Jesse was born in Augusta on June 4, 1989. He grew up in Lincolnton and graduated from LCHS in 2008. After graduation, he attended Nashville Auto Diesel School where he received certification in auto paint and body refinishing. In the Spring of 2012 he was injured in an auto accident which resulted in a traumatic brain injury and was given a 1% chance of survival. However, within a year, he was functioning and later recovered. Following the accident, he fought addiction and through his addiction and his brain injury, he positively impacted many people that he met in addiction support groups and recovery centers that were going through similar experiences. Jesse enjoyed horseback riding, kayaking and loved to tinker with all kinds of projects. He could fix anything.For the past year, he had really put his life back together and had been a blessing to his family’s business.  He loved his God, family, his fiancée, friends, animals, life and had a great sense of adventure. He was engaged to Amy Shaufelberger and loved spending time with and showing her his  love of adventure. He proposed at the Biltmore House this past December on the rooftop! For all that knew him, his love, his smile, and his kind spirit will be greatly missed.

He is survived by his parents, Wayne and Tamara Wilcox Williford; fiancée, Amy Shaufelberger; brothers, Stephen Williford, and Danny Williford and wife Leigh; nieces and nephew, Tinley Williford, Daniel Williford, and Madelyn Williford.
