Jesse Atteberry Obituary


CARROLLTON - Jesse Alexander Atteberry, 25, died suddenly on Wednesday, March 13, 2024 in Carrollton, Illinois.

He was born in Jerseyville, Illinois on January 25, 1999, one of three children born to Joey Lee and Jacqueline (Peoples) Atteberry.

From the beginning, he gave his Mom and Dad a run for their money with his outgoing personality and his fearless nature.  

Being diagnosed with liver cancer at 8 months of age, his stubborn and fiercely determined nature served him well as he battled the disease throughout his life, never letting it prevent him from having a good time.

He graduated in 2017 from Carrollton High School and was currently employed as a millwright with McAdams Millwrights in Greenfield.   He was a damn good welder, possessing a talent with a snowman that very few could accomplish.

He enjoyed skateboarding, squatter trucks, along with three other things, and of course, if you know!

He was fiercely devoted to his family, and his son, Spencer Lee, was the absolute joy of his life.

Surviving are his parents, Jackie and Matt Meyer of Carrollton; his son, Spencer Lee Atteberry; his companion and mother of their son, Delanie Boan of Greenfield; two sisters and their companions, Paige Atteberry and Devin Hileman of White Hall, and Emma Atteberry and Sylvester Delp of Carrollton; a niece, Lorelei; a nephew, Joseph; his "Bonus" Mom, Moma Lo; aunts, uncles, and his canine buddy, Busch, appropriately named after his favorite beverage.

He considered himself lucky and blessed, enjoying his large group of special buddies.

He was preceded in death by his father, Joey Atteberry on May 28, 2008, and his grandparents, Jesse and Patricia Peoples.

Visitation will be from 4 to 7 p.m., Tuesday at Crawford Funeral Home in Jerseyville, where funeral services will be conducted at 10 a.m. Wednesday. Rev. Isaac King will officiate.

He will be laid to rest beside his father at Carrollton City Cemetery.

Memorials may be given to the family  to assist in the care of his son, in care of the funeral home.
