Jesse Williams - U.S. Military

Jesse Williams
Staff Sgt. Jesse L. Williams, age 30, of Elkhart, Indiana, died on December 17, 2013, in Now Bahar, Afghanistan.

Jesse was assigned to Headquarters Troop, Regimental Support Squadron, 2nd Cavalry Regiment, Vilseck, Germany.

Jesse was in a helicopter which crashed. Six U.S. soldiers died in this tragedy. The incident is under investigation. The helicopter crashed and then was attacked by enemy insurgents.

Jesse Williams had just been promoted to staff sergeant on December 1, 2013.

He was on his third deployment and had originally joined the military to work on
Father, place Jesse on the
Stairway to Heaven 

Friends describe Jesse as uptempo. If he was a friend, he was a friend for life. 

He loved spending time with his 6-year-old daughter, Madison. 

He had always loved the military. It was his chosen path in life.

His family will forever grieve his loss.

Jesse is survived by many loving friends and relatives including his mother, Debbie Passerallo, and his daughter, Madison (age 6).

Thank you for serving, Jesse.

Pray without ceasing unto God for an end to this war in Afghanistan. It is enough. We are sick with grief for men like Jesse. He would not have died in a helicopter accident in Afghanistan if there was no war in Afghanistan. God give us peace.

Pray that Jesse is in heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
