Jesse was a proud graduate of Del Mar College Tech. School. His education paved the way for a successful career in the energy industry, where he worked for Mobil Oil, Duke Energy, and DCP Midstream as a Corrosion Tech. His colleagues admired his dedication, work ethic, and the knowledge he brought to his field.
Outside of work, Jesse had a passion for the outdoors. He was an avid hunter and rancher, finding peace and joy in nature.

Jesse was a man of many virtues, but his loving nature, kindness, and handiness were the qualities that stood out the most. He was always ready to lend a helping hand, whether it was fixing a broken appliance or offering a word of comfort. His kindness was immense, touching the lives of everyone he met. He was a handyman, not just in the literal sense, but also in the way he handled life's challenges with grace and resilience.
Jesse's life was a testament to the power of love, kindness, and hard work. His legacy will live on in the hearts of his family, friends, and everyone who had the privilege of knowing him. He will be deeply missed, but his spirit will continue to inspire and guide those he left behind.
In the words of his family, "Jesse was a man who lived his life with love, kindness, and a sense of duty. He was our rock, our guiding light, and our source of endless love and support. We will miss him dearly, but we take comfort in knowing that his spirit will always be with us, guiding us, and reminding us to live our lives with the same love, kindness, and resilience that he showed us every day.”
