    It was a while back that I ran into Jesse at the Assisted Living center she was living in that I had the opportunity to chat with her for a while. We spoke of the old times at United Telephone and laughed about many of out experiences there. I feel that I was blessed in knowing and working with Jesse. She was an onery but sweet lady and will be missed.
