Jesse was born in Yreka, California. Known to his friends as “Bo.” Bo attended Yreka High School. On May 23, 1975, he was hired by Yreka Police Department as a full-time patrolman. His interest in athletics and stock car racing kept him in close contact with young people. Bo had a genuine soft spot in his heart for kids.
Bo gave his life to protect life and property. We the living, dedicate ourselves to his memory and the supreme sacrifice he made.
