Jesse Cloyd, Sr. 48, of Lexington KY, loving father and son passed away Monday September 11, 2023 at Baptist Health Lexington. Jesse, the oldest of five children, was born on January 15, 1975 in Tucson, Arizona.

Jesse was preceded in death by his longtime love and the mother of his children, Miranda Land; great grandfather Ernest Cloyd; great grandparents Juan and Angelina Corella; grandmother Mary Martinez; grandfather Louis Gonzales; uncle Roy Martinez.

Jesse is survived by his son Jesse Cloyd, Jr and daughter Arizona Cloyd; his mother and stepfather Sally and Stephen Collins; father Dean Cloyd; brothers Anthony Cloyd, Tyler Collins; sisters Angelina (Jason) Seivers, Susie (Jathan) Toler; grandparents Don and Dorothy Cloyd.

Jesse attended Bryan Station High School where he displayed his athletic abilities running track and on the football field as a Defender. His enthusiasm for sports was ignited at a young age when he fell in love with ‘The Sweet Science’ otherwise known as Boxing. He spent his youth sparring neighborhood friends and encouraging them to take an interest in one of his lifelong passions. He was a fierce competitor, as you would know if you ever played volleyball or dominoes with him. 

After graduating in ’93, Jesse became more in tune with his artistic side. When he wasn’t writing and recording original music, he was sketching beautiful portraits of family and friends.

Jesse was always the life of any gathering he attended, whether it was “holding court” at a cookout or making others smile with his unique additions to the Happy Birthday song (Happy Birthday to You), (Youuuu). No matter what was going on he always had a bright smile and a kind heart and will be forever missed.

Pallbearers will be Anthony Cloyd, Tyler Collins, Jathan Toler, Deigo Cloyd, Nicholas Franklin and Cameron Franklin.

Funeral services will be 1:00 PM, Saturday, September 16, 2023 at Spurlin Funeral Home Chapel.

Visitation will be 11:00 AM until service time.

Burial will follow at Lancaster Cemetery.
