He was a very bright child and brought joy to his parents with his happy but inquisitive demeanor. Kent graduated with honours from Medicine Hat High School in 1990, and knew his path would be Law in which he received his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Calgary. Kent then went on to the University of Victoria where he obtained his law degree and was quickly picked by a law firm in Calgary which grew his career becoming a highly successful lawyer. Kent took great pride in his wins for his clients and never lost a case that went to trial. He was smart and astute with a high degree of diligence in all of his work. Kent always wanted to be a Dad.

One Condolence for “Kent Jesse”

    I am so shocked and deeply saddened to hear this…I had been trying to contact him and he seemed so much happier lately. If a family member or friend would please contact me…I would so appreciate same. Kent was one of my longest and closest friends. We practiced law at Miller Thomson for many years and stayed in touch always…I am in total shock as I just talked to him a couple of weeks ago and saw him when I was in Calgary in September…I am so sorry I missed his Celebration of Life. I would have flown from Ontario to come. Kent was one of the smartest people I have ever met and had the biggest heart. I will miss him terribly.
