LUCAS, Jesse Peter

Born on April 7, 2000. Passed away on April 16, 2024.

Loved and adored son of Linda and Peter.
Cherished brother of Brady and Sam.

No words can express the pain and sorrow that we feel right now. Your smile that brightened our day is gone but stays in our memory forever. The zest you had for life impacted all those that met you.
As long as we have those memories you will never be gone from our hearts, but at the moment those memories just add to the unbearable grief we are feeling.
A lifetime worth of adventures, friendships and love packed into 24 short years.
Jesse you will be loved and remembered forever.
Mum, Dad, Brady and Sam

  22. In Loving Memory of Jesse Lucas – A true stallion.

    It is with profound sadness that we say goodbye to a cherished member of the Colac Cricket Club.

    Jesse leaves a void that will be deeply felt by all who knew him.

    Jesse was more than just a club member; he was a real heart and soul stallion.
    Always willing to lend a hand, no matter how big or small.
    His dedication and enthusiasm were infectious, making him a beloved figure around the club.

    His absence will be deeply felt on gameday, Thursday night trainings, and all other club events where his presence brought so much joy and laughter.
    We will miss his vibrant personality, his boundless energy, and his true value to our club.

    As we mourn the loss of a true friend and a piece of the fabric at the Colac Cricket Club, we also celebrate the rich, joyful life he led and the countless lives he touched.
    Jesse’s legacy will live on at of our club, with many stories that will continue to be told of his time not only at our club but throughout.

    We extend our heartfelt condolences to Peter, Linda, Brady and Sam, and all of Jesse’s friends during this time of profound sorrow.

    Rest in peace, little Shotsy. You will forever be missed but never forgotten.

    Colac Cricket Club April 22 2024 7:13 pm
  23. Jesse,
    It’s hard to find the right words. We will miss everything about you, your infectious laugh, your love of life, your mischievous ways and your friendship. We have so many memories with you and we will treasure them all forever. Our lives won’t be the same without you here.

    Gone too soon but never forgotten
    It’s not good bye just see you later Shotsy.

  33. Jesse, can’t believe that this is true, that i won’t see you at the Cricket club when i come home again. One of the funniest blokes i have met always up for a practical joke and a laugh and would always lend a hand whenever one was needed.

    Deepest sympathy to Peter and all the family.

    RIP Shooter

    Domenic Miraglia April 23 2024 7:45 pm
  34. Shooter,
    No words can say how much we’re all hurting at the moment.
    You were a quick-witted mate that was always there for all of us.
    I will cherish all the great memories and moments from the early and later days at imps, the weekends, the countless moments from work and just anytime you’d pop up out of nowhere looking to have a drink.

    Thoughts are with you Sammy , Linda , Pete and Brady and all the Family

    Until next time Shotsy

  46. Dear Peter, Linda, Brady & Sam Lucas,

    I first met Jesse “Shooter” Lucas back in 2013, when, even as a young teen, his sharp wit, fun-loving ways & zest for life immediately became evident, as he & his group of young friends were always prominent at Colac Imperials Football Netball Club matches.

    Over the years, I watched him grow into a wonderful young man, who never lost that fun-loving way & zest for life.

    He was certainly a great character &, over the past few days, I’ve been having a chuckle to myself at some of the things he said & did.

    It’s unthinkable right now to imagine going out to the Colac Imperials F.N.C. & him not being there.

    Jesse joined us a few times on “CDFNL Live” & he always raised our spirits with his jokes & wit. Whenever I spent time with him, he’d always have me laughing & smiling.

    I’m stunned & shattered that I won’t see Jesse again & I cannot imagine what his family is going through right now. All I’d say is that he packed a lot into 24 years & he has left an indelible impression on so many.

    I send my deepest condolences to Peter, Linda, Brady & Sam Lucas, along with Jesse’s extended network of family & friends & everyone associated with the Colac Imperials Football Netball Club & Colac Cricket Club.

    Jesse was a little ripper. He bled navy blue & white for the Imperials & Geelong F.C. in the AFL & I’m sure every time those clubs take to the field, he’ll be looking down keenly, hoping they can salute.

    I’ll miss you, “Shooter”. Rest In Peace, buddy.

    Until we meet again,
    AJ Brady from “CDNFL Live”.

  50. A beautiful and fitting recount of Jesse and his forever impact. Its often said that “fun” is missing from education. Jesse made sure he did his his bit to counter that idea. A pleasure to have spent some time with him at school. Thoughts and condolences to you Peter, Linda, Sam and Brodie. Kind Regards, Brian & Lyn Crook

  51. Dear Linnie, Peter, Brady Sam and the Williams crew. On behalf of myself and the Kerr clan l wanted to extend our love and sympathy. Peter ,Linnie you certainly gave everyone a special gift. It was obvious that your son had a special purpose ,in his way too short life. From what we all saw and heard he certainly did an amazing job of living it to the fullest. He obviously shared his light and gifts to all he encountered. Now that is something that we can all learn from. Always be greatful for the time we have together. He will always be alive in your hearts, your memories and the stories that will be told time and time again. Linnie my heart goes out to you. I know and could see how much you loved your boys. Your an amazing Mum and Peter well you two are the ones that gave everyone the pleasure of being in Jesse’s life . He is a tribute to you both. Little steps . Sending all our love The Kerr Family XX
