Jesse Lee Warren, 34, of Ligonier died Wednesday June 30, 2021. Grandson of Mary Rose Warren, the late Ernest Warren, the late Nick J. Serrapere and the late Rose Serrapere. Beloved son of Ernest Warren and Antoinette Serrapere Warren. Loving fiancé of Erika Falbo. Loving father of Ryder and Roman. Dear brother of Jamie (Chris) Grant.

For many years Jesse fought a long battle with addiction. A battle in which the enemy is merciless and unrelenting. Jesse’s addiction ultimately claimed his young life. A kind-hearted spirit with all the potential in the world overshadowed by the grasp heroin held over his life. Our family brings this to light out of choice and for all to realize no one is immune to the opioid and heroin epidemic. Jesse did not want to leave this world behind. We all wished he had recognized his many talents and saw himself in the way that his friends and family always did. Our family fought the only ways we knew how and as hard as we could. We rest easy knowing his struggle is now over and true peace may begin.
