Jesse always had a smile and some positive thoughts. I only knew him for about one year. I hope his son will take away all of Jesse's traits and carry them while he grows up to inspire others.

My cousin was a happy kid always smiling and that’s how I’ll always remember him. Our deepest condolences on behalf of their tia Lupe, myself and my brother Marco to my Tio Jesse, Vane, Carlos and the extended family.
