I'm grateful to have known Jesse who was passionate and excellent at what he did. We conducted several Blood Drives at Living Water Christian Center through the years and Jesse always came with a smile, willing to do whatever we needed him to do. He was always respectful to our staff and made everyone feel important. We will miss him. Our deepest condolences and prayers to his family. Pastors Jose and Nellie Portillo
