I remember Jesse well having played against him in my youth for Herkimer, whether it was football or basketball. Never interacted again after our last contest 32 years ago but what I do remember is that he was a tough and determined competitor. Someone you had to game plan for, be aware of and know that he was a difference maker. What I also remember from my younger days is that he was a good guy off the playing field and very well respected. Certainly seems like that was his lasting gift to many people here in that he will always be remembered as kind and considerate and a difference maker in peoples lives. My condolences.
