Glen lived his life for the love of his family; all of whom loved him dearly in return. Glen was a hardworking over-achiever in everything he took on and was known for his relentless energy in every endeavor. He spent his early years in construction and eventually started his own company with Dennis Jumper; he was later a founding partner in Armstrong Construction, and then later a partner and owner of Master Bilt. In 1999, he ran for and won election as 2nd District Supervisor for Prentiss County and served in that position for 12 years. Never one to rest or sit at home, even in retirement Glen chose to work, and ran the Jumpertown Service Station. He was extremely proud of his family and grandchildren and could talk about any achievement of theirs for hours. Glen will be sorely missed by those who knew and loved him.
Visitation will be from 4 to 6 pm on Sunday, March 7, 2021 and a funeral service will be at Noon on Monday, March 8, 2021 at Kesler Funeral Home – Booneville Chapel on 114 Gaston Road, Booneville, Mississippi (https://www.keslerfuneralhome.com/booneville-chapel); with a brief visitation beginning at 11 am prior to the funeral. A processional for family and friends will convene to Jumpertown Cemetery following the funeral service.
The family respectfully requests that attendees wear masks and maintain social distancing in this time of grief and mourning. As much as Glen would be honored by anyone’s attendance, he would not want anyone to risk their health or lives to do so.
