Uncle Jess was a great man and he will be sorely missed. I've always looked up to him, and even though I know he is with the Lord, I am still devastated. Until we see him again in Heaven, I'm standing on Jesus's promise that he will wipe every tear from our eyes. There will be no more death or mourning. Uncle Jess played a huge part in helping me to see the truth in this. I'm so very sorry that we cannot be there.

Jess you will be missed! Such a kind heart, you made everyone feel like family. Praying for the entire family today. May God give us all comfort and fill us all with the great memories we each had with you. Jess you touched so many people. I witnessed this in Sturgis in 2019 when that young couple next to your site, a complete stranger, had all those issues with their bike and RV, even in poor health you did everything you could to improve their situation. The way you talked and treated them you would think you knew them for years. Love you Jess, until we meet again.

We are Sturgis friends of Jesse and we are so saddened by this loss. We had many spirited, fun, breakfast conversations over the years at the Newell Hotel. We were able to keep in touch on FB and will miss him very much. Prayers to Edna and family.
