such fond memories of cousins club gatherings in Dobbs Ferry. Jessie and Vince were always so welcoming to us kids. His shoe store in Eastchester was the coolest place. My mom would drive all the way there from Queens on shoe outings. Jessie will always hold a special place in my heart.

I am saddened by Jesse’s passing, but comforted in knowing that his soul is in a better place.
When I think back to the many memories I have of Jesse, they are all good. A true gentlemen who was always available to offer advice when needed, and sage advice it was.
A great businessman who was always seeking new ideas, and more often than not ahead of his competitors in the shoe industry. A great dad, grandad and baseball fan and historian.
Our thoughts and prayers to Joyce, Wendy, and his entire family that you may find comfort and solace knowing that he will be well taken care of in the after life.
With much love,
Gary & Donna Nava
