My Deepest condolences on the passing of your father Big Jess. I only met him or talked to him a few times. He would always call for my son Andrew to work on his vehicle or to help him with his yard. He could make me laugh each time I did talk to him. I had a Bubbly, Happy sense of humor. I can not recall a time your Father was ever sad. BIG JESS was a ONE OF A KIND MAN. I'M THANKFUL WE GOT TO MET N KNOW HIM. HE WILL BE TRULY MISSED BY ALL HE CAME IN CONTACT WITH. EVEN IF IT WAS FOR A SHORT TIME.
