Jesse was a close frind of mine going back to early teens.  We met when I moved to Mulford Gardens.  There were a few of us that hung arround together everyday back then.  Later after Jesse came home from Vietnam, our small circle of friends still hung out togher a lot.  He was a good guy and a close friend.  I eventually lost contact with him, but I did vist with him a couple of time after he lived in San Lorenzo.  The last time I did see him, he had had a stoke that was somewhat disabiling.  Jesse's Brother Fredy, told me that he died of related problems from the stroke.  I did go to his funeral, and thank goodness it was a closed casket, because I didn't know how I was going to deal with seeing him in one.   I will always remember my old friend Jesse and all of the good time we had together.  

Here is his obituary:
