Bandytown, W.Va — Fans mourn iconic West Virginia wild-man Jesco White, who died at his Boone County home after inhaling twin doses of lighter fluid and gas fumes Saturday.
Fans received a rude awakening who believed White finally got clean following the successes of Jescofest, a festival held in his honor, and the most recent Johnny Knoxville documentary “The Wild and Wonderful Whites.”
Documentary footage portrayed a clean and sober man, skirting only the throes of a very real cocaine addiction. No footage of inhalant abuse was released, so the news caught many off guard.
“I thought he was just on the cocaine,” said Bandytown resident Deanna Warrick, 33.
Authorities said they found White dead in the “Elvis room” – a wall-to-wall shrine of Elvis memorabilia erected by White as a monument to his bottomless rage.
For years, friends knew White suffered depression in the wake of the death of his wife, Norma Jean, but said they did not intervene because they did not know he was huffing paint thinner and gasoline, and feared physical assault.
“We didn’t want no trouble,” said Boyd Denton, 56, “we just wanted to believe Jesco was okay. But he wasn’t. He never was.”
A drug saturated private ceremony is being planned by the White family.

He is still alive and dancing dont you have better things to do…His sister is a little pissed over this LIE
Please tell Mamie I’m sorry :( j/k but seriously I would hate to upset the meanest ‘n toughest o’ th’bunch.
LMFAO. This was a great obit-esque story. Hahahahaha I especially loved “the drug saturated funeral. …” , YO. ALL THAT ARE PISSED- THERE ARE MEN, WOMEN, CHILDREN- YOUNG & OLD BATTLING FOR THEIR LIFE AGAINST TERMINAL ILLNESS… WISHING FOR JUST A FEW MORE BITS OF LIFE ..YOU HAVE THESE GROUP OF HALF-WITS TAKING THEIR LIVES FOR GRANTED. ITS FUCKING VILE TO SAY THE LEAST- SATAN RUNS THIS WORLD.
-HE ISNT GOING TO DIE FOR A VERY LONG TIME, HAVEN’T YA HEARD? ONLY THE *GOOD* DIE YOUNG. ….
You ain’t even a real pussy. There.
That sick fuck ain’t dead yet but he is brain dead
He is still alive. This is bullshit
Wow!!! Where do you get your information our Jesco is ALIVE & WELL!!!
You people make me sick just trying to make a quick buck or ride on his tailcoats.
This entire website is LIES LIES LIES!!!! No one has ever heard of this site before now!!!
LAME ASS CITY FOLK!
This is utter nonsense and anyone who believes it is a moron. The person who posted this must be a sad , lonely pathetic person who is crying out for attention. I have already given this too much time. nothing to see here folks.
Why would someone say this stuff about Jeco, he is not dead.
Jesco is not dead!! And who ever stated this is dead wrong about it!! Jesco is like a brother to me.He’s alive and doing well !!! This should be removed.False as all get out it is !!!
this is so sad that someone would put this on facebook and say that he is dead, even the worst people on earth do not deserve this, it’s a sick way at getting even it that is the intent, please keep you problems for someone to yourself i have enough to deal with in life without trash like this.
he is sittin in front of me drinkin beer right now , and laughing. get a life!!!!
Tell him The Internet Chronicle loves him.
“We’re all already dead, just alive to talk about it.”
Blaine Harden sure got this story wrong, I have requested this FAKE story be removed ASAP…
The family has requested this be taken down. I sent an e-mail to this website for mammie white asking so. If they have any question at hand, I included her phone number. I think they (the whites) need to start a lawsuit. There are several people who need there asses raked over the coals for false accusations like this.
