JESSOP- Nathan David

JESSOP – Nathan David
January 23, 1976 – September 30, 2010

Nathan was tragically taken from us as a result of a motorcycle accident. He was an amazing Stone and Tile Setter, working for his second family at LDA & Associates. Nathan’s passion was the outdoors. He loved kayaking, mountain biking, snowboarding, camping and hiking. Although Nathan didn’t have his motorcycle for long it was a new found passion. In memory of Nathan and his passion for kayaking, the first annual Commemorative Paddle took place at Sheep Falls in Kananaskis Country on Sunday, October 3, 2010. Nathan touched so many lives. His generosity and infectious smile will be missed but never forgotten.

He is sadly missed by his loving wife and soul mate Jolene Merkens, daughter Caitlyn Merkens and adoring son Rowan Jessop; loving Mom and Dad Valerie and David of Uxbridge Middlesex, UK; loving sister Tanya and husband Bruce and nieces Emma and Madison of Marlow Bucks, England; loving brothers Warren and wife Ria, nieces Enigma and Kirsty and nephew Adam of Javea, Spain, Aaron of London, England; and his faithful companion Guss.

Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Park Memorial Chapel (5008 Elbow Drive S.W.) on Tuesday, October 12, 2010 at 2:30 p.m. Forward condolences through Special thanks for all the love and support from Nathan’s many adoring friends.

In living memory of Nathan Jessop, a tree will be planted at Big Hill Springs, Cochrane, AB by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES Park Memorial Chapel, 5008 ELBOW DRIVE S.W. Telephone: (403) 243-8200.

  2. David and Carol Ann Pocock :

    We are very sorry to hear about Nathan’s tragic accident. Nathan attended Sait and worked with our son Matthew and also did our tile in our kitchen. I talked to him several times as he was Matt’s close friend and I had dealings with him at the apprenticeship office. He was always outgoing, friendly and brought a smile to my face whenever we talked. We extend our condolences to the family and we will keep you in our prayers.

  3. I was shocked to hear about the tragic loss of what can only be described as a gentleman with a passion for adventure and a huge heart. Nathan had many kind words for me earlier this year after the death of my wife Christine. I can’t believe he is now gone.

    My thoughts and prayers go out to his family

  4. I had only met Nathan one time, he shared wonderful stories with me and we talked for a long time. Even after just one meeting I know I will not forget him. He was a lovely and unique man. My husband and I are very sorry for your loss.

    Our thoughts are with you all,
    Lori and Dan Geneau

  5. To all that knew Nathan with his vigor for life and living each day like it was his last, I know that all the people that Nathan was in contact with lived life vicariously through Nathan and looked forward to having a pint and hearing his latest adventure, with his outlook and his way at laughing at himself and the situation at hand. We will forever remember his laugh and smile, and in turn will bring a smile to our face with our own story’s that Nathan shared with us.
