James P. Sebesta, of Cornwall, NY entered into eternal rest on January 26, 2023 at Westchester Medical Center in Valhalla, NY. He was 55 years old.

A family statement reads: James LOVED camping at Neversink River Campground, NASCAR, having fun with family. From an early age, he loved tinkering with things, learning how they worked and how to fix them. He was into creating interesting meals for his family to try.
