In 2005, Jesse went to work for Grays Harbor County's Road Maintenance Division, where he had a blast working on the road crew with several close friends including, Kevin, Ryan, Matt and Paul (to name a few).
Jesse was an avid motorcycle rider and was happiest when the wind blew across his face. He loved discovering and riding backroads near and far with his best friend, Josh Bednarik. Jesse loved the outdoors, hunting, fishing, golfing, and spending time with family, friends, and his beloved dogs, Macie and Emma.
Jesse is survived by his wife; his brother, Ryan; his parents; and many cousins, aunts, uncles, and friends.
