Jesse Ronald Rock, Jr., 62, passed away from cancer on Wednesday, September 21, 2022. Jesse was born April 4,1960 in Brigham City, Utah to Jesse Ronald Rock and Patricia Jones Munson. He graduated from Box Elder High School and attended Weber State University (WSU) and the University of Utah.

He brought the Nuc Med program to Logan and was a mentor to countless students and employees, helping them build their careers.

While in school, he earned the Outstanding Achievement in Research award and the "2013 Thesis of the Year" in the Department of Radiologic Sciences. Jesse was always passionately working on a project, his hobbies included: painting nature scenes with watercolor or oil on canvas; silversmithing and jewelry making; fossil hunting and rock hounding; woodworking and furniture building; remodeling his home and landscaping. He was a green thumb who always had a big beautiful vegetable garden, raspberry bushes, grape vines, fruit trees, and plants filling the windowsills of his home. He was a ski bum who spent winters on the slopes, and a beach bum who frequented Newport Beach, California. He had a lifelong passion for the desert, which he shared with his youngest daughter, Victoria. Jesse was an avid hunter, fisher, hiker, and often took his oldest daughter, Desiree, backpacking in the Uinta Mountains with various family and friends. His love and respect for mother nature was endless. Jesse could often be found strumming his guitar, singing, or whistling a was always playing in the house. He loved being a grandpa and sharing all of his talents and wisdom with his grandsons, and he was brokenhearted to learn that his time with them was being cut short.
