    So sorry to hear about Jesse. One of a kind. He will be missed greatly and we are very glad we were able to meet him, work with him and have fun with him through the years. Time sometimes is unfair and makes no sense. He is now driving and playing with tractors with his Dad, Mom and brother. Mid States wont ever be the same, but he will still be with us having fun. He will always remain close to us and will only be a thought and memory in our hearts. Til we meet again buddy. Thoughts hugs and prayers to his family.

    I cared for Jesse for short while and he remembered me by chocolate caramel perfume 🙂 when I first that was first thing he said was chocolate. The last time I spent time with him in the hospital before he passed he recognized me not by sight but my smell. He will be forever remembered in my heart. I was blessed to have known him and his family for the the time GOD allowed…. <3 shhuhus

    Carol and family, We were so sad to read about Jesse in the paper. We met Jesse when he was 14 and have always enjoyed him so much! We had not seen Jesse for quite a while. We used to see Jesse and Carol at Cracker Barrel. With all our love and sympathy Lyle and Rosemary Hunt

    I miss you every day Jess. I miss your jokes and your bright outlook on everything. I probably got you into more “projects” than you ever thought a son in law could but you were always ready to help with a smile. You fought a good fight. I guess God needed a handyman, jokester and friend. He now has the best. Love you.
