Jesse Edward Harrelson 55, of Oroville, Washington passed away unexpectedly on March 24, 2019 in Minot, North Dakota.

Jesse was born in California to Thomas and Clara Harrelson on May 15, 1963. They moved to Robbins, NC in 1965. He spent most of his life in Washington State and was an outdoor enthusiast that enjoyed camping, fishing, and hiking. He was a member of Tonasket Washington Seventh Day Adventist Church. He attended his church regularly and held the office of Superintendent. Jesse was employed by a Service Transport Company in Williston, North Dakota and was very dedicated to his job.

Jesse was very health focused and vegan for many years. He was passionate towards politics and was a strong, committed conservative that cared for the well-being of his country. His future dreams were to become a pilot and to own his own tractor-trailer.

The family is at peace in knowing that Jesse (Dad) was a born again Christian and one day will be in his humble presence.
