Dear Scott, Becky, David & Jeannie, and your entire family,

We are so saddened to learn of Uncle Jesse's passing. We have such fond memories of him from family get togethers at the Ramos Roost(s) and from the beach trip to the Florida panhandle. And the wonderful time at Grace Point for Thanksgiving and Jeannie's 50th "wretched purple" birthday party, was so great with both families together!!! He had such a zest for life and loved spending time with his family and laughing together. His smile that lit up his whole face will live forever in our minds. We look forward to that glorious day when we all meet at Jesus' feet.

All our love,
Guy & Sheri

Dear family of Jesse,
Jesse was such a friendly kind hearted man. When he was able, he would come to the CSC and sit in the sale room and talk. We always looked forward to his visits and his friendly greetings and hugs at church. We will miss him, lots, but look forward to seeing that welcoming smile when Jesus comes again. God bless your whole family at this this time.
Larry and Carol Boughman

Jesse, was one of the sweetest people I have ever known. He truly cared about everyone. I always loved talking, and praying with Jesse. He was truly a man of god. Jesse was like family to me. I will miss my ole Buddy so much.
Until we meet again Jesse. We love you.

Jesse was one of the nicest, kindest people I have ever had the privilege of meeting. Even in the face of adversity and challenge, he ALWAYS had a smile on his face, a positive thing to say, and an encouraging outlook on life. He considered himself lucky and set an example for how others should live. Jesse was a kind-hearted, humble man that I will never forget and am blessed to have had the opportunity to get to know and take care of. I even got to see his wonderful collection of clocks that he was so proud of. Sleep well my friend and be free from discomfort. We will meet again!
