Obituary of Brian Fenn Jobson

Brian Fenn Jobson, 72, of Essex passed away peacefully after a brief illness on February 1, 2023. Born in Hyannis, Massachusetts on January 16, 1951, he was the son of the late Robert F. and Enid (Beyer) Jobson. Brian was raised in Larchmont, New York. His family were active sailors and Brian spent much of his childhood both in the Larchmont Yacht Club Junior Racing Program and competing with his family. He graduated from Mamaroneck High School and went on to receive a BS in Biology from Curry College in Milton, Massachusetts. Brian found fulfillment in a career filled with travel and people. Brian was an Applications Engineer for MacDermid Inc. (Waterbury, CT) for over 30 years and greatly enjoyed serving clients worldwide, including China, Singapore and Thailand. He retired in 2015. He and his wife, Susan (Martin) Jobson moved to Essex, CT where he was an active member of the Dry Pants Model Yacht Club. In his spare time, he enjoyed boating, gardening, bird watching, and trap shooting but above all loved spending time with his family including his “granddogs.” Brian is survived by his wife Susan (Martin) Jobson, son Eric and daughter Erin and their spouses Margaret and Hal as well as his cherished grandchildren Sophia and Scarlett Jobson, and Graham and Ashton Rechler, and his “granddogs” Boomer and Hunter. He is predeceased by his sister Jillian (Jobson) Poindexter but survived by brother-in-law Charles Poindexter and niece Lindsay Poindexter. Brian's family would like to thank the amazing cardiac and pulmonary teams at Yale New Haven Hospital for the support and comfort they gave him in his final days. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Essex Library or Essex EMS. A memorial service will be held on Saturday February 11th at 11 a.m. at The First Congregational Church in Essex, CT, 6 Methodist Hill. To share a memory or to leave condolences please visit
