Dear Jane, Sue, Bert and families: There are no words that can express our sadness regarding this news about Jesse. It was just a year ago that he and I traded emails regarding the awful news about Jason and I thought from the tone of his email that he was doing about as well as could be expected under those tragic circumstances. But I have now learned that was not the case. Your family has faced unspeakable tragedy, really more than any one family should bear. His was a life well-lived and I hope you can find some comfort in that. And Jane, I like spreadsheets too ! Must have been that CMU Business School training.

Dear Jane, Jaime, Susan, Bert
and Family it is with great sadness and tears I learned of Jesse’s death. What can I say, Jesse was like a brother to me, a kindred spirit. Heart of gold and loving and caring. I pray that he was greeted with great joy and love upon passing to the other side, albeit torn between the love in this world and the world beyond. In our conversation together on New Year’s Day he spoke so joyfully about his grandson Jacob and was so looking forward to the arrival of a new grandchild. May his presence and spirit be instilled upon the birth of this child and may Jesse’s memory be a blessing. With love and caring. Michel
