Please donate to The Roanoke Chowan Wildlife Club in memory of Jesse Shores

Jesse Arnold Shores, age 88, passed away peacefully on October 16, 2023. He was born on August 15, 1935, in Hertford County, to the late Garland Elwood Shores and Katie Wallace Lassiter Shores.

Jesse led a fulfilling life as a skilled carpenter, dedicating his talents to constructing homes and also worked with Majette Welding and Perdue Farms Inc. Despite having only an eighth-grade education, Jesse possessed an innate ability to envision and create anything he set his mind to. Some even said he had the skills to teach high school construction classes.

Growing up on the Mitchell Farm, Jesse developed a passion for hunting that lasted throughout his life. He enjoyed pursuing raccoons, rabbits, deer, and even bears. He eagerly passed down his knowledge and love for hunting and fishing to his nephews, instilling in them a lifelong appreciation for the great outdoors. Fishing was another pastime that brought him joy, from his early years spent fishing in local ponds to the recent moments he shared with his grandchildren, Wiley James and Parker, who will forever cherish the memories of their fishing trips together.

In addition to his hobbies, Jesse had a collection of knives, with a trusty Swiss Army Knife always tucked away in his pocket. He also had a heart full of compassion and a willingness to lend a helping hand to those who were down on their luck. Jesse's generosity knew no bounds.

Jesse was a man of faith and attended Millennium and later Oak Grove Baptist Church with his son, Arnold. More recently, he found solace in attending Conway Baptist Church with his significant other.

Thanks for your donation!
