    Julia-Chris-Jay-Robin — I respected Jesse so much-I would not be the gear head I am today if it were not for some of Jesse’s guidance he gave me in the day. Everyone will miss his one of a kind laugh that he had-he was such a nice man and a great father and husband-nothing can be said to make this hard time easier except he is with Dan and working on some kind of hot rod. God bless to all –Jim and Margie Strode

    Another member of the great FHS Class of 1950. Rest in Peace, Jesse.

    I attended Kyger School in the same class with Jesse and also 7th and8th grade. Our class was the last one to leave Kyger in January, as was the norm back then. We were in the same class until summer between 8th & 9th grade, when we all had the option to take summer school and then graduate with the 1950 class. Many of our classmates took this option along with Jesse. He was always a very thoughtful, kind young man, even in the lower grades. My condolences to the family. May God give you comfort and peace.
