Jesse C. “Jess” Gingras, 41, residing in Linden, Virginia, departed this life on June 8, 2019 in the presence of family and friends, after battling cancer since 2015. He is truly a Super Hero! He is missed far more than words could ever express. Jess was born January 20, 1978 in Fairfax, Virginia, the son of Kenneth G. and Nynna R. Gingras. He was predeceased by his father, Kenneth Gingras and is survived by his mother, Nynna Gingras, brother, Jason Gingras, sister-in-law, Sherry Maramag-Gingras, nephew, Elijah Gingras, Aunt Cathy Gingras, Uncle George Gingras, Aunt Marilyn Gingras, Uncle Scott Thomas, cousins Mallory McLaughlin, Julie Thomas, Nathan Gingras and Eric Thomas and his adopted sister, Gabby Koster. Jess' great loves were his family and friends. He was an extraordinarily creative and humorous individual who loved telling jokes and was good at it. He was in the midst of writing his own comic book when he was taken from us. Jess participated in two clinical trials at the National Institute of Health. He knew from the beginning that the trials probably wouldn't be of any help to him. He did the trials in the hope that they would help others! He was the kindest, most caring person I've ever had the privilege to know and love and he was my son. Those who knew him loved him. A service celebrating his life is being planned. Please e-mail email@example.com if you would like to attend. In lieu of flowers, please make donations in his name to St. Jude's, Shriner's Hospital and/or the American Cancer Society.
