Jesse Clements

July 5, 1925 — November 25, 2016

Mr. Jesse Clements, age 91, of Cedartown, GA passed away Friday, November 25, 2016. He was born on July 5, 1925, a son of the late James and Lizze Mae Briskey Clements. He was also preceded in death by his wife, Ruby Lee Weaver Clements; brother, James Clements; sister, Owana Humber; uncle, Fletcher Wink (Ted) Letlow; and son in law, Jerry Bowen.

Jesse is survived by his daughters: Barbara Bowen, Becky Millican and her husband Kent; grandson, Shay Harrell and his wife Tina and their children: Benjamin Harrell and Zella Harrell; granddaughter, Jolee Gray and her husband Davy and their children: Ramplee Colbert and Bex Gray. Jesse attended First Baptist Church of Cedartown and was a member of the L.D. Wheeler Bible Class.

Jesse at a young age served in the U.S. Navy from 1943-1945 then was employed at Goodyear in Cedartown, Georgia nineteen years and thereafter worked as an agent for Allstate Insurance Company in Rome, Georgia for 43 years where he earned many awards and honors during his career.

He converted to Christ in his teens and was faithful in serving Christ, his church and the Cedartown community in many Christian activities. For over 50 years, he taught Sunday School and was ordained as a deacon at First Baptist Church in Cedartown during the tenure of Dr. Hugh L. Smith. Jesse was active and financially supportive in starting Worldview Baptist Church at 500 College Drive, Cedartown, Georgia. He also provided annual financial support to the Haggai Institute which resulted in contributions for the training of more than 50 persons from around the world to return to their respective communities and teach the Gospel of Jesus Christ was exemplified in that he gave over 50 percent of his income for various Christian ministries. Jesse took pride and was active daily in one of his last projects, Community Share, which he supported financially and met each morning at 7:00 a.m. for bible study and prayer with the men in the program.

Jesse is popularly known as “the man who buys and sells on WGAA’s Swap Shop” and giving the profit to charity. In addition to his faithful service to Christ, perhaps Jesse is best remembered for telling others: “The best news you are going to hear today is that Jesus loves you and so do I.”

In accordance with his wishes, his body was donated to Emory School of Medicine. Memorial services will be held Saturday, December 3, 2016 at 1:00 PM in the sanctuary of the First Baptist Church of Cedartown with Dr. John Haggai, Dr. Ken Humber, Dr. David Taylor officiating and Mrs. Yuri Melendez will be delivering the eulogy.
