Jesse was a great neighbor. He was kind to my kids and always took the time to visit with us. He was a good man and we will miss him.

We have only had the pleasure of knowing Jesse for the last three years. He was our neighbor behind us in Derby. We absolutely loved him and will miss him dearly. My granddaughter, Harper, or to Jesse, Haper Valley PTA, said I miss Mr. Jesse. Our deepest condolences to his family. Kelli, I hope you will keep in touch. Love you.
Robert and Joann Koch.
