I only have a few cousins, but I have lost a really good one in Jess. He was always helpful to me, encouraging me to apply for Sons of American Revolution status. When we were kids they(John and Jessie) had 2 marionettes, you know with the strings, that I thought were the coolest things.

I met Jess while doing some service for his alarm system. We instantly hit it off when I saw his trains and his passion for the Civil War. He was a first class individual and will be greatly missed!
