I knew Jesse only briefly. He honored my father, Frank Valdivieso, and I with a brief visit at his folks house on the west-side a couple of years ago. We were all veterans of the U.S. military. I will always remember him as a cousin, a vet, and a railroad man. May God have mercy on his soul, and Jesus give him eternal rest.
