He recently became an Eagles member. He loved longboarding with his parrot, Bilbo, on his shoulder, shooting pool, umpiring high school softball, was a little league baseball star, playing catch, flying drones and playing video games with his nephew. Walking his dog, Brownie, which he loved with his heart and soul, playing with his nieces, going for drives and being with his best friends, laughing with his family, anything outdoors and adventurous, hacky sac, the ocean and eating lots of food!

Jesse just loved being around people and making them smile. He made friends everywhere he would go. His smile, strength, perseverance, kind soul will never be forgotten amongst the thousands of lives Jesse touched.
