Jesse Raines Obituary

Jesse Lee Raines, age 38, of Swannanoa, NC, passed away on Thursday, December 14, 2023 at Mission Hospital in Asheville, NC.

Jesse was born on June 1, 1985 in Buncombe County and was raised by his beloved mother, Norma Jean Fox Raines, who passed away in 2017. He worked in construction for most of his life.

He was a loving father and a hard worker. Jesse was a very caring person. He would give you the shirt off of his back if you needed it. Jesse also loved to make people smile and laugh with quick wit and sense of humor. He enjoyed working on cars and tinkering around fixing things in his spare time. He will be deeply missed by all those who loved and knew him.

Those left behind to cherish his memory are his beloved children, three daughters, Annaleese Raines (fiance’ Chris Morgan) of Candler, NC, Alliyah Raines of Asheville, NC, and Harmony Raines of Cameron, NC; two sons, Jessee Raines, Jr. and Allijah Raines, both of Black Mountain, NC; one grandson, Arion Raines; a granddaughter due to be born on Christmas, Amara Jesse Aurora Morgan; and 17 brothers and sisters.

A private Celebration of Life Service will be held at a later date.
