Jesse Ray James, 26, went to be with the Lord on Thursday, June 23, 2022. Jesse was the son of James Russell Thomas and Stacy Hall Thomas. He was a graduate of Washington Center school and attended Capitol Health daycare. Jesse loved his iPad and riding motorcycles with his dad. He was always happy and brought joy to everyone he met. He was known for his handshakes and “flirting” with the ladies. His contagious love and joy of life will be missed by everyone who knew him. Surviving, in addition to his parents are, two brothers, Jacob James with wife Anna, and Justin James; a sister, Jillian James; two nieces, Daisy Fields and Belva James; and two nephews, Taylor James and Maverick James. A Celebration of Jesse’s Life will be 5 o’clock Monday at Fletcher Funeral Service. The family will receive friends an hour prior. Memorials may be made to Shriner’s Hospital for Children, 950 W Faris Rd, Greenville, SC 29605. The family would like to extend a special thank you to Julieanne and Kayla at Bright Star for your exceptional care.
