Obituary of Jesse T. Dupont
Jesse T. Dupont, 22, of Housatonic fell to his death on March 28, 2017. Born January 18, 1995 in Great Barrington, he is survived by his parents, Adam & Nicole (Morris) Dupont, his big brother Adam, his twin brother Alex, nephew & Godson Grayson, his paternal grandparents, Albert & Marie Dupont of Stockbridge, his maternal grandparents, Donald & Jackie Rideout of Maine and his many beloved aunts, uncles; Albert Dupont Jr. and wife Laura, Michael Dupont and wife Ellyn, Jason Dupont and wife Cortney, Isreal Morris and wife Amy and cousins; Madison and Victoria Morris, Kayla, Megan, Mya, Shaun and Kevin Dupont. Jesse was predeceased by great aunt and uncle, Cheryl and Lester Santoes.
Jesse lived his life like he played varsity football for Monument Mountain High School, #28….with great passion and dedication to the team. Jesse’s “team” was massive; his family, friends, the special “Housy Boys”, coaches, teachers and his dog, Bella and cat, Friday. Jesse lived by the creed of devotion, loyalty and the expression of unconditional love which his “team” always returned to him in their love and support. Jesse shared his talents and leadership by mentoring special needs students at Monument….he was often seen dancing in the halls with them. Jesse treasured his alone time with his brothers, Adam and Alex, on their frequent fishing and hiking outings. Jesse’s parents were his roots and his family and friends were his branches….he continued to show his devotion to them all into his adulthood. The Dupont family invites Jesse’s “Team” to celebrate his life Sunday, April 2, 2017 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm at the Birches-Roy Funeral Home at 33 South Street, Great Barrington, MA
