I worked on Otay Mountain in San Diego Sector, California many a shift with Jesse. He was a highly motivated agent and got out on foot a lot which was the source for much banter since he was an Air Force veteran and I was an Army veteran. He could always be counted upon to be in the thick of any action in the station's area of responsibility. The news of his death was very sad and we felt so bad for his children who would grow up not knowing so much of the exciting things their dad did for America. Rest In Peace Jesse.
