BENUDIZ, Jesse Ryan - Jesse Ryan Benudiz passed away peacefully on Wednesday February 17, 2021. Jesse accomplished so much in his short 22 years and he hadn’t even touched the surface.

Jesse was the perfect son we had always wished for. He was a role model for many who had the privilege of knowing him, and the perfect son for us – respectful, courteous, generous, loyal, thoughtful, fun, the life of the party…

Jesse's smile was infectious, his energy contagious, always the life of the party, living life to the fullest.

Everyone who has known him was captivated by his outgoing personality and electric energy.

When we all went to Israel, Jesse felt a connection that stuck with him to this day. After his life-changing adventures, Jesse was ready to do what he was meant to do; helping people, which is what he did best.

Nothing could stop Jesse, not even a cancer. He stayed positive, “Blessed and Breezy." In November, Jesse thankfully, was in remission. Jesse had big plans. He launched “The blessed and breezy” podcast, explaining the obstacles he encountered, providing young adults the ability to discuss challenges with mental health and he was recently accepted to complete his MBA at the University of Fredericton.

Jesse leaves behind his loving family KC Coleman-Benudiz (mother), Max Benudiz (Father) his brothers Jamie and Justin, his abuela Mercedes Benatar.

Arrangements entrusted with Steeles Memorial Chapel. The funeral service will be live-streamed. Please go to on Friday, February 19th at 10:30 a.m. Memorial donations can be made to the Princess Margret Hospital (JesseStrong)
