Jesse Boyden passed away in his Kenilworth, NJ home on July 6, 2022 at the age of 33. A state champion wrestler and graduate of David Brearley High School, Jesse is remembered for his drive, determination, and huge smile.
In high school, besides his many wrestling achievements, Jesse also earned All-State Football honors his junior and senior years while a member of the 2006 N2G1 State Championship team and was an outstanding scholar as a member of the National Honor Society.
