He attended Minnewaska Area Day Treatment and then transferred to the Runestone Area Education. From the moment Jesse was born he was on the go! He was always active whether it be playing basketball with his brother or skateboarding around town. He was adventurous, always chasing after animals and pranking his parents. Jesse used his big heart to always try to make people laugh and did whatever he could to bring a smile to their face. He was a lover of all music types, not ever being shy about singing along or jamming to his favorite tune. Challenging his dad and brother at video games, added more “man time” spent with family. The whole family would get involved when the board games came out, adding times of laugher and teasing amongst them. He loved to spend time with and smother with love his younger brother Jacob and new baby sister Aria. Jesse and his amazing smile will be missed by his family and friends.
