Jesse Frank Rood, 46, passed away on Sunday, June 10, 2018, at his home in Arlington, Texas. He was born in San Bernadino, California, on June 8, 1971. Jesse was the kind of guy everybody loved. Easygoing, would do the world for anyone when asked. I was the D.O. so when I planned any event he was there with a smile on his face. Family was his hobby. Jesse was known by his amazing hugs. He was so affectionate and a day didn't go by that he didn't show it. He was very invested and passionate about anything he was tasked to do. We have always admired him. He will be missed by many people who knew and loved him. Jesse worked as a Maintenance Planner for American Airlines. He was married to Laurie Jean Nehk. Jesse is survived by his loving wife of 14 years, Laurie (Nehk) Rood; father, Don Rood and wife, Karen; mother, Jennifer Williams and husband, David; sons, Jonny Rood and Nathan Rood; daughters, Tamsie Muth and husband Casey and Kaari Rood; brothers, Joe Rood and wife Kelly and Ken Williams and wife Melissa; sister, Cheri Odegaard and husband, Tracey, and two grandchildren, Aria and Mikey.

  2. I worked with Jessie at AAC. He was always cheerful, helpful and knowledgeable. His rye sense of humor was often a welcome relief in the frequently high pressure work place. I always enjoyed visiting and working with Jessie. He will be missed.
    Prayers for his family.

  3. Jesse, I’ll never forget the first day we met at Pt. Loma Seafoods and you were my boss. We were friends from the start and always laughed and worked together as a team. You were ‘The Bear’ and as everyone knows, you had the biggest smile and the joy of life with your hugs. We all will miss and love your spirit…Thank you for being my ‘Goombah’ Rest in peace, brother.

  4. Jesse,
    After returning from a much needed vacation, my heart is heavy to hear we lost a Team Member. Jesse was a part of ‘OUR’ American Airlines Family and I really am at a loss of words. Although I met Jesse mid January of this year, it really felt like I’d known him much longer. I became very fond of his kind heart and sweet personality and he was always willing to give me as much information needed to assist with the helping the maintenance application functionality improve. I am very Grateful before I went on vacation I was able to talk with him, make him smile and laugh while he worked on a busy unit. That alone brings me confort.
    May your Soul Rest in Peace Dear Jesse, You are and will be missed. I pray for strength and comfort to your entire family, friends and coworkers.
