He loved his job and loved his students.

He took great pride, integrity and love in his career.

The passion he had was remarkable.

He wanted to do all he could to help anyone.

He impacted so many individuals.

Jesse’s contagious smile at laughter made the deepest impression on anyone.

He was always so happy, funny, outgoing, and admirably uplifting.

Jesse loved collecting numerous items, sports memorabilia, music records, AM/FM radios, cast iron pans — and perfectly cooking in them.

He loved movies and setting up the projector outside for a movie after a barbeque dinner.

His home was his castle and his family was his pride and joy.

Jesse will be deeply missed, always honored, and forever spoken of.

We love you.
