“The value of a man should be seen in what he gives and not in what he is able to receive” – Albert Einstein.
Jesse was an exceptional man and colleague, he was always willing to help others in any way possible and never asked for anything in return, unless it involved his computer or smart phone, he could never quite figure those two out, from trying to save a picture of Jeanette riding the mower and making it his background picture or trying to save all of the pictures of his grandbabies to a separate folder so he wouldn’t lose them, or when writing emails he would always ask me to proof read and add some “fancy words” to make it sound better. Jesse was a very hard working and dependable man, He always had a funny nickname for everyone, and always making jokes to keep everyone laughing. He was so proud to talk about his kids and especially his grandbabies, his desk walls were full of pictures of all of them and couldn’t wait to retire so he could spend more time with them as well as friends. Lilli and Bubba immediately put him back to work as their new bus driver, taking them to school and back home. In his career he worked with passion, integrity and energy, our sorrow is lessened only slightly with the comforting thought that we had the privilege to know and work with him. Jesse was also known as “the legend” he knew literally everyone, if you needed help with anything he knew a guy or gal and would pull out his phone, make a quick phone call and the problem was solved even it if wasn’t work related. We will miss his sayings “there is no budget for a stomach” “money in the bank” “I’m the legend” “I’m an athlete” just to name a few. Our lives will be empty in the areas that he had brightened for us.

My Gampi was many things to me and to everyone else. To me, he was my best friend, partner in crime, ..my Grandfather. I would go to him for everything and I would go everywhere with him. I used to tell him by the time I was 20 he was going to be tired of me. We always had the best time. He would tell me I wish you were 4 again, Bc I couldn’t argue with him. Back then he was a legend. The way he was, ther is no one like him in this world. My Gampi was one of a kind. I will miss him, all the water fights in the yard, all the jokes, all the smack we used to say to each other. I will even miss when he used to mess with my feet, so I would turn around and hold his hand while we were watching TV. January 30 is the day I lost a part of me, but I know he is in a better place and watching over us and he better be watching me on Thursday when I’m playing my game and making points so he can’t talk smack about me not being able to anymore ....I love my Gampi and I will make him proud so he can brag to GOD about how wonderful his Grandaughter is. I love you forever Gampi.

Jesse was a great guy, a great neighbor. If we were both outside he’d always holler my name “Jessicaaa” I’ll always remember. Or sometimes when I was out washing my car he’d come over and ask me how work was & how the Rangers are doing, he even taught me a better way of drying my windows on my car.. with newspaper lol, he seen I was using a lot of paper towel and he went back to his house and gave me a bunch of newspaper paper to use. He will be greatly missed in the neighborhood ❤️ Thoughts & prayers Jeanette, Brandi & family!

My friend...you will be sincerely missed. I will always remember you yelling my name up the hallway and the advice you gave. I will remember to put family first as you "preached" and not work so hard. Thank you for your friendship. Heaven definitely has an Angel....

I will never forget the many Friday night dinners at Trevino's with Jesse, Jeanette, Louis and Bertha many years ago. He was always the voice of reason that usually always started long debates at the table and then he would grin and laugh at all the mayhem he had helped start. I am sad I lost touch with you guys and feel deep sorrow and sadness for you and your family from his passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
