I only knew Jesse for a little while, but I was so impressed how he joined and became so active at church, even when he had to start traveling.
Leslie, my heart is breaking for you. I have been where you are and made it to the other side, even though it was not easy or quick. It is a hurt that seems as though it will never heal. I pray that you will find comfort in the memories you made together.

Jesse,

Ill never forget the way you welcomed me into the Dallas Group family. I had just moved 5.5 hours away from all of my friends and family, and you made me feel like one of yours immediately. From laughs at work to fishing on Rough River for Stripers, you are truly a great friend and better soul. I will miss you dearly.

Jesse my friend,
You were such an easy person to love. You drew so many to you with your compassionate heart and you unfailing kindness. Sometimes I wish you could have looked at yourself through the eyes of those of us who love you. Maybe then you would have known just how precious you are. Thank you for your music, your kindness, your friendship and most of all your love. I’ll see you someday at the other end of forever. Until then I’ll miss you. I Love you brother.

Jesse's smile could light up a room! He was quick with a hug and I will miss his beautiful spirit.
We shared February 25th this year as birthday night at the Spiritual Underground, I will never forget the joy in his words and the brightness of his eyes. We will always be brothers Jesse in our battles.
Rest in peace now and thank you for all you did for us!

My heart breaks for all who knew and loved Jessie. As our neighbor at the lake, Jessie was always quick with a smile filled with kindness and warmth. He was always willing to help any of us at the dock or in our yards. Truly a light for all to see. God bless the family during this difficult time

Dear Leslie & Family,

I had the pleasure of working with Jesse at the Dallas Group for over 6 years via the NJ office. I also met him in person via company events and visiting Jeffersonville.

Jesse was a great co-worker and all around guy. May he Rest In Peace.

In Sympathy,

Jesse was a great guy to serve with on our church council and also a cool dude to have as a Confirmation mentor to my son Ryan. His musical talent and friendship will be a memory my family will forever share.
