We grew up together since we were toddlers, you, me, Steven, and Iggy. Our moms were best friends, always sharing lots of laughter. You grew to be best friends with Steven and thankfully, you were in our lives into adulthood. I left for California and then only heard from my brother how you were, always happy for you that you had made a beautiful life for yourself, with a wife and children and a fulfilling career. I will always remember the day I got the call about what happened. Disbelief came over me. You were like family to us, Jesse. Steven and I always exchange messages when it’s your birthday or on this day, March 25. I hope you and Iggy are our angels now. God bless your family. I hope they know that you are thought of and remembered by many.
