To the family of Mr. Jesse.
Mr. Jessee and I went to dialysis together. He was a nice man and everyone around him liked him.
May he rest in heaven.

I was heart broken when I heard the news. So many memories. You would pick us up for church, tutoring, dance practice etc and take us wherever we wanted to go. I would always be happy when I was the last one to be dropped off because I knew you would share your wisdom! You use to tell me to be careful when I chose a boyfriend!! And then laugh ! Iโ€™ll miss you but I know youโ€™re in peace!!! Love you!!! Rest on โค๏ธ

Although he is gone in the flesh, he will never be forgotten in my heart and my kids hearts...He was a great help and influence to the youth of Allen Chapel and my sis, Kim Vaughn. He helped for many years with transporting the Allen Chapel Youth to all of their church conventions! He also helped coach the youth to victory for many years with the Bible Bowl competitions! Every time I would see him, he had a smile on his face and some sort of a joke would come out! Even on days he surely felt bad, he never would let you know it! He was a wonderful person who had an amazing spirit, who had a great sense of humor, and had a giving heart! He and I would argue back and forth, playfully, about our... favorite football teams because he liked to have fun! Out of all the things I know about him... I know one thing for sure and without a doubt...he loved God and everyone knew it! He wasn't ashamed to say it either! Rest peacefully and put on your crown! It is well deserved!๐Ÿ™๐ŸผโคRead more

Jesse was a man like no other. He was a true friend to many, especially me. But I'm sure he had a way of making all his friends feel special. I will truly miss him I will find comfort knowing that he is in the presence of the Lord. Rest well my friend. Prayers to the girls and other family.

What great man who had such an impact on my life and other young men in Anderson as a coach in Babe Ruth baseball and a mentor throughout my life.
Rest well my friend.
My prayers are with the family during this time of bereavement.

Mr Jessie Will truly be missed
He meant alot to me he was always so funny loving and caring
I have countless memories of when He drove the church van and helped coach Bible bowl he always gave the youth a laugh
He would always imitate the praise dance in his own way and asked about getting up there and praise dancing now I Know he is praise dancing singing shouting and having a good laugh in heaven
Mr Jessie will be missed and although he jokingly called me Aunt De he will forever be cherished as like a uncle to me
And appreciatied for all he did for my mom and I the 10 years we lived there and for what he meant to me especially in those cruetial years of my childhood
Prayers to his fa
...mily and my Anderson folks especially the Allen Chapel AME Church family
