Three-time NFR Team Roper Quinn Kesler Passes Away at Age 30

Kesler died on Feb. 26, 2024 and leaves behind his wife Jesse and daughter Quincy. May he Rest in Peace.

NFR team roper Quinn Kesler has passed away after a tragic accident.

The three-time qualifier to rodeo’s biggest stage was one of the 10 cowboys ever to make it as both a header and a heeler joining Trevor Brazile and Speed Williams among others. In 2015, he was the Resistol Rookie of the Year.

“Quinn served as a father figure, mentor, and friend to many. Just as he used to attract a crowd when he was roping (whether steers or just dummies), Quinn had the innate ability to draw people in. That was the only time he ever threw his rope wide: to gather as many people as he could. While he was so kind and made everyone feel welcome, he also had a personal touch that made you feel like you were his favorite. He established many one-on-one relationships that will be cherished by anyone privileged to know him. Among his family, he hands-down earned the title of “favorite uncle” from his adoring nieces and nephews and “platinum child” from his siblings,” part of his obituary read.

He was 30-years-old and is survived by his wife and 2-year-old daughter. Our thoughts and prayers are with his entire family.
