Jesse had a big heart and shared his craft with others. We loved the beautiful bird house he built for us and years later the intricate doll house with furniture and fixtures in every room. He was like a little brother to me and I am sorry to see him pass so soon. Rest in Peace little brother.

No words to express how sorry we are; Jesse and you all have always been like family to us. Jesse is in a much better place now and free of all pain. I hope this helps you get through this time. I am sure Dot had her arms wide open waiting for her son. My mother may have even had an apple pie ready for him. You will be missed Jesse, rest in peace now but please watch over your sisters and brothers.

I would like to extend my sincere condolences to the family. I was blessed with serving with Jesse and spent 3 days in a fox hole with him at Desert Warfare School, Indian Springs, NV. You learn a lot about someone in a fox hole. I worked with Jesse on many a night shift at Security as well. I remember him as a true professional and enjoyed my time with him. RIP my friend.
