I cannot even begin to express my sadness upon hearing of Jesse's passing. Knowing him from hockey, he always had a smile and a laugh and never failed to say hello. Jesse, along with you all, are in my heart, my thoughts and prayers, especially during this heartbreaking time.

Sue, Don and family, we are so sorry hearing the devastating news of the loss of your son, Jessie. Losing a child is something that we as parents never want to experience. That beautiful face was the first thing I saw Saturday morning (Facebook) and shared with George. It is so difficult to think about the pain from the loss of a child..it just should not happen, but it unfortunately does.All of you are in our prayers...think of all your happy times with Jessie because we are sure there are so many. Love to all of you, George and Carole

Mr and Mrs Reis, Even though it was long ago, we spent so much time together. I have so many memories that I will never forget. Jesse will be missed. Prayers and love.

I am so incredibly sorry for your loss. I worked alongside Jesse as a waitress at Jamison’s. I always appreciated Jesse for his fantastic sense of humor, his down to earth personality and his willingness to go out of his way for anyone just to put a smile on their face. I could tell he adored his nieces and have always admired him and looked up to him for his raw passion behind his talents-cooking and music. He will truly be missed by myself and anyone who had the pleasure of crossing paths with him.
