On Friday April 24th, after a long battle with heart failure Maxwell Jessop passed at the age of 15. Max was born in Batavia on August 20th, 2004 and was a student at the New York State School for the Blind. Those who knew Max will remember him for his mischievous nature, his passion for food, and his love for swimming, skiing and bouncing. Without ever saying a word, he taught everyone he met what it meant to truly love. Max never complained about the burdens he carried throughout his life. He lived his life without rules or judgment, and if he could help it - without clothes. His magnetic nature changed the lives of anyone who was fortunate enough to know him.
Max will reunite in heaven with his Granka (Janet Jessop), Grandma J., his Donnie, and finally meet his grandpa Mike.
Max will be dearly missed here on Earth by his parents Sean and Shannon (Murphy) Jessop, his sister Ryan Jessop, his best friends Aunt Shawna and Roberta Drescher, his Nani (Susan Murphy), grandfather (John Jessop), his friends at the Blind School, as well as numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Max’s name to the New York State School for the Blind, Attention Marie Cone, 2A Richmond Avenue, Batavia, New York 14020.
