Obituary of Jet Talbot
James Edward “Jet” Talbot, infant son of Raeleigh Carolann Talbot and Micah Edward Talbot, passed away Monday, November 14, 2022, at Tidelands Georgetown Memorial Hospital.
Jet was born on August 9, 2022, in Charleston. Even though he was born prematurely, Jet was the strongest baby in the NICU. After just a few weeks, Jet was ready to come home. He came out fighting, and grew from just four pounds to nine. He was notorious for pulling out his feeding tube in the hospital. He liked to watch Cocomelon & dancing fruits on YouTube, and take selfies with his sisters. Sitting on the porch, and being outside, were his favorite activities. Jet also loved to be walked, or ride in the car. He loved to smile, and brought joy to everyone around him.
Survivors include his mother and father of Georgetown; two sisters, Kinsleigh Talbot and Tatum Talbot both of Georgetown; maternal grandmother, Daphne Westbrooks (Chuck) of Georgetown; paternal grandparents, Mark and Vicki Talbot of Charlotte; maternal great grandmother, Debbie Wydham of Georgetown; paternal great grandparents, Ted and Mildred Purvis of Hartsville; two uncles, Jacob Talbot (Meghan) of Myrtle Beach and Jameson Westbrooks of Georgetown; two aunts, Jenna Cusack of Georgetown and Hannah Beasley (Reggi) of Charlotte; six cousins, Blakley Westbrooks, Michael James Westbrooks, Aniston Beasley, Miles Pressley, Cashton Westbrooks and Tyson Talbot; a special sister, Arden Cusack of Georgetown; special family members, Nancy and Al Cox of Georgetown; and numerous great aunts, great uncles and other cousins.
He was preceded in death by maternal great grandfather, James Richard "Tootsie" Cusack, Sr.; paternal great grandparents, Ted and Mary Talbot; a great aunt, Melissa Wilson; and a great uncle, Ed Talbot.
