Jesse Ray Voight, of Braham, passed away on Monday, January 3, 2022 at the United Hospital in St. Paul, MN. He was 48 years old.

Jesse was born on November 9, 1973 in Mora, Minnesota to Joyce (Voight) and Robert Mattson. He grew up in Braham, graduating from Braham High School in 1992. Jesse enlisted in the United States Navy but was given a medical discharge before completing basic training. He returned home in Braham where for the next few years he worked for several different local companies as a welder. In 1998 he began working side by side with his Dad as an electrician in his business, Bob’s Electric. In March of 2016, Jesse began working at East Central Energy in Braham and he loved his current job as a meter service technician.

In September of 1991, Jesse met the love of his life, Jackie Stigen. They made their home on a farm north of Braham where they raised beef cattle, pigs, chickens, and turkeys. They were blessed with the birth of their daughter Morgan on January 29, 2007. Jesse loved riding dirt bike; a passion he passed on to his daughter and together they created “Voight Racing”. They enjoyed riding together and traveling around Minnesota competing with their Moto family.

Jesse loved the outdoors. Hunting for deer, pheasant, turkey, geese, and squirrel were some of his favorite times. In recent years, Jesse was a member of the Grasston Lions. He will be dearly missed by his loving family and friends.

Jesse was preceded in death by his grandparents, mother Joyce, and sister-in-law Tammy Voight.

He is survived by his soulmate, Jackie Stigen; daughter Morgan Voight; father Robert “Bob” Mattson; siblings, Jamie Mattson, Jennifer (Fred) Lundin, and Jason Voight; mother-in-law Maxine (Mike) Silva; father-in-law Richard “Dick” (Susan) Stigen; Jackie’s siblings, Jodi Michalek, Paul Stigen, Sam Stigen, Anna Stigen, Michael (Missy) Silva, Rocky (Amanda) Silva, Shane (Jamey) Silva, Miles (Jamie) Silva; many other relatives and countless friends.

  1. Jackie, Morgan, Bob, Jamie, Jenni,
    My heart breaks for the loss of your wonderful Jesse.
    I can hear his laugh and picture the sh*t eating grin when he was up to something.
    He loved his family and he would do anything to help the ones he loved.
    He might be gone, but he will never be forgotten.
    I believe he will live on in each and every one of our hearts forever ❤️

    Much love to you all,
    George and Lisa

  2. Love, hugs and prayers to the Voight and Stigen families! No amount of time together is ever enough! Rest in God’s loving care Jesse! ♥ Dave and Terry Nelson

  3. That smile! You can’t say Jesse’s name without picturing that smile in your mind. I didn’t know him well, just in a “round-about” sort of way, but he always seemed to have a smile ~ what a wonderful thing to be remembered for. I wish I had perfect words to heal your broken hearts, but I don’t; mine feels broken too. But I do live in the hope and the belief that life IS eternal ~ and love IS immortal. I hope you can hold tight to that too. Praying love, peace and strength for all of you.

  4. Jesse was a great guy and a wonderful friend. Condolences go out to all who knew and loved him. Heartfelt sympathy goes out to Jacki, Morgan and all of his family.

  5. What a tragedy- It seems like yesterday we were all out at the track riding this fall. Such a giving and caring person. Ran out of gas that day and he was quick to borrow a gallon. I regret never getting a chance to repay him. Similar age, same likes, same family first mentality. This is has a lot of gravity for me, and certainly not about me, but wanted to share the impact he has/had on many… who may not be willing to share or express. He was a good man with great character!. God bless you, and watch over your family!!! RIP buddy.

  6. I met Jesse when he came to work at East Central Energy. He often stopped in my office to chat. He was like a ray of sunshine. His smile. His upbeat attitude. What I remember most are his pictures and videos of Morgan racing. He was so proud. And rightly so. But it wasn’t just pride in her accomplishments, it was the genuine love a dad had for his daughter. We lost one of the really good guys. May God bless all his loved ones.

  7. Jacki,
    I am so sorry to learn of your loss. Jesse sounds like an amazing person. Don’t know if you remember me, I was a first grade teacher in Braham and you were friends with my daughter Angie when you were in first grade. Prayers for you and your daughter.

