I’ve known Jess for about 50 years so I have many fond memories of him. We use to have spaghetti dinners and watch bull fighting on our little black and white tv when he came over to visit Linda at our apartment. That is only one memory. There are so many more. I know Jess is no longer in pain and with our Lord. He will be playing the guitar and singing his country tunes and telling his jokes. You were a good man Jesse and we will always love you.
