Jesse and I knew each other many years ago but reconnected when he was in McAllan. If we got on the phone it felt like we had just talked yesterday whether we had, or it had been a year or two. He always was one to give a lot of details about the technical side of whatever he was explaining, but the main thing that I was so impressed with was how he often spoke about patients and their comfort when he was nursing. He was truly sympathetic and concerned. I will miss his silly, random text messages and how bad he was at spelling. My deepest sympathies go out to his siblings and extended family who he loved very much.

Jesse was a good friend for many years. Met him early on, I guess he was still just a teenager at the time, and we shared a lot of laughs, some tears, and a whole bunch of memories.

He will be dearly missed.

Dear family, I am so sorry to hear of Jesse’s passing. He worked for me at UTPA’s nursing department for many years. He was brilliant and such an asset to us because of his knowledge of technology. I pray that he finally has found peace.
