He’d walk up and down the cobblestone roads of Violeta street and shout, “get your paper read all about it!”. Too easy he thought. Jesse completed middle school and was compelled to start working to help alleviate his families financial hardship. Little Jose would accompany his mother to the neighboring towns to help her sell the shoes his father had made. He was a very well rounded man.

Jesse changed his line of work returning to sales with a Cement fabricator, which didn’t last long. He longed to embark on an adventure North to the US. Jesse asked his mother for her blessing and off he went to Escondido California where his only older sister Evelia Catalina greeted him with open arms. He loved Western films and looked up to John Wayne and his cowboy ways. After traveling quite a bit from Nevada to Texas he ended up in Minneapolis, Minnesota for work. Here he met the true love of his life, Maria De La Luz Suarez Torresday. Romantic love letters were exchanged and wedding bells rang. The lovely couple moved to Connecticut where they started a family.
