  1. I am so very sorry to hear this. Brings back happy neighborhood memories of the kids playing together. May Jesse’s soul be at peace.

  2. I never met Jesse, but I do know how much his Mom, Christine, loved and misses him! My deepest condolences, Christine, you are not alone.

  3. I’m so sorry for your loss, Christine. Thank you for sharing a bit of your and Jesse’s story with our group.

  4. What can one say about Jesse? I hadn’t seen Jesse in years – well, decades, actually – when I learned of the tragedy of his passing. I knew Jesse when he was in my advanced math classes in elementary school. Jesse was a bright, alert child then, as well as respectful and kind to others, and generally a friendly, likable person. The world is a lesser place without him. My wish is for his family and friends to always remember the sweet person he was as a way to keep Jesse alive by keeping alive the great memories of him.

  5. We wish you and Sam peace as you deal with the aftermath of Jesse’s passing. We will always remember him and his pure heart and gentle nature. We regret not seeing him more in recent years, and that his struggle was so hard. We are thinking of you and sending much love. Chris & David
