Jesse L. Icenogle

Jesse L. Icenogle, 98, of Eustis, passed away Monday, June 24, 2024. Born in Coles County, Illinois, he graduated from Mattoon high school. In 1950, he married Norma Jean Larrew. His family moved to Casey, Il in 1958 after purchasing an insurance agency, which they later expanded into real estate. In 1970 he opened the Discount Building Center in Casey, which they operated until their retirement in 1994. In Casey, he built many affordable new family homes and started new neighborhoods in the city. Jesse was an active member of the Casey Lion’s Club, and the First Baptist Church of Casey, where he taught Sunday School and served as a Deacon for many years. As an avid boater, he and his family enjoyed many days boating and water skiing on local lakes. Jesse loved the Lord and would frequently share the message of salvation and tell others of how the Lord had led and helped him throughout his life. He and his wife relocated to Lake Mattoon in 1995, and became snowbirds, wintering in Lake County. In 2018 they moved to Tavares, where he was active in his community and attended the First Baptist Church, Mount Dora.
