Obituary of James Jesse Rumsey

James Jesse Rumsey November 15, 1965-November 24, 2020 Grand Prairie, TX James Jesse Rumsey, a resident of Grand Prairie, TX, died peacefully on Tuesday, November 24, 2020, after a brave fight against colon cancer. He was 55 years old. The son of the late Paul Hyde, Jr. and Trudy Hyde of Middletown, NY, James was born on November 15, 1965 in Middletown, NY. He was a graduate of Warwick Valley High School, Warwick, NY. He was a dock worker at YRC Freight/Local 707, Maybrook, NY. He retired after 27 years of dedicated service. Survivors include his wife, Nicole Hansen Rumsey; his son Tyler Rumsey and daughter Ariana Rumsey of Grand Prairie, Texas; his son Branden Rumsey of Middletown, NY. He is also survived by his mother, Trudy Hyde, his brother Adrian "AJ" Rumsey and wife Kelley Rumsey and nephews Christian and Ryan Rumsey all of Middletown, NY. He is also survived by numerous aunts, uncles and cousins and nieces and nephews. James enjoyed many hobbies and interests during his lifetime; including Kart Racing, bowling, competitive billiards, playing and watching soccer, NASCAR, vacationing in the Caribbean, scuba diving and fostering for a golden retriever rescue. Although he was raised in NY, he was a lifelong Dallas Cowboys fan. What brought him the most joy were his three children. He faced his fear of heights to ride the big roller coasters with Branden which broke him in to do the same with Tyler and Ariana. He was often the only dad volunteering in Branden's classroom or volunteering at his school dances. He supported anything the kids were involved in, whether it was coaching soccer, camping with the Boy Scouts or selling cookies with the Girl Scouts. If he wasn't actively participating, he was in the stands or on a golf cart, cheering his kids on. Jim didn't fear dying, he feared not being here to watch his children's next accomplishments.
