Jesse Aaron Gillingham, age 29 of Taylorsville Utah, suddenly left this world and his loved ones in the early morning of January 2, 2020 and returned to his Heavenly home.\r\n\r\nJesse was born on October 13, 1990 in Provo, Utah to Heather Christine Roberts. He is the older brother of Kailey Alisha Gillingham, Nalani Ruth Gillingham, and Braden Michael (Kassie) Gillingham.\r\n\r\nHe is the uncle of two nieces, Rhiley & Rosie, along with his nephew, David. He is the grandson of William “Bill” Lewis (Sandi) Roberts and Carol Jeanne Allen Cordova.\r\n\r\nJesse married McKenna Burnham in October of 2018. Together they have a beautiful baby girl Emilia, born June of 2019.\r\n\r\nHe also leaves behind many cousins, uncles and aunts in Utah and Montana, as well as his grandma, Karra Johnson Gillingham; father, Jason Richard Gillingham; and 3 younger half siblings in California (Bryce, Logan & Layla Gillingham).\r\n\r\nJesse has always been passionate about the outdoors, hunting, fishing and camping. He also loves movies, music, anything with a motor, travel, the adrenaline rush and especially our country.\r\n\r\nThings Jesse held close to his heart were: spending time with his family and friends, making memories with those close to him, and most importantly becoming a father, which he would say, “it’s the best thing that ever happened to me having baby Emma”.\r\n\r\nJesse may have been a little rough around the edges, but we all know it was because of how protective he was over his loved ones. Behind the scenes he was a kind and gentle person. Our lives will not be the same without him. We love you Jesse, and always will. Rest in bliss and peace, without pain, knowing you will forever be on our minds and in our hearts.\r\n\r\nServices will be held on Saturday, January 11, 2020 at the LDS Church from 2:00-4:00 p.m. located at 3045 West Bernina Drive, Taylorsville, Utah.\r\n\r\n2:00 p.m.- Condolences and Family Prayer\r\n3:00 p.m.- Celebration of Life Service\r\n4:00 p.m.- Mingle \r\n\r\nPlease bring any pictures or mementos you are willing to share with the family. \r\n\r\nGraveside services will be at a later date.
