Jesse always enjoyed working with his hands whether it was tinkering with cars, wood working, drawing, or numerous other things. He also loved to fish, listen to music, and gather with his friends and family. You could often find Jesse playing his guitar.
Jesse was a loving father, brother, son, uncle and a friend to many. He believed the world revolved around his granddaughters and he would move mountains for the people he loved if he could. Even with his weak heart, he always loved strong. Jesse will be missed by so many and may he finally have peace...
