Mr. Jesse Owen Fearrington, 94, formerly of Pittsboro, NC, died at his residence in Charlotte, NC early Friday morning, January 10, 2014. Son of the late John Bunyan Fearrington and Annie Jessica Owens, Jesse was born May 20, 1919 and would spend a big part of his life farming and making a home with his wife, the late Sarah Willa Drew. In 1973, he exchanged the point of the plow for the rudder of a ship and started selling Viking boats and enjoying time on the water deep sea fishing. Later in life he developed various properties with his friend Earl Thomas.
Jesse was a 32nd degree Mason and was active in CHICO – the Chapel Hill Investment Club. He served on the North Carolina and Chatham County Soil and Water Conservation Commissions, The Pittsboro Central Carolina Bank and Trust Board and was President of the Dairy Council for the Burlington-Durham-Raleigh area. He served on the Chatham County Planning Board and was its chairperson for six years. Jesse was a man of integrity and one with a sweet disposition. This quiet man spoke few words, but was always there to help out those burdened or in need. In addition to his wife and parents, Jesse was preceded in death by his brother Edwin.
Surviving Jesse are his daughter, Willa Anne Fearrington, of North Palm Beach, FL; his son, Jesse Barbara Fearrington, Jr., of Charlotte, NC; his granddaughter, Sarah Tom Ellis of Athens, GA; his grandson, John Fearrington, of Raleigh, NC; and his great-grandchildren, Adelaide, Crews and William.
A service to honor the life Mr. Jesse Fearrington will be held 1 pm, Saturday, January 18, 2014 at Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church, 269 Manns Chapel Rd., Pittsboro, NC.
At the request of the family, in lieu of flowers, please make memorial contributions to Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church or the charity of your choosing.

Our neighborhood was special because Mr Jesse Fearrington just made it feel that way. His gentle smile and friendliness will be and has been missed since he moved away. Thoughts are with you all.

We will miss Uncle Jesse and his humble spirit. Thinking of all of you as you now begin your life on earth without those that helped to make you who you have become. I remember all my times growing up running through the “big white house” only to one day use it as the site of our wedding. Those memories, having “Uncle” Jesse there and love for your family made that setting most special. Our hearts and prayers go out to you.
Love – MaryLisabeth

Uncle Jesse I will never forget you and how fun it was to visit you on the farm, and your home. I loved growing up in the town that so many thought so highly of you and Aunt Willa. I enjoyed seeing you in church on Sunday. I just loved you laughing with me. To all my cousins that lost a father and grandfather I wish your sorrow to be brief and yor memories everlasting. With love from our family Michelle Strowd White, Greg, Jax and Grayson
