At this time, we open the space for guests here today to share a memory. This can be a story or memory that makes you smile or is special to you.If we were all together today this would be like raising your hand and passing the microphone around the room. There are two ways to raise your hand. To use the Zoom feature, click on participants and the raise hand icon will appear on the bottom left of the participants panel. Or, if your video is on, we invite you to do this the old fashioned way and wave your hand in the video. Our staff will call on you by name and ask you to unmute your microphone.You can also share here, in the chat. The chat will be shared with the family as a virtual guestbook.

One time, when Jesse went to play laser tag with my church youth group, he came up with the great idea of forming an amoeba. People in the front of the formation carried the laser tag guns of the people in the back, allowing them to continue to fire even when their vests had been hit. :) Jesse seemed like a fun-loving, creative, and compassionate man.

I never had the pleasure of meeting Jesse but I have the immense honor of knowing Joel and Katie. I am a better wife, clinician and person having them as friends and mentors. It is clear from the beautiful memories shared today that Jesse, much like his brother, was intricately fair minded, a loyal and lighthearted friend, loved fiercely, was a and his passion guided his impact on the world. Thank you so much for inviting me to know him today.

It was Jesse's insatiable thirst for knowledge that inspired us to know his deep soul. He was truly interested in knowing the Measell side of the family. There was a sly joke that ended our conversations with a smile. Jesse was a powerful soul that touched us all.
