My sincere sympathy goes out to the family of Jesse Brown. Jess worked for my father at G & J Pistacchio Trucking for many years. I worked in the office and processed Jess' freight bills and prepared his payroll. My father always admired Jess' mechanical and driving skills. He was a wonderful employee! Rest in peace, Jess. You have completed your final trip and are finally home! God bless you!
Sincerely, David J. Pistacchio