  8. Still trying to wrap my head around this. Been looking at your snow covered truck in the lot. Will always remember the way you addressed me and called my name when we talked. I used to call you when I saw you driving in the neighborhood and tell you “ I got eyes on you “ and get a chuckle from you. Guess it’s the other way around now. Thanks for being a great friend, neighbor and co-worker that I could always count on. Rest easy Jesse.

  9. Jesse I am still in disbelief, we have been friends for almost 20 yrs started out as coworkers at Bobs electric and you quickly became one of my best friends. You were a mentor to me anytime I needed advice you were the one I would call, I am not saying it was always good advice haha. It was also fun watching you grow into a great man and even more a wonderful father to Morgan words can not describe how I feel you definitely took a piece of me when you left, and will be greatly missed.
    Ride Red and ride on buddy

  10. First our heartfelt sympathy to the Mattson-Voight-Stigen families. The loss of Jesse is a ripple effect felt by so many. We were so lucky to have Jason, Jesse, Jenny and Jamie as neighbors when our kids were growing up. I can still see them all playing and laughing in the backyard. Even when my parents would visit, my mom would always comment on Jesse’s cute smile. His smile could charm his way into anyone’s heart and people loved being around him. He touched so many lives and he will always be remembered.
    With much love – John and DeeAnn

  11. Jesse and I rode quite a few trails together in the old days. Great guy will be riding Red in the sky. He will be missed.

  12. Jesse, was my go-to when ever I had motorcycle questions. I got to know him through our shared affinity for Honda motorcycles. When it was time for my son, Erik, to get into riding, we went straight to Jesse. He invited us over to his house to discuss pros and cons of the different types and styles of bikes. This helped Erik make a decision.Although it was a Yamaha, Jesse was still willing to help Erik with any technical questions at any time. Jesse was always a bright spot whenever we crossed paths during the work day.He was exuberant about his daughter, Morgan and doted over her. Jesse was a great guy and we I’ll miss him. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jackie, Morgan and the rest of Jesse’s friends and family.

  13. Jesse will be deeply missed by many, and was a very likeable guy. If I had to pick a father of the year, Jesse would be at the top of the list. He so loved sharing stories about his daughter Morgan, and dirt bike riding. Wishing Jackie, Morgan and family peace and comfort by keeping all the great memories alive. Hugs!

  14. I have so many great memories of Jesse. From running around the neighborhood as kids to adulthood Jesse always looked out for me and let me tag along. He didn’t need to as I was the youngest but he always did, he was just a genuine person like that. I can hear his laugh and see his smile as I write this. He was such a great guy who would help anyone and he will be so missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Jackie, Morgan, and all of Jesse’s family.

  15. Oh the memories! Jesse was always such a good, genuine friend to me. No matter how many miles or years between running into each other, there was always a hug (he gave the best hugs!) and that smile! I can still hear him saying a loud “Hey, HP!!” and we’d pick right back up where we left off. Jackie and Morgan, he loved you both so very much. He was so proud of you! He will always be with you.
    Mattson, Stigen, Voight families – you are all so loved.
    All my love,
    Heather (Peterson) Sletten

  16. It was such a shock to hear of Jesse’s passing.
    I am retired from ECE, however, I worked with Jesse and he was such a joy. He always had a smile and loved to pull a prank. He was a really great guy and will be missed. Prayers for his family.❤️

  17. Mom always referred to Jamie as her 8th child which made her my 4th sister. Losing a sibling will leave a large hole in your heart which will eventually get smaller, but never close. May your family and friends share peace and blessings remembering Jesse.

  18. So many memories. Being cousins, we spent a lot of time together even though we were what seemed like so many miles apart. Always picking up right where we left off. I don’t think I ever heard Jesse call me by my full name.lol It was always “Hey Jano, how’s it goin”. And never goodbye, always “see ya later”. Jesse spent a lot of his summers at our grandparents or at our house on the farm. We had many adventures from exploring the old junk pile to learning how to drive a manual to grabbing the electric fence for a pinch of snus(Jesse, not me😄). More recent years it was always fun hearing how Morgan was kicking butt on the bike. And how she won the fish house (talk about lucky!).
    Jesse, you are so missed already! Much love to Jackie, Morgan, Jennifer, Jamie, Jason, Bob and the rest of the family.