False accusations? There is video evidence to support everything written here, except for Jesco’s satirical death. Only ignorant hicks and conspiracy theorists believe anything found on this website (and there are plenty enough, God knows you’re one of them). Mamie didn’t request the story be taken down – You emailed her saying you think she should want us to take it down.
Mamie only said it is bullshit, which it obviously is. And so is your comment.
Jesco’s not dead! I just saw him dancing on the wing of a Dreamliner landing at Memphis Airport!
No, I just saw Jesco fending off six state troopers *and* a horde of zombies with half a bottle of Fighting Cock whisky and a pair of nail clippers.
There’s was this meth lab ‘sploded a few blocks away, and before the firetruck even got there, Jesco stood out front and inhaled the entire fire like some sort of Superman. Saved three worthless lives. And a kitten.
i live in wv. not too far from the white family. if this was true it would be huge headlines. telling lies about death is not funny. do you think just because celebrities are on t.v. they’re not real. they are and so are their families. how cold hearted.
You mean that wasn’t Jesco dancing with Wynona on Dancing with the Used-to-be Stars? Well, I do declare…
go fuck yourself and she did request it be taken down you ignorant piece of shit!
Fuck you too, bo white.
Free back to their face you worthless puke bag
What is “free back to their face” supposed to mean? What an illiterate twat.
I’d eat the ass on any of them white gals
Oh, geez, you can’t be serious. All those white trash White bitches are nasty, hideous, dirty old skanks. A couple had decent tits but you still couldn’t touch ‘em without wearing welder’s gloves. And if you went down on one you’d get some awful, incurable disease. Even if they’d recently been shot up with penicillin you’d loose the enamel on your teeth and get warts all over your tongue.
[…] Jesco White dead at 59 http://www.chronicle.su/news/dancing…te-dead-at-59/ […]
I just had the pleasure of seeing the wonderfull whites documentary and really enjoyed it. I think he’s an awesome dancer. I hope this about him being dead is bullshit Cause I’d love the chance to see him do his thang again God bless and best wishes to the whites from a true fan
The most telling moment of the second 90s documentary was the distrustful stare in Jesco’s eyes when talking to the mustached man at the airport – the guy who said “we just love you” with that stupid grin on his face. Jesco was rightly suspicious at that point he was being made fun of. He even said, “I’m glad that you’re behind me, too,” emphasizing “behind” with that look of uncertainty in his eyes. Jesco’s smart.
“We’re all already dead, just alive to talk about it.”
Yea me too, I thought they were very intertaing, if you didn’t like it I’m sad for you, cause that was intertaing. They were a family that done it, all, together as a family. All of it according to their way of life. I was just wondering what ever happened to Jessco. Then I read thays hes dead. I’m hoping not.
Go to Jesco’s Facebook! He’s “very much ‘alive'”!
Look out Dawg!! Them low down trashy mother fuckers better watch they ass’s! Rock on Bo! You sexy ass,magic meth pussy smellin biotch! I fucking love you!
Bo’ I wanna be with you in a doggie style state of mind.
I hope he is alive, he & his family are true standup & tell it like it is people!!!!!!!! Would love to see Jesco perform live.. Anyone know if he will be performing in Florida anytime in the near future?
can’t find an obit online anywhere so he is alive :)

