Jesse was a son,brother,husband father and a soldier and a 1 in a million person. He was from WV so he was a mountaineers fan and after Dale Earnhardt's passing Jeff Gordon was his race car driver that he supported faithfully every Sunday He cheered for the Denver Broncos Atlanta Braves and loved sports in general and excelled in baseball in his high school years He knew how to and loved to have fun and was still a kid at heart and it showed in his love for his children he left for us to cherish a son almost 2 years old and a daughter that will be 1 in January a step son 11 years old that he was a hero to before all this happened Anyone who met Jesse had a friend and he was loved by many and so many lives will never be the same Jesse gave the ultimate sacrifice for his family and his country and will never be forgotten and will always be missed He had a smile that could brighten any ones day This is just a little insight to who Jesse was and I know I don't do him justice but what can you say about one heck-of a-guy
