Jesse spent his life finding new adventures, climbing mountains, driving cross country to explore the wilderness, the wildlife, the strangers he'd meet along the way that quickly morphed into dear friends. And the best part was he took us all along. He captured his adventures in immense detail sharing them with us in letters, emails and stories. I remember the excitement I'd feel seeing a new letter arrive and finding myself hiking the Alps along with him. He was so gifted in his story telling and the amazing part of it all was that the stories he was telling and writing weren't stories at all, they were narratives of a life lived to the fullest, they were narratives of his life.
So while he's no longer here with us in this life, I'm certain he's finding new adventures and I know we all take comfort in knowing that when we set off on our own explorations and adventures on this Earth, it will be because Jesse is taking us along with him.
