Jesse Edmonds, age 91 of Terrell, Texas, peacefully went to be with his Heavenly Father on Tuesday April 21,2020.
Jesse joined the Air Force right after High School - in his 20 years’ service spent 15 years overseas – one period away from the states for six and a half years. His proudest accomplishment was when Congress approved two addition senior grades for his Enlisted Corp. Jesse was on the first list for both and made the highest grade “Chief Master Sergeant” with only 14 years’ service time. He claimed he jumped over 350 thousand of his contemporaries to obtain that grade. Jesse retired from the Air Force at the age of 38 and went right into the Federal Civil Service where he served 22 years. His last four years he was Chairman of a NATO working group. Jesse is survived by his loving wife of 22 years, Joan Edmonds and children. Romans 5:1
