He was a graduate in the class of 1956 where he attended J. R. E. Lee High School. Six years later he decided to relocate to Rochester, New York where he began his employment with Kodak, Inc. He was dedicated to his job for 25 years. Once he decided on retirement, there was no doubt in his mind that Florida would be where he would begin building his family home. Jesse was truly committed to his family.
Some of the joys of Jesse life were Auto Mechanic, being outdoors, and he was an all-around handy man.
Jesse would often visit a few churches in the community; he did have the knowledge of Jesus Christ. On August 18, 2020 @ 8:00 AM his daughter, Alesia Foster had the honor of leading her Dad to Jesus Christ and we know that Heaven Rejoiced.
