TUER – Jesse David

April 24, 1979 – August 23, 2010

“I’ll lend you for a little while, a child of mine He said”

It is with great sadness and grief that David and Linda Tuer announce the sudden and tragic loss of their wonderful son, Jesse David Tuer of Calgary, on Monday, August 23, 2010 at the age of 31 years.

Jesse was the loving father to his son, Jacob (age 4) and daughter, Mason (age 2). He adored their mother, Amy. Jesse was a beloved brother to Darcy and Adrienne Tuer, Shannon and Michael MacLeod, and Matthew Tuer. Their children Griffin Tuer, Ruby Tuer, and Rex MacLeod will miss many things without Jesse in their lives. He loved and was loved by a large family of aunts and uncles, cousins, and nieces and nephews, together with his Grandfather Marty and Grandma Alice. His family extended to Amy’s parents, Patti and Peter Naaykens and brother Adam, who helped him in his life with Amy. We have all come together to support one another as we mourn the terrible loss we feel.

We all stood by Jesse as he struggled with his life’s challenges over the past few years, particularly through his long recovery from a near fatal car accident some two years ago. Jesse had just begun his return to work at the company he helped to found with his brother Darcy many years ago, but on August 23, we lost our very precious son as he went peacefully into that long dark night, joining his sister Amanda Leigh and his grandparents, Arnold and Lois Tuer. The world became a little less bright on that day.

Please keep Jesse’s memory in your hearts by remembering and talking about the times you spent with him. Remember his great sense of humour, his fierce love for his entire family, and the joy he may have shared with you when he talked about his children. We are so very thankful to have Jesse live on through their lives.

Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S, Chapel of the Bells (2720 Centre Street North) on Sunday, August 29, 2010 at 2:00 p.m. Graveside Service will follow at Queen’s Park Cemetery. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. Jesse loved beautiful things, including flowers, but much more than that he loved to help. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the charity of the donor’s choice, or make someone in your life a little happier with something you do.

In living memory of Jesse Tuer, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 CENTRE STREET NORTH Telephone: (403) 276-2296.

    Dear David, Linda and family;

    Ann & I are so very sorry to hear of Jesse’s passing. As you have requested in your loving memoriam notice, we are remembering the many happy times we shared with Jesse and Susan when they were together and the great laughter we shared, often sparked by his great sense of humour and unique take on life. When he and our son Ian got laughing together, it was hilarious.

    His love of Kraft dinner has never been equalled.

    We were sorry to hear of his accident a few years ago and of his struggles since that time. But our memories are of happier times. Jesse will always have a special place in our hearts.

    Our thoughts and love go out to you.

    Brian & Ann Clark

    Dear David, Linda and Family,

    First of all, I hope that I have identified you correctly as the David Tuer whom I know from My 30+ years at PanCanadian/EnCana. If not, than please forgive me this intrusion.

    My wife Sigrid and I would like to express our sincere sympathies as we can empathise with you. A little less than 2 years ago we lost our son Mark (34 years old) in a most tragic way. (He had just completed 10 years at PCP/EnCana). He was just married for 5 weeks at the time. It is said that parents should not have to bury their children, but that choise, sadly, is not ours.

    We pray that the Good Lord will give you strength during this time of sorrow and help you as you grieve.

    Mike and Sigrid Lochli

  7. I worked with Jesse for a number of years, and remember him fondly. He will always have a special place in my heart.

    He was a marvellous mixture of big heart, hot temper, sweetness and fierce glare. His sense of humour had no equal. He made me laugh more times than I can count, and his love for his family and especially his children was a wonderful thing to see. His appreciation for silliness was unbounded.

    My condolences to his family and his many friends. My thoughts are with you all.

    Sincerely,
    Liz

  19. I am deeply saddened to hear of Jesse’s passing.

    I met him last summer in Nanaimo and he became a close friend. He had the biggest heart and was the best kind of friend you could have – loyal, supportive, and a wicked sense of humor.

    He spoke so lovingly of his children and family, and had tremendous hopes and plans for them and for himself. He was such a good guy and I am incredibly fortunate to have known him.

    I will keep him and his family in my thoughts, and will always remember him as a terrific friend.

He left a footprint in my heart that will always remain, although we only got to be around each other for a short time, I fell in love with his smile, his attitude on life, his family values and his drive to make the best of himself and his family. I’ll never forget playing wii fit with him and drinking protein shakes, and making me get up at 6 am every morning. I can still hear him laugh. And I can still hear his voice. My thoughts are with everyone.
