Pvt Tessier enlisted into the U.S. Army at Detroit MI on November 26, 1866. He was described as 5'7" tall, dark eyes, dark hair and fair complexion. His civilian occupation was listed as clerk.

On February 24, 1867, Tessier reported for duty at Ft Morgan in the Colorado Territory. He was assigned to Company L, 7th U.S. Cavalry. Company L was commanded by Lt James Calhoun, the brother-in-law of LTC George Armstrong Custer & Capt Tom Custer.

At Yorksville SC, Tessier's enlistment expired on November 26, 1871. He reenlisted back into Company L. During his enlistments his daily duties were listed as hospital steward, regimental clerk & assistant to the quartermaster. On January 13, 1872, his rank was listed as sergeant. On April 25, 1872, his rank was listed as private.

At the Battle of the Little Bighorn, Company L was attached to Custer's Battalion. Sometime during the battle Tessier was killed.

After the battle many bodies from Company L were found on or near Calhoun Ridge & Calhoun Hill.

Tessier's body was never reported as being identified. It is likely that his unidentified remains were buried on the battlefield, where they had been found.

In 1881 all known battlefield burials were moved to a mass grave on Last Stand Hill.
