  • Notes 
    • When Jesse was 19 his mother died. His bishop had been pressuring him to serve a mission but he felt that he was too shy. He wanted to join the Navy but he was too small. He moved to Alaska, where two of his sisters lived, to work at a lumber mill so that he could build up muscle. After that summer he was strong enough to pass the physical and was able to join the Navy. He served in the Navy for 20 years (during WWII). At one point he served in the Solomon Islands. He also served on the USS Tarawa. He became an instructor in meteorology for the Navy. He was stationed at Lakehurst, NJ when the Hindenburg crashed. While stationed in New Jersey he met Elsie "Chickie" May Worth at a roller skating rink. They married on October 15, 1941. Their first son (Jesse Jr.) was born in 1942, while Jesse Sr. was stationed on the Solomon Islands. "Chickie" and Jesse Jr. lived with her parents at the time. Jesse Sr. did not meet his son until he was 15 months old. When he retired from the Navy he worked a civil service job. He worked at Ft. Monmouth, NJ. He worked there until he retired at age 55. At that time (1964) Chickie had passed away, Jesse Jr. was married, Bob was in the Navy, Ward was in the National Guard (but still lived at home). Without warning or advising Jesse Jr. or Bob, Jesse Sr. moved to Salmon, Idaho (on the same property as his sister, Blanche). When they would get snowed in Blanche taught him how to crochet afghans and hook rugs. He also played the fiddle and organ, but only in private. He enjoyed riding motorcycles. When Blanche died Jesse Sr. moved to Victorville, California (across the street from his brother, Darrell). Darrell's wife, Grace, was very crippled with arthritis. Darrell and Jesse Sr. enjoyed many outdoor activities together (camping, gold panning in Alaska, hiking, fishing, snowmobiling, cross-country skiing, etc.) When Darrell unexpectedly died of a brain aneurysm Jesse Sr. built a cabin in Linden, Arizona, near a cabin belonging to Jesse Jr. and his family. (Side note: both sisters who lived in Alaska died of cancer at a young age, in fact, all three of his sisters died of cancer.)