Well, even though it’s been ten years since you somehow managed to scribble that stupid, pointless gibberish about your near brush with greatness — IN ALL CAPS, NO LESS — but I just had to comment: So fucking’ what? It’s not like the time you showered naked with Tom Cruise at the gym and offered to suck his little Scientology pecker. You should have led with that one.

Hit me back you f******
ONE QUESTION? WHY has the Department of Social Services let any of these inbred animals (and I’m being very kind) keep their children? Why are these inbreds allowed to raise their spawn? I think DSS in West Virginia needs to be investigated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is absolutely the saddest documentary I have EVER seen. Those poor, poor children being exposed to guns, drugs, jail, violence. If ever a bloodline needed to be exterminated..IT’S THIS ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Shut fuk up boy
As good a job as they’re doing in destroying themselves..it’s NOT FAST ENOUGH!

Is Francis Curnutte, who is the lawyer in this movie related to Steve Curnutte – the Nashville singer-songwriter?
These white trash inbred keep breeding and creating more white trash, I feel sorry for the kids exposed to their thieving and drug use. Someone please put an end to it and just blow them all up.
If jesco is dead I’m extremely sorry for ur loss, I am just hearing of him and getting to watch his documovies. I love his dancing and his straight forward manner. Mamie and mousie are my favorites. I love their, “no bullshit” attitudes. I would like to hang out with y’all someday. I’ve read a few if the less flattering comments people have posted, and I think they’re all full if shit. They’re angry because they can’t be wild and wonderful too. Lol
I hope Kirk got to keep her baby, and I hope “Dennis” gets what he deserves for treating Kirk the way he did, she should’ve killed that motherfucker. My love to the whites. Durkey, make us proud, u are the next generation of whites, after all, but no one can compare to the dancing outlaw
The individual who created this website has obviously never heard of Karma.
I just recently watched the WWWOWV. I have watched it several times now and think it is a very good documentary. I live in the foothills of the Appalachain mountains in North Carolina and found it amusing that although in West Virginia, the accent of the mountains is the same as here. Terrible post . Long live Jesco!!!!
To the white family,ROCK ON BROTHERS AND SISTERSJust learned about the Famous Jesco and your documentaries,WE NEED TO GET A SERIES SHOW STARTED , IM really in to those reality shows and you guys get it 100PERCENT, WHY DONT SOME OF THESE RICH ASS BASTARDS SHELL OUT SOME BUCKS FOR THE ONES WHO COULD SEE A CHANGE IN THEIR LIVES P.S. WE MAY BE KIN,LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU GUYS SINCERELY ALAN AND TAMMY WHITE PLEASE HOLLAR AT US!!!!!!
How did I miss trollin’ this comment thread. I must’ve been on vacation, or maybe I was still too high from all the booze/e/hash & weed, plus paranoid from fishfag tellin’ me that chrsitmaz I was rottening my brain. Deliverance is a cinematic masterpiece.
Where do I get some of that White Pussy?
All you need to do is set an old tire on fire and then put it out by dumping horseshit on it. It would smell exactly like the pussy on any of those white trash White skanks.
When you keep knocking on the devils door………………
I’m so sorry for the qdusrtuction and life Talmp and downstate. Got needs us to pull together with one another in savinf .ives lives.
I’m so sorry for the people that hve npower yet. , it’s coming and fast!

There were people from Huston that volunteered that vollimneered their own time to hel our neighbors.
FEMA must work kinks out Pof thief system.
Just BC myfriends bought a beautiful home 3 years ago and now needs about $100,000 to restore the house. They have been planning on moving from there and WHAM, Harvy came in and distrliod their house . They were not in a flood zone, that now is insurance works.
FEMA gave them some money, not nearly enough to fix the house
I pray in time more money will arrive.
God bless everyone
Mike in NY: It is now 2022 and I bet you’re still hungover from the night you posted that illiterate drivel in 2017. At least I hope you were drunk. It would be tragic if you were that stupid AND that uneducated.
Putting everything else aside, you must “give the devil his due”. Jesop White is a very talented man. Check out the clip where he dances on the picnic table, keeping perfect time with Hank III . A flawless performance. Even if you can’t appreciate it yourself, you must realize that you would never know of the Whites of West ‘by God ‘Virginia if it wasn’t for the exceptional talent of Jesop White.

Hello blogger, i’ve been reading your articles for some time and
I really like coming back here. I can see that you probably don’t make money
on your website. I know one interesting method of earning money, I think you will like it.

Hi. I see that you don’t update your page too often. I know
that writing articles is time consuming and boring.
But did you know that there is a tool that allows you to create new articles using existing content
(from article directories or other pages from your niche)? And
it does it very well. The new articles are high quality
and pass the copyscape test. You should try miftolo’s tools
This is quiet the most ignorant bs I’ve ever read! My uncle is alive and doing well! Judge not thy be judged! If people would use a little more of the morals and values of life, it would be a much better world!
Did he let a gay man do him in a bit for cocaine? That’s what the people are saying!
Rumor has it Jesco let a gay man do his butt for some cocaine. Any of you Boone county residents know if there is any truth to this?
False information and corrupt news must be stopped….but how. We read from sources we trust, just to be lied to and bullied. Why I ask? Could this article have reported something interesting and true, instead, about the current life and settled down Jesco White and his wife Alida. I sure would have appreciated that more than a pack of lies.
