Darlene, I didn't have the good fortune to meet you. Jesse and I were friends at Grant Jr. High and Sandia High School. Too many memories to list(and some shouldn't be listed). But a condensed tale of him, back in the day, is that you couldn't have a better friend and a guy who raised the 'excitement level'. He was tough skinned, great sense of humor and had his friends' backs. I only talked to him a few times since graduation; the last time a couple of years ago. Our conversations seemed to take up from where they left off so long ago. All who knew Jesse then and now are deeply saddened. The best to you and your family. With sincerest sympathies. Paul Morrow. New Mexico.
