Jesse T. Christen

June 12, 2020

On June 12, 2020, Jesse Tyler Christen went to heaven. Walking this Earth with heavy hearts until we meet again are his beloved Momma, Sheri Krienke; his dearest sister, Sara Aldarondo; his loving step dads, Paul Aldarondo and Steve Krienke; adoring grandparents, Gene and Darlene Seefeldt; and a plethora of extended family and family-like friends who were all so special to him. With him, up above are his Grandma Lou; and the best dog and friend a guy could ask for, his pal Arby.

Jesse was larger than life. He had a love for fishing, snowboarding and adventures, he was always down for whatever, whenever! If there was something nobody else could do, Jesse would find a way to do it and do it well. If Jesse was your friend, it was for life; he was loyal and had your back, no matter what. With his heart of gold, his kindness, compassion, and love could outshine the darkest of times, even to a stranger. He had one of those smiles and laughs that just lit up the room where you couldn’t help but smile back; he would always find a way to put you in a good mood. Jesse’s hugs were one of a kind and you never wanted them to end; he had a genuinely loving soul. Jesse absolutely loved the outdoors, tattoos, drawing, music, dogs, being with his family and friends and just being an overall goofball. He loved to show his monkey tattoo in his armpit! His greatest prides were his Momma and his sister, Sara or “kid!” He loved to tell everyone of his little sis’ accomplishments and how proud he was of her. From being there on the day she was born and growing up being the big brother, their special bond will never be broken. His mom was truly his rock and he loved her with all his heart. His prankster self, sense of humor and love for fishing are from his grandpa Gene who taught him how to throw a ball and always do his best. Jesse’s love for animals, especially dogs, was undeniable and his ability to connect with them was unique. His true best friend, Arby, was his ride or die and we know they are so happy to be reunited. We are sure their reunion consisted of lots of face licks, kisses, and belly rubs! He loved that dog so much.

Jess left a huge imprint on so many throughout his life whether you knew him from the beginning or for just a short amount of time. His soul was pure and special. Until next time, rest easy son, brother, and friend. You are sadly missed but will live forever in our hearts and the beautiful memories we have. Peace out, you hippie dippie soul. Love always.

Condolences

  • Cousin Ian There are some in life who only talk the talk. Jesse always walked the walk, and he made sure I did the same. He had my back through thick and thin - he had everyone's back.

    Cousin Jess was 4 years older than me, and I always looked at him like an older brother. He taught me how to live in the present.

    How to skip rocks, bike with no fear, fish, play sports, draw, ask meaningful questions, fight, love with all you have, hug, sell, jump the pearly gates, and even talk to girls.

    Whatever impact he had on you - take the good, apply it to your own life, and amplify it by 1000x. The next time you see the sun shining on a day it wasn't supposed to, look up and give him a smile.

    Rest in paradise Jess

  • Auntie Tracy He will forever be my Cheezer Wheezer. No matter how old he was that was the start of our conversations. He blessed my life and I am so grateful for the smiles, the hugs, the “I love you Auntie Tracy” At the end of every conversation. This is forever imprinted in my mind. My heart aches and another chip of it is gone, but I know you are free of all the pain. To my sister and Sar Bear, my heart goes out to you. Love you both so much.
