skateboarding with his lifelong friends. Being a godfather was one of his greatest joys. The relationship he had with Leo was one that inspired many. He was hard working and loved getting up in the morning to go to work. He recently stated there was no place he would rather work than DS Beverages. He never forgot to count his blessings. Jesse is survived by his wife, Robin, mother Lori (Scott) Roesler, Fargo, brother, Jordan Simon, sister, Courtnie Roesler; in-laws, Rudy and Elisa Martinez, grandparents, Allan and Twila Essler, Kenmare, ND; uncles, Kim (Sandra) Essler, Jerome (Anita) Essler, Paul (Stacia) Essler, Sharon (Greg) Schindel; godson Leo Crespo, and several cousins. Jesse is preceded in death by his father, Duane; uncle, Ken Simon; grandparents Ken and Veronica Simon; godson Amaru Crespo; cousin, Robyn Essler.

Memories Timeline


  1. My deepest condolences. Jesse was one of the delivery drivers I check in at Hornbacher’s. We always got along well, and I respected him a great deal. Being close to my son’s age, I think I developed a kindred spirit with him.

    I pray that his family will find peace.

  2. My condolences to the family.   Losing a loved one is very difficult.   May you find comfort in God’s promise to wipe all tears from our faces and swallow up death forever.   Isaiah 25:8

  3. Robin, Scott, Lori, Jordan & Courtnie –
    My heartfelt sympathy goes out to you all. May the memories of Jesse live on in your hearts forever and give you strength, and the love of family and friends help you through the days ahead. May he rest in peace.

  5. My heart breaks and bursts with love each moment someone reminises about Jesse. He was that guy, the true friend. The guy people gravitated to, to regroup or whatever, knowing he was unconditional. Jesse was genuine. He was the rock to so many. His smile was yours, Lori, so very touching, infectious and memorable. Jesse will live on in so many hearts. One of those is mine. I love you Lori, Jordan and Robin and all the family and friends of Jesse.

    Words cannot express the shock and sadness we are all feeling at D-S Beverages with the passing of Jesse. Jesse was hard working, energetic, and passionate about his job at D-S Beverages – and about life in general. More importantly though he had a kind, compassionate, loving spirit that truly defined him as a good man.

  24. Robin,

    It’s easy to see why you would fall in love with such a fun guy. You have some beautiful pictures.

    You are beautiful in life and your photos reflect the inner beauty and joy you two shared. So sorry for the loss of such a fun person that you have shared your life with for years. RIP Jesse.

  25. We are so sorry to hear the news-didn’t see the notice until today or we would have been at the funeral service. At a loss for words, but praying for your strength in the days to come.

  26. Lori, we worked together years ago. Our kids went to daycare together and then Woodrow Wilson. Even though it’s been years since we’ve seen each other i recognized Jesse’s name. I’m so sorry for your loss. Thinking of you in this time of sadness. The video shows the wonderful young man he grew to be. God Bless.

  27. Baby,
    I miss you so so so much and as the days go on it doesn’t get any easier. I would give anything just to see you again. Your smile, your laugh, our bickering, you asking me to scratch your back everynight while watching our movie Starsky & Hutch. Our love story is something I will always hold tight & never ever forget. My love, I will love you always & forever. Forever I will be your wife.
