Official press release:

On January 17, 2018, KIRRA vocalist/rhythm guitarist Jesse Williamson tragically passed away due to an auto accident.

As an incredibly young and talented man, nobody thought Jesse would be gone so soon. He lived his days to the fullest and touched the lives of so many. We are all eternally grateful for the time we had with Jesse. The Pavement Entertainment family deeply mourns his loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with Jesse’s friends, family, and KIRRA.

Bassist Ryne McNeil says:

Jesse was a super infectious person. When he would smile, everyone around him couldn’t help but smile, too. We were friends for years, and he was as much a brother to me as my actual ones. I’m going to miss him deeply every day, and live through our music like he did.”

Lead guitarist Daxton Page comments:

Jesse was one of the most talented singers I’ve had the pleasure of knowing. He was like a brother to me and I’m going to miss him.”

Drummer Zach Stafford shares:

Jesse was an amazing person and friend to all. He was my brother and I’ll never forget the great times we had over the years. He will be missed insurmountably by all who knew him.”

Since Jesse believed so much in KIRRA and music, the band wishes to honor his memory by continuing their upcoming tour with Nothing More in February. The details of the tour are currently being figured out.
