Jesse Kemmer

November 20, 1984 - November 08, 2014


On November 8, 2014, the Good Lord embraced Jesse Alexander Kemmer and raised him into Heaven. Jesse was a beloved husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend.

Jesse was born on November 20, 1984 to Vance and Marcia Kemmer in Fargo, ND. He graduated from West Fargo High School and went on to get a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management. Jesse was currently working as a service manager at Scheel’s Home and Hardware in Fargo.

Jesse married his wife Sabrina (Jansen) Kemmer and became a step-father to Leona Reitan on May 31, 2013. They bought their first home together in May 2014 in Fargo, ND. On July 16, 2014 they then welcomed their precious baby girl, Abigale Alexandra Kemmer.

Jesse shared a passion for golf and hunting with his father. He greatly looked forward to the day he could teach his daughter to hold her first golf club. Jesse also enjoyed playing poker and hanging out with his friends. Jesse had a talent for playing the drums and enjoyed some late night jams with his brother, Jake and their garage band, The Yesterdays.

Although Jesse left this earth far too early, his spirit will live on in those that loved him so deeply.

Jesse is survived by his wife, Sabrina (Jansen) Kemmer, and their two children, Leona and Abigale Kemmer; his parents, Vance and Marcia Kemmer; brothers, Chad Gefroh and Jake Kemmer; sisters, Stefanie (Matt) Gefroh-Ellison and Jenna Kemmer.

Jesse was preceded in death by his grandfathers, Duane Kemmer and Marvin Haugen.
