I hated hearing about this, and it has been on my mind a lot this past month. I met Jess in 4th grade, we reconnected and had quite a few classes together our last 2 years at FHS. I can still vividly remember playing Goldeneye in his room, messing around downstairs with the pool table, and just goofing off in general. He was a genuinely funny guy that loved a good joke, and he was certainly one of a kind. I wish I had stayed in touch over the years man. You will be missed by more people than you can imagine.
