LIVINGSTON -- On Dec. 21, 2012 at 10 a.m., Jessy Wayne Dunn of Splendora died, with his loving wife of 43 years, Debbie Jane, at his side. Jessy was born July 21, 1949 in Anahuac, to J.W. and Rosa Gustine Dunn. Jessy was a proud U.S. Army veteran, serving during the Vietnam era. He married Debbie Jane Hill of Goodrich on Dec. 23, 1969, and loved her beyond measure until the moment he took his last breath. Jessy was a very talented man and was successful in many fields of employment. Jessy started several businesses from, construction to non-profit organizations to help the less fortunate people in the Montgomery/Liberty County areas. Jessy is remembered by many to be a giving and caring man. He worked as a business owner in construction and traveled all over the world from different states to different countries. In 2008, Jessy traveled to Iraq as a project manager and was responsible for starting a place of worship for Third Country Nationals.
