Jessie’s great love for life and for others was immeasurable. Whether cooking for his family, singing along to Disney films, playing with his nephew Efrain, or dancing like no one was watching-his presence was always known. In his later years, Jessie proudly channeled his desire for helping others into a home solutions business serving the NWI and Chicagoland area. He loved caring for the homes of his client family. He was a loving son, brother, uncle, and generous friend.
He was bold, bright, and truly one of a kind. His irreplaceable light will continue to shine on in our hearts forever more. We love you Jessie! XOXO
