My condolences to you and the family. My heart goes out to you at this time because I know he loved you all so much. I was privileged to work with Jesse at Bellaire Southwest and Advantage Funeral Home for 20 years. He always had a smile on his face and some witty comments. I will forever be grateful to him for taking the time and showing me to be a better funeral director. He was not only our manager he was also my friend. I am so glad that we were able to visit with him and just laugh a few days before his passing. I will miss his smile and laughter but above all his friendship. May you rest in peace Jesse.

My heart breaks for you and your family. Jesse was such a warm and caring soul, and I always enjoyed spending time with him. His departure leaves a void in my heart. I will always cherish the times I got to spend with both of you. I'm sorry I'm unable to be there for the services, but please know you all are in my thoughts and prayers. Fly high, Tio, and I'll see you on the other side! All my love to you, Patsy and family. God bless.
