Condolence: Our deepest sympathies to Andy, the "Kids" and family from the Beauregard family from Spring St. Our parents were great friends of Jesse + Andy and we all enjoyed many happy cookouts at their summer place in Wells. We Beauregard kids are thankful that Jesse introduced us to Greek food!
May the family take solace in the happy memories.
Condolence: The first things that come to mind when I think of Jesse are his kindness and his smile. He truly cared for the people in his life and he expressed it by always being there for them. He seemed to live life to the fullest and to do so with joy. Excellent examples for the rest of us. I will always remember him with a smile. I am so sorry for your loss.
Condolence: To the family of Mr. Evangelou,
I was a student at KJHS in the early 70s. I was not fortunate enough to be his student. However I was in ”Stoppy’s” gym class (and loved it and her!). I recently drove down Spring Street, saw your house and wondered if you still lived there.
Some people make a big impression, without even knowing it. The Evangelous are in that group.
My sincere condolences. May the love you shared and many beautiful memories, and the love and care of family and friends help you through this very difficult time. RIP Mr. E.
Condolence: Andy, Maria, George and James,
I am so sorry to hear of Jesse's passing. Jesse was a wonderful guy and a good friend. To say he was top notch wouldn't even come close. I was honored to have known Jesse for all the years we worked together (and played together) and if I tried as hard as possible I can't think of one time we didn't end up laughing. I hope your memories will help you at this time. Jesse was a big guy with a HUGE heart and he touched so many. God Bless you all and know you are in my prayers. Raynor R. Smith Sr Wake Forest, NC
Condolence: I had him for a teacher and I can testify he was a great teacher and the class loved him. As I go by the old KJHS building I have often recalled being in his class as it was near the front of the building. Sorry to learn of his passing.
Condolence: I was a student at KJHS in1961. In 1969 I was a student teacher at KJHS. From 1971-73 I taught Social Studies at KJHS. Jesse had a big impact on me. He was such a personable and honorable man. Thank you for sharing the photos of Jesse and his family. My sincere condolences on the passing of this great man. May the memories of Jesse fill you up during this time fo loss. RIP Jesse and make them all laugh with your great personality.
Condolence: You folks don't know me - in 1956, Jesse was watching a bunch of wild sophomores playing touch football behind the school He came up to me and said; Skook, why don't you go out for football. How do I do that? he said: just get on the bus. I didn't, but the next year I got on the bus and had two great years at QB for the 'Birds'. He was one of my favorite people in my school years. Much loved and respected.
It sounds like he had a good life. Much deserved.
Regards - Gordon (Skook) McCollester
Condolence: I have been Jesses neighbor at the beach for the past 5 years. He became my friend instantly. I loved him and will miss him and think about whenever I’m there. RIP Jesse. Till we meet again. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
