Jesse B. Albrecht had built a house in Alaska with his new wife, hoped to hit the links when he left Iraq and planned to become an Army recruiter. He had smart, well-laid-out plans, according to his mother, Denise Albrecht, and he''d sit around at night with his fellow soldiers chatting about golf and what courses they''d play when they returned home. Albrecht, 31, of Hager City, Wis., was killed May 17 by a roadside bomb in Iskandariya. He was a 1994 high school graduate and was assigned to Fort Richardson. He leaves behind his wife, Crystal, whom he married last July, and an 11-year-old daughter, Salena, from his first marriage. Albrecht was lanky and good-natured, and opponents on the wrestling mat in high school found it hard to pin him down. He also enjoyed snowboarding, fishing, snowmobiling and riding ATVs. Denise Albrecht said that his fellow soldiers told her he was one of the first to participate in platoon outings, including paint ball and ice hockey, and also enjoyed playing cards, even though "he couldn''t bluff a 3-year-old in a poker game."
