Obituary for James Adam Reese

October 28, 1971 - June 29, 2017
Cleveland, Ohio | Age 45


James Adam (Jim) Reese, 45, of Westlake, Ohio passed away Thursday, June 29, 2017 after a short but extremely courageous battle with cancer. Jim was born October 28, 1971 in Cleveland, Ohio. He attended Lakewood schools with the class of 1990. Jim was a self-taught chef by trade for almost 30 years. He cooked in multiple venues over the years, but his fondest memories were of his time spent in California. He catered parties for some Hollywood actors and watched the whales in the bay while cooking at the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The death of his nephew, Brandon Leigh Reese, brought him back home and he knew then he wanted to be with family. Most recently, Jim was proud to be a member of the culinary team of the Cleveland Yachting Club (CYC), Rocky River, Ohio. Jim is survived by his parents, Susan E. Bobby of Westlake, OH and James R. Reese of New Port Richey, FL; sisters Deborah S. Reese of Cleveland, OH, Christine L. Seedhouse (Matt) of Westlake, OH, Susan R Warwick (John) of Chandler, AZ; stepfather Stephan A. Bobby of Chandler, AZ; aunt Sharon George of Mesa, AZ; nephews Stephan J. Lamer of Chandler, AZ, Brian P. Baldwin of Lakewood, OH, Alexander C. Ita of Westlake, OH; and many cousins. Jim has an extended family of brothers and sisters that will forever remain in his heart and the hearts of his family. Their love and support had no boundaries.
