To plant a memorial tree in honor of Master Jesse Thompson, please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
Jesse accomplished many great things in the short time he was placed on this earth. From the day he was born, his nickname was “Bruce” aka Batman. The medical team knew that if this baby makes it, he would be the most expensive human to keep alive! He became an Ambassador for London’s Children’s Hospital and has left a mark with everyone who met him. Jesse and his family went on a fun road trip to Toronto where he enjoyed visiting family, the zoo and going to the Ripley’s Aquarium.
Despite all the medical things Jesse had to go through in his life, he was a very happy boy and still smiled daily. Jesse’s greatest joys in life started right from when he was an infant, Jesse enjoyed swimming, music, playing with all his friends and going to daycare at Little Lions Kingsway and attending school at Algonquin. Jesse also enjoyed his short time spent at camp over the summer and going for boat rides.
Jesse will be greatly missed by his parents, Rory and Shubha Thompson; brother, Owen; grandparents, Meera Pandit and Cheryl and Bob Thompson; auntie Katey; great grandma Marie, his extended family, friends and cousins, teachers, nurses/doctors, and bus driver.
