Tell Us About Them:

Jesse was a hard worker and a Pittsburgh steelers fan. He would give the shirt off his back for a friend in need. He loved his family and his daughter most of all. many friends of his from school have spoken out to me about how nice jesse was to everyone , not caring about the opinion of others .


Tell Us About Their Struggles With Addiction:

Jesse was born into the cycle of addiction ., lost his father and brother . He was a father figure to his younger brothers. When we met , he was honest about his struggle , but he had just complete teen challenge and was the best he had ever been. He would relapse on pills and then to heroin. then would quickly get help or just stop cold. He would always tell me " I got this. I'm done . I know what I need to do ". sadly , his love for his daughter wasn't enough to stop his demons .


What Made Them Smile?

one word . his daughter ,Bliss . she was his world . his whole heart was filled with love for her ..


What Do You Miss the Most About Them?

I miss the way jesse loved me unconditionally. He was forgiving and just an amazing man . I miss everything about him and he can't be replaced .


If You Had a Chance to Say One More Thing to Your Angel What Would It Be?

I would say" I'm sorry , you were right about so much and I was too caught up on your addiction to see where I was wrong . please forgive me "
