Jesse Workman


Jesse Dean Workman, 71, passed away March 29, 2018.

He was born May 11, 1946, to Mary Lindsay Workman and Raymond Workman. Jess was welcomed home by his older sister Sharon. His parents were later divorced. Through a series of marriages, Jess gained two brothers, Alan and Jack, and three sisters, LeeAnn, Julie, and Clarlyn. He grew up in Thermopolis and Lovell, Wyo., and Livingston and Bozeman, Mont.

In 1969 Jess married Cheryl Marion. With this marriage he gained two daughters, Babette and Terry. He and Cheryl had two sons, Raymond and Warren. Cheryl and Jess later divorced.

He has shared the last 17 years of his life with Diane Yourick, whom he loved very much. They enjoyed many common interests including the love of their four legged fury kids.

Jess worked at many different jobs including being a bricklayer, cement finisher, carpenter and farm hand. His real passion was building and flying remote controlled planes. He spent many hours perfecting this passion. Jess could fill a room with laughter, jokes and a sense of humor. He also has a soft side that you might miss if you didn't spend time with him.

He is survived by Diane of Byron, Wyo.; children, Raymond (Lorrie), Warren and Babette Britton, all of Boise, Idaho and Terry Madina of Lubbock, Texas; brothers, Jack (Mary) Sanders of Belgrade, Mont., and Alan (Pat) Thompson of Hamilton, Mont.; sisters, Julie (Gary) Jolley of Lovell, and Clarlyn (Mike) Snyder of Worland, Wyo.; aunts, Phyllis Denton of Sandy, Utah, Elanore Wagner of Powell, Wyo., and Barbara Workman of Lovell; uncle, Loren (Donna) Workman of Casper, Wyo.; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Jess is preceded in death by his parents; sisters, Sharon and LeeAnn; and several aunts and uncles.
