Jesse left us today, two weeks shy of his 94th birthday.
A true virtuoso player, and a very nice fellow.

So long, Jesse,, you did extremely well. You’ll be crosspicking that mandolin with Jim and the gang now.

I remember meeting Jesse backstage once, and observing his hands were no bigger than mine, which are small. I asked him about playing mandolin, which can be a finger buster. ‘It’s not how bid they are, it’s how fast you move ‘em,” he said. Jesse’s hands moved really fast.

So talented physically and mentally, he was an inspiration to me as soon as I heard his style!

He touched a lot of people with his music, he lived a long meaningful life and died with his wife at his side. I don't know, but it sounds like he lived a blessed life.

Condolence to his family and friends.
