I am lost for words and left with so many unanswered questions. With this photo I would like to share how we became the “Three Musketeers“ that Jesse Mother Brenda gave us. Aaron was the 2nd cousin born, Amber (me) was the 3rd cousin born, Jesse was the 4th cousin born. We were born not to far apart from each other. We grew up thick as thief’s. If you had 1 the others were not far behind. We have suffered together, lived together, loved together, laughed together. We are family. Jesse and I share the same birthday. It was the best birthday present I think a 2 year old could get. Jesse was the lucky one he would get the chocolate cake, I would get the vanilla cake. I told him how that wasn’t fair I want chocolate cake. He told me not to worry that next year I will have chocolate cake. When that next year came there was 1 chocolate cake with both our names on it. He looked and said this is the way it was suppose to be 1 cake with both our names on it. Aaron & Jesse may not have been my biological brothers but Aaron & Jesse were the closest brothers the best brothers a girl could ask for. Jesse & I use to joke with our family all the time & say we were twins from another life time. To this day I hold that true. Now that you are not walking this earth I feel like I’m just wondering around. The day you past before Aaron called me I felt empty with no understanding why like I couldn’t breath. I now know I have lost my twin. Some maybe reading this and thinking whatever. Sadly we have our stories. The day Jesse was hit with a truck, I flipped my bicycle and injured my leg. I begged my aunt Rhea to call and check on Jesse and she got the call about his accident. If he bumped something I got the bruise. I hit something he got the bump. I had pneumonia, he had the common cold. It was crazy but it was our thing. You are truly missed! Now, then & 4ever. Rest easy my twin brother. We will be together again until then I’m gonna share our chocolate cake with you always!

Jessie is one in a million. I met him when he was just a young boy, and I knew from the moment I met him that he was a jokester. I remember when he met missy he told it and we all knew that she was the one for him. We didn’t get to see Jessie much since he went to the navy but that was ok cause we knew he was happy and in love with missy and her him. She brought him so much happiness and when u love someone the way we loved Jessie all we could be was happy for him. The news we got the other day was news we never thought we would get. Anyone that didn’t get to know him has missed out on knowing a great man that was so wonderful and he always left a everlasting memory on anyone that did get to meet him. So son I hope you know how proud you made us here in Raeford NC and how much you will be missed
Our prayers goes out to his wife n best friend Missy and to his five kids that he was so proud of.

Jesse was a great person and great sailor. He was always honest me and kept me straight and arrow at all times. I meet him as a very young sailor. Ever since then he kept pushing me to do better. I'm so very sorry for your lose. My prayers are with you and you family.
