Jessy Martens Obituary

With great sorrow, we announce the sudden passing of Jessy Nicolaus Martens, 65, on October 23, 2023.

Jessy was born the youngest of six children to Peter and Marianne Martens on December 27, 1957 in Toronto. 

He had a wild spirit and spent many years living an adventurous life as a nomadic traveller. Although he eventually settled down to have children in Regina, Saskatchewan, where he also honed his outstanding culinary skills. He became a very accomplished chef and won numerous awards. 

Jessy had many talents. He was creative, a great storyteller, had a wonderful green thumb and was loved by every dog that crossed his path. Being Grandpa came naturally to him and his grandkids adored him. 

He was loving, kind, wise and incredibly generous. He was also genuine, bold, honest, and you never had to wonder where you stood with Jessy. 

He is survived by his devoted son Benjamin Martens, daughter Samantha (Scott) Priestley, grandchildren, Imogen and Silas, and his brothers, Heino and John. 

He is predeceased by his parents, sisters Heidi and Marlene, and his dear brother Frank.

With a laugh that filled a room and a smile that radiated through his whole body, his charming light will shine in our hearts forever. 

As per his wishes, cremation has taken place. Friends and family are encouraged to meet at Jessy' s home on November 4 at 3 pm to share memories and have a bite to eat.

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
