Jesse was a smart, friendly, and outgoing man. He graduated from Dunbar High School in Bessemer, Alabama and he completed a B.S. in Chemistry in 1962 at Morehouse College in Atlanta, Georgia. He worked for more than 30 years as a chemist and researcher for the USDA Forest Products Laboratory in Madison, Wisconsin.

Post-retirement he worked as a home healthcare worker for Community Home Health from 2002 to 2007. Post-retirement he also kept busy with various part-time employment opportunities.

Throughout his life he pursued many interests. He was an avid reader and enjoyed scientific journals and reading the Bible. Sports was another passion of his and in his younger years he was on the Dunbar High School football team, played tennis, and was on the Forest Products Laboratory softball team. He mentored young people and touched many lives.

Jesse is survived by two daughters, Andora and Aileen, from his previous marriage to Oles Green. He is preceded in death by his sister June, brother Joe and sister Leola. The memories of his life will be cherished by his siblings Alfred, William, Thomas, Oliver and Olevia. Jesse will also be fondly remembered by many nieces, nephews and family friends.
