Jesse (Jack) was raised in up-state New York next to Cayuga Lake on a dairy farm. At age 23 he left home and joined the Air Force and served from 1952 to 1956. He had a love for all outdoors: hunting, fishing, camping, bird-watching and horses. He had such an inventive mind and loved to tinker and build with his hands. He had such a kind heart and was so patient with all he came to know.
