I was honored to have known Jesse. A good man. I was able to be part of the Country Gospel Band and it was so nice to be able to minister to people with the group. We were really blessed to be able to go and sing for the residents of the various places as well as sing in some churches. Jesse could play a guitar. Thanks Jesse for the memories that Ginny and I have. Heaven is assembling quite the choir and musicians and we look forward to the day when we will all be reunited. May GOD bless Sarah and your family is our prayer. Pastor Richard & Ginny Nash.

Rest in peace my dear, sweet Uncle. It is hard to put into words how much this wonderful man meant to me. He lived his life unselfishly for his Lord, his family and his country. My heart is broken but it is full of precious memories. Give my mother, my father, my brother, my son and Daryl a hug for me. I love you and will miss you. Your niece, Darlene

Uncle Jesse is now with the Father and Son in heaven. He was truly a man of God, loving father and a patriot. I will never forget the time I went through Infantry training at Ft. Benning in 1978. I knew Uncle Jess was stationed there but didn’t know where. Within the first hour I got called to the First Sergeants office. I thought what did I already do. When I reported to my First Sergeant he asked me if I knew the person behind me, I turned around and there was Uncle Jess. I said “ hi Uncle Jess”; man was that was the wrong thing to say. He made it known he was First Sergeant Arroyo and he chewed me out good. Come to find out he was the First Sergeant in the Company right next to mine. Throughout training he would occasionally come over and dog me out. Most mornings he would yell over for me to “ drop and give him 25.” I would do my 25 push ups and then yell at the top of my lungs for permission to recovery. He would leave me there in the front leaning rest(the push up position) for about 30 seconds before he would give me permission to recover. In the evening he went come and get me laundry and take it home for Aunt Lucille to wash. He would give my laundry back to me the following morning and dog me out. It was hilarious and so much fun. I was so glad I didn’t have to do laundry. One of my greatest regrets will always be not visiting with him the last time I was there. I wanted to see him but unfortunately the timing did not work out. I knew I would most likely never see him again. I will miss him. For all that are mourning, know that Uncle Jess is not dead. His earthly body has no life in it, but he is alive and well in Heaven in the presence of God and Jesus. He has no more sickness, no more pain, no tears. He is full of Joy as there is no sorrow in Heaven. Mourn for just a short time and then rejoice in the fact that he is in the perfect place with the perfect Father. “Follow Me, I am the Infantry.”

Jesse was like a member of our family. We have known him for many years and loved him dearly. Jesse helped Homer build his dad's house many years ago. He and Homer went hunting together and got together to play guitars for different occasions. Jesse played his guitar for me to sing at church. He was a very special friend and we are going to miss him. We are praying for God to comfort his family during this difficult time.
