In keeping with Jesse's spirit of generous giving, it was without hesitance that his parents decided upon organ donation.

We want to encourage all of Jesse's friends and their families to discuss their wishes in the unfortunate event that tragedy strikes.

Jesse's gift greatly improved life to four individuals. Two other recipients were given the gift of sight. Through the Kentucky Organ Donor Affiliates "Aftercare Program" we were able to correspond during the first year after donation with several of Jesse's organ recipients. Among the wonderful things we learned about the recipients and their families, most heartfelt to us was knowing that one individual is studying computer programming and another will now be able to have children because of Jesse's gift of life.
