Brookfield / Colorado Springs, CO - Jesse M. Fimian, 25, a cadet with the United States Air Force Academy, passed away suddenly on Sunday, April 30, 2023, in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
Jesse was born in Logan, Utah, and lived most of his life in Brookfield, Massachusetts. He graduated from Tantasqua Regional High School in 2016. During high school, he enlisted in the Air National Guard at Barnes Airport National Guard in Westfield, Massachusetts, where he began his Air Force career. He was about to enter his senior year at Colorado’s United States Air Force Academy where he was involved in the political science and Space Force career paths. He has traveled to many countries in his time, and made connections with people everywhere he went. His infectious smile and zest for life were contagious. He will be sorely missed by all that he touched. We were glad to have him in our lives for the time given us, though too short.
Jesse was predeceased by his father, Michael Fimian in 2021. He leaves his mother Donna Fimian of Brookfield, his sisters Kara Fimian, a teacher, and Lauren Fimian, a student at Tulsa Tech in Tulsa, Oklahoma. He also leaves his many aunts, uncles, friends and comrades.
He was looked up to by many in his community with his drive and inspiring example. Even though he is gone, he will always be with us as our friend, brother, and son.
Calling hours for Jesse will be held on Sunday, May 7, 2023, from 2 to 5pm, in the Varnum Funeral Home, Inc., 43 East Main St., in West Brookfield. Other funeral services will be held privately.
In lieu of flowers, a scholarship memorial fund will be set up at Tantasqua Regional High School in the near future for a scholarship in Jesse’s name, or a memorial donation be sent to Second Chance Animal Shelter, P.O. Box 136, East Brookfield, MA 01515.
