Gone but not forgotten

”To everything, there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die, a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted.”


Funeral service for Jesse Gossett of Marksville will begin at 1:00pm on Saturday, September 21st, 2019 at the Starlight Baptist Church of Marksville. Burial will be held at the Starlight Baptist Cemetery.  

Jesse Gossett, age 75, passed away on Sunday, September 15th, 2019 at the Riviere de Soleil Community Care Center.


Jesse Gossett Sr. was born on July 2, 1944 to the late Magnolia and Perk Gossett.

He was a native of Dumas, Arkansas and a resident of Marksville, Louisiana.  


Jesse confessed a hope in Christ and accepted Christ as his personal Savior early in his life while living in Arkansas.  He later joined Starlight Baptist Church and served on the Usher Board and sang in the Male Choir until his health began to fail.


Jesse was a farmer at heart. He raised chickens, hogs, and vegetables. He loved to fish and hunt. He led a beautiful life of caring and sharing. He shared his life stories with his family and friends encouraging them not to follow in his footsteps but to do better. He was an avid checker and domino player.


Some of his favorite phrases were, “The Lord has been good to me” and ”Thank you, Lord.” He had no problem saying, thank you and I love you.


He leaves to rejoice in his memory his wife, Bertha Gossett, son, Jesse Gossett Jr, daughter, Desner, six grandchildren, a host of nieces and nephews and friends. His parents, brothers and sisters all preceded him in death.


Visitation will begin at 12:00pm until 1:00pm on Saturday, September 21st, 2019 at the Starlight Baptist Church of Marksville.
