Jesse Christopher Martin, 11, of Covington, Ind., passed away Friday, October 20, 2017, at Riley's Children's Hospital in Indianapolis.
Jesse was born on April 13, 2006, in Danville, the son of Donald and Candice Martin.

Jesse was preceded in death by his great Grandpa Ed and his Uncle Chris.
Jesse never met a stranger. He touched the hearts of everyone who met him and he will be deeply missed by all.
Jesse loved sports. He was very competitive, but he had a big heart and loved being around people. He loved the farm and all the animals, and driving or riding in tractors were some of Jesse's enjoyments. He loved everyone and would stop to visit with people for as long as they would talk with him. Jesse was the life of the party and was always full of life. He had just won the MVP award for caring more for others than himself.
A visitation will take place 4-8 p.m. EDT Friday, Oct. 27, at Covington Middle School Gym. Services will be at 10 a.m. EDT Saturday, October 28, at the gym. Burial will follow.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in Jesse's name to his family. Please join Jesse's family in sharing pictures, video and memories on his Tribute Wall at www.sunsetfuneralhome.com
