Shawn "Jesse" Bailey passed away on January 28, 2023. He was born on October 4, 1966 to Roger and Anne Bailey Sturdivant. Jesse worked for Lost Mountain Electric for over 30 years. He also worked in park services for Kennesaw Mountain and Pickett's Mill. Jessie did civil war reenactments for both parks and was a historian. He was also an excellent horseman and made all sorts of handmade leather goods. Jesse loved music and was a great musician. He played guitar, bass, and mandolin and performed with a group. He had many friends who he loved, and he was a fun person to be with. He didn't meet a stranger, and he'd talk to anyone. Jesse was full of life, and he will be very missed.
