The Homecoming family is sad to learn that our dear friend, Jessy Dixon, passed away at 10:37 a.m. on Monday, September 26. He was 73 years old.
Jessy Sixon was a musicia, a gentleman, a friend and a totally gracious human being. He conducted himself with grace, dignity and honor always. He will truly be remembered with respect, honor and a gratefulnesses for his gift of sharring with the world his love of God and his marvelous voice. When Jessy was on stage no one set still.
Rest in eternal peace and everlasting love Mr. Dixon, you will never be for gotten .
Jessy Dixon will be missed but his great music will always live on, I will really miss his on the Gaither viedoes. When he sings he makes everyone so happy even if you are not feeling very well.
The first time I met Jessy in person was at the Auditorium in Milwaukee WI. I was sitting in the second tier of seats and all of a sudden this man sat down next to me and as I turned I saw it was Jessy. He held his finger to his lips so I would not let the others know around me that it was Jessy. Then all of a sudden it was his turn to sing and did he ever. He was such a joy to listen to and his energy was unbelieveable. I wish I would have know that he was also my birthday buddy. Yes, we both were born on March 12th. I am younger than he was but my hair is much whiter than his. My condolences to his family and all of the Gaither family as well. He will be missed.
I can imagine him singing with perfect rejoycing in the Land where he sang about down here! What a blessing such people, he will be missed but his music will stay with us!
I will miss Jessy and his dancing and his voice.
Sad to hear this.His songs will always inspire us as we prepare for the soon coming of the LORD.
Jessy, you will be sorely missed but so happy you have now literally finished your walk on the Highway to Heaven! We will always remember you soul and music, how you gathered in the crowd to help you worship our Saviour. A fan from Texas.
Jessy Dixon was one of a kind. A guy that made you think he was singing just for you and we felt he was a special friend even though we didn't know him except for his singing. We thank the Lord for allowing us to enjoy and be blessed by the musical talent of this great Christian man. Our love and prayers go to his family. They shared him with thousands of us regular people. Heaven is again richer as Jessy was welcomed into the presence of Jesus.
I'm so GLAD I have the "Best of Jessy Dixon" DVD - I play it often - and while I'm saddened by his passing - I know that he is w/God and livening up heaven's choir. I had wondered why I had not seen Jessy in the more recent Homecoming programs - and had noticed he wasn't scheduled to be in any of the concerts - Jessy seemed ageless to me so perhaps the biggest surprise is that he was 73 !!
I know that Jesse will be surely missed in the Netherlands to, we sure will. We loved his performence and his joy in life. Rest in peace Jesse.
