Marsh, JesseIn loving memory of Jesse Marsh, 77, of Mesquite, NV.  He began his heavenly journey peacefully from his home surrounded by family and friends, Friday December 19, 2014.

He was born May 13, 1937 to Willie and Mary Alice Marsh, and was raised a farm boy in West Mississippi.  At the young age of 18 he joined the Air Force, which he chose to pursue as his life’s career. He proudly served in Vietnam from 1967 to 1968. He retired from the Air Force in 1975.

After his military retirement he moved to Las Vegas to pursue a career in the gaming industry.
