February 4, 1967 — August 28, 2021

Memorial services for Jesse McDaniel, Jr. will be held on September 3, 2021 at Martin Luther Lutheran Church in Carmine, Texas at 1:00 PM .  A private burial will be held at a later date at Carmine City Cemetery.

Jesse McDaniel, Jr. of Carmine, passed away at home on August 28, 2021. He was born on February 4, 1967 to Jesse Lee McDaniel and Frances Ann Burton in Jacinto City, Texas.  Jesse was baptized as a teenager at the First Baptist Church of Jacinto City.  Jesse joined the United States Navy serving on aircraft carriers Kitty Hawk and Nimitz.  Jesse met the love of his life, Wendy Ullrich, while they worked at Continental Airlines McDaniel, then married on August 20, 1991.

Jesse was a founder and member of Fayette County Bee Keepers and a member of the Fayette County Fair Association, assisting with the poultry exhibit for several years.  He got his passion for bees and gardening from his grandfather.  Jesse especially loved taking his two rescue dogs, Gabby and Peanut for a ride in his truck.  (Jesse swears he doesn't have any dogs!)  Jesse was a loving husband, father and grandfather and loved spending time with his five granddaughters.

Jesse is survived by his wife, Wendy McDaniel; parents, Jesse Lee McDaniel Sr. and wife Debbie of Crockett, his mother Frances Ann Ezell and step-father Travis of Hunstville, two daughters, Cassie McDaniel and Erryn Havard and husband Sean, both of Lufkin; brother Shannon McDaniel; and five granddaughters, Lily, Ella, Olivia, Audry, and Emory.
