Jesse and my mother Caroline were very close friends/cousins. My mom passed away just shortly before Jesse. I was so sad to hear of your loss. I went to visit mom a few times when Jesse was here and enjoyed his candor and stories. He had such a strong spirit, and love for life. I'll remember when we all went for a walk on Redondo Beach Pier (CA), and had ice cream cones. He will be missed. I am so happy to have met him.
