If you recall our original posts about the young man who died after jumping off the West Seattle Bridge, you might want to know that his mother has posted a comment — since it’s deep within the site by now, we are reposting it here. (Note that the memo forwarded to us for one of those original posts mentioned a memorial for Jesse this Saturday.)
I am Jesse’s mother. Jesse was a brother, cousin, uncle,nephew, grandson and a son. He was all of these and much more…
We loved Jesse for who he was.There are many people in his life that have been devastated by his death. Many more than anyone can count. Jesse lost his life to demons that have been with him for a very long time.
I knew Jesse before these demons. A gentle, laughing child with a smile that would light up a room. He was the child that always wanted to ride the biggest ride and race the biggest track. He threw his arms around anyone that he thought needed assurance and kissed those that needed that touch. That was my Jesse.
For all the parents in the world that have sat up nights, cried themselves to sleep and wondered “What more I could have done?” you are not alone. I put out my arms to you and want you to know that there are many of us.
For all of his friends…I give you my hope and love for being part of Jesse’s life then and now.
Thank you, Jean Williams
