Jesse was born on January 27, 1991 in Templeton, Ca., the son of Joel Stephen and Cherie Lynn (Pitt) Snyder. He was married on August 18, 2012 in Stringtown, Mo. to Jessica Marie Wunderlich.
Jesse spent his young childhood on the Central Coast of California where he enjoyed time at the beach. He moved to Jefferson City, Missouri in 2004 with his family, graduating from Eugene High School in 2010.
Jesse recently started working for Steady Paws, where he served the capacity of Facility Supervisor and was previously employed with Tyler’s Lock and Key for four years.
Jesse loved an eclectic mix of music and was a gifted musician, proficient in multiple string instruments. He was very artistic and hand painted his impressive D&D miniatures collection, a game he loved to play. Jesse loved to be in costume, making Halloween his absolute favorite holiday complete with family costumes and making Comicon an event he awaited with excitement. Jesse had a mind for numbers and there wasn’t a problem that he could not solve in his head. An inquisitive boy, Jesse was a very deep thinker even in his youth. He weighed his options, assessed the situation and made a calculated decision in all aspects of his life. He enjoyed a heated debate and could even be called stubborn. He was a man of substance and strong moral fiber. He was passionate in his convictions and was largely driven by justice. Most of all, Jesse was an attentive, loving and dedicated father. He enjoyed playing, teaching and spending quality time with his two children, and spent many hours playing Mario with his daughter. Jesse’s inviting smile, tender heart and protective nature will be sorely missed by his family and friends.
Survivors include: his wife, Jessica; one daughter, Alaina Jayne Snyder; one son, Jace Liam Snyder; his parents, Joel and Cherie Snyder; one brother, Jordan Snyder (wife, Britni); paternal grandparents, Jim and Rita Snyder; maternal grandparents, Ray and Kathy Pitt; niece, Olivia Grace Snyder; nephew, Jacob Ryan Snyder; father-in-law, Lee Roy Wunderlich; mother-in-law, Brenda Wunderlich; sister-in-law, Nicole Brewer (husband, Matthew); and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
