Drummond, Jesse James (Age 86)
July 10, 1929 – Nov. 20, 2015
Mission Viejo, CA
Jesse Drummond died peacefully in his home on the morning of Nov. 20, 2015.
Born and raised in New York City, he later moved to Los Angeles to further his life long career in Advertising. He was active in the church (Mother of Good Counsel) and charitable organizations.
He continued dabbling in the Ad business after retiring and moving to Orange County.
His number one passion in life was his family. Other passions included water color painting, golfing, setting up his train set at Christmas time, spending time at the beach and jumping into one creative project after the next.
He will be remembered by all for his sense of humor, giving spirit and thoughtfulness. He was always thinking of ways to make people happy.
He is preceded in death by his twin brother Freddie and older brother Kenneth. He is survived by his loving wife of 64 years, Patricia, Children; Joanne, Virginia (Tommy), Susan, (Ken) James, and John (Nancy) and 13 grandchildren.
His loss to our lives will be immeasurable. It will certainly be easy to have a smile come to our faces and laugh when remembering him and his antics.
