We lost our first born child, our son Jess A. Resser, age 54, of Plymouth, at 3:30 P.M., December 5, 2014, at Froedtert Hospital.

He was born to Judith Blake and Richard Resser in Freeport, IL on April 25, 1960 at 2:00 P.M.

Jess graduated from Plymouth High School in 1979. He worked several jobs, leaving Kohler to join the U.S. Marine Corps on Dec. 23, 1983, which he chose as his career, retiring in 2004, reaching the rank of Gunnery Sergeant.

During his years of service, he received many accommodations, including the Navy-Marine Distinguished Military Medal for going above and beyond the call of duty. We are all so very proud of his military service to our country. He then joined his father and brother’s profession as a boilermaker to the present time.

Jess was an avid sportsman, spending much of his time with his best buddy Jack.

He is survived by his parents: Judy (Don) Blake and Dick (Jera) Resser; Two daughters: April (Wes) Baumann and Kelly Resser; Two brothers: Richard Resser and Shayne (Lanette) Resser; Two sisters: Becky Resser and little sis Tara (Gary) Resser; Two grandchildren: Lincoln Lensmire and Hudson Baumann; niece and nephew: Jack (best buddy) and Shannon Resser; Aunt Shelb (Don) Albrecht; Cousins: Brian (Kelly) Albrecht, Lori (Brad) Crook, Brittany and Nichole Albrecht, Kaitlyn Crook, as well as many friends far and wide.

Celebration and sharing of stories will be held on Wednesday (Dec. 10) from 4:00 – 8:00 P.M. at the Suchon Funeral Home in Plymouth. Ladewig-Zinkgraf American Legion Post #243 will conduct Military Rites immediately following the services at 8:00 P.M. Cremation will take place following the celebration.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund is being established in Jess’s name for the Wounded Warrior Project.
