It is with much sadness and much love that we say good bye to our son, and brother Jesse Robert Rebman, who passed away on August 20, 2018. Jesse, the beloved son of Barb and Harold Rebman, is survived by his brother David (Jill) Rebman, Noah and Olivia; sister Laura (Shaun) Blanchette, Jenna and Jordan; brother Jonathan (Elise) Rebman; brother Corey Rebman; grandmother Elizabeth Frey and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

Jesse was a loving and kind son and brother. He spent the last 17 years trying to beat leukemia, but God saw to call him home and although we are terribly sad, we know that he is rejoicing in Heaven, free at last.

Love you Jesse, we will miss you forever.

Melinda Pope

Barb, Harold and family, I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. It is just not in the order of things that our children die before we do ( I always remember those wise words from Frieda).

Sharon Pope

I am so happy to have known you Jesse, what an honour to pray for you – a soldier, brave and true. I will miss you on this earth, but know I will see you again.

My heart goes out to you Barb and Harold, David, Jill, Noah and Olivia, Laura, Shaun, Jenna and Jordan, Jonathan and Elise and Corey. Sending love and prayers.

Rachel Pope

Harold & Barb, and family – words are inadequate, but prayers are not, so all I can offer you is my love and my prayers at this time. I know that our amazing Heavenly Father will hold you and comfort you all – for this I pray. I am holding you up to the throne, especially today. I love you.

Scott Rebman

I so regret having to miss Jesse’s memorial as I am presently on a job site in Swift Current, Saskatchewan. However, you and your entire family are very much on my mind and, despite all your grief, I hope you can somehow find some comfort in knowing that Jesse is now free from discomfort and pain and is at rest. 

Scott, Erin & Jace Rebman

Darrel & Janet Breitkreutz

Our hearts are broken and grieve with you, Barb and Harold and rest of your family. Jesse fought the good fight and you were there to support and be with him all the way. We are praying for God to comfort and give you strength for each day ahead until the day you meet him again! What an awesome assurance we as believers in Jesus have!

Martina Kruger

I knew Jesse from the time he first started his cancer journey. It was through his faith that he was able to make this journey. He was such a kind, gentle young man. His smile lit up the room. He will be sorely missed. Barb, Harold and family, I’m sorry for your loss. You are in my prayers.

Shandell Switzer

I am so very sorry for your loss. I recognized Jesse’s photo in The Edmonton Journal. I was his grade six teacher at Earl Buxton. He was a kind and gentle boy with a shy, sweet smile. You, his family and friends, are in my heart and my prayers. I wish you peace, strength and comfort.

Lorian Taylor and Jeff Vallance

Jeff and I would like to send our deepest sympathies to Dave and Jill and the rest of the Rebman family. Our prayers are with you and we know Jesus was there to take Jesse to heaven. What a hope we have.

Adriana Schuurman

How sad the loss of your son. My heart weeps for you at this time of sorrow. We may not understand why, but God knows and feels your pain . May he wrap His loving arms around you and lift you up. Barb and Harold, my love and prayers are with you.

Deborah E Frey

Jesse, You are my true inspiration. You lived life to the fullest, you never let cancer take your smile away. When you came down to Windsor my best buddy seen something positive in you. He asked if you ever wanted a job. There would be one available within his policing agency. The glow the smile just made the sun blossom. How you would’ve loved a position like this and know you’d have been close to your oma, grandma Frey.

With that gracious smile, you explained your situation, that you would be in supreme glory. Yet had to refuse due to your health.

Jesse, I am sad I couldn’t have visited on your last days here. I so wish I could have spoken with you one last time. That was not in gods plan which is fine as I know we shall meet once again. On heavenly grounds where the magnitude of pain dissipates, a place tears stop and smiles begin.

Barb, Harold, David, Laura, Johnny, Cory, wives, husband and grandchildren. I love you all and pray Gods glorious peace, grace and mercy abound all, in this sad, yet positive time for Jesse.
