Jesse began his career doing various jobs until he found his passion as a Foreman working for the Rio Paisano Ranch in Riviera, Texas. After 15 years of working at the ranch, he decided to hang up his hat and boots. But that didn’t last long, Jesse then decided that retirement was not for him and he began working for B&J Air and Pump, Alice, Texas where he worked for another 18 years and finally retired at the age of 80. Needless to say, Jesse was loyal to his wife, family, and employers. He gave 110% on everything that was put in front of him.
