Jesse Sepeda, age 52, of Marysville, died Friday, March 9, 2018 at OhioHealth Hospice Kobacker House in Columbus. He was an associate of Core Molding Technology (CMT) in Columbus since 1994, and was promoted to a supervisor in 2013. He was a stellar employee and was deeply committed to his occupation. However, his family was his ultimate passion. A loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and son, he was also a mentor to many athletes in the Marysville community. A baseball, football and wrestling coach, he revived the Marysville Mitts Travel Baseball Team during the early 2000’s and served as the team’s president for eight years. He also was head coach for the Marysville Youth Wrestling Organization for nine years, coached the Marysville Middle School wrestling program for four years and was head coach for eight years with the Marysville Youth Football Association. An outdoorsman, he enjoyed hunting, golfing and camping with his family. He also liked playing fast-pitch softball. He was a big Cincinnati Bengals, Reds and Ohio State Buckeyes fan and had a close affiliation with the OSU wrestling team. He was known as an incredibly charming, humble man with an infectious smile and laugh. He grew up in Fremont, Ohio and was a 1985 graduate of Fremont Ross High School where he was a member of the wrestling and football teams. He was born September 20, 1965 in Houston, Texas to Angelita Becerra Sepeda of Fremont and the late Juan Sepeda. He was also preceded in death by a nephew, Ronnie Sanchez; his father-in-law, Herbert Martin; and two brothers-in-law, Marvin Martin and Stephen Martin.
