Jesse Mason Hook
Dec. 31, 1975-Oct. 1, 2017
Jesse Mason Hook, age 41, passed away in the early hours of Sunday, October 1, 2017 from complications of pneumonia in Carson City, where he has resided for the past 26 years.
Jesse was surrounded by his parents, Robert & Donna Hook, and siblings, Dustin, Andrea, Melissa, and Travis.
He was adored by his 9 nieces and 4 nephews – “Uncle” was his proudest title. Jesse was born December 31, 1975 in Tarzana, California and was a playful and vibrant boy until a tragic accident left him severely disabled.
As news of his condition spread, a floodgate of volunteers within the community and local LDS congregations came to assist with daily home therapies for Jesse – which lasted for five years – and provided incalculable support, love, and enduring friendships for our family during such a challenging time. Our warmest thanks to those saintly helping hands so long ago and to those who have provided stellar care for him at Eagle Valley Children’s Home in Carson City. We thank you for your Christ-like service.
Since his accident, the influence Jesse has had on countless people – without him uttering a single word – is humbling. Our loss is profound, and yet we rejoice in the reality that he now stands tall and noble and free from earthly limitations. Funeral services will be held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints chapel at 11 AM Saturday, October 7, 2017 at 1095 Spruce St. in Minden, Nevada.
