Jess could make you laugh first thing in the morning. Even today all I have to say is, And The Gulls Fly Low Over The Dorchester Dump and Jess is right here. People like Jess touch your truth and never leave you.

Thank you Jess . . .

From 1985 to 1987, I was a part-time utility announcer at WHDH radio. whenever I happened to cross paths with Jess, he always called me by name and asked how I was doing, even though he didn't know me from before I worked there. That really meant a lot. Jess was a class guy and an incredible talent, and was warm and friendly to everyone whether or not they had notoriety. A fine man like this is unfortunately a vanishing breed.

I found this recently. My dad was a real hero

CAIN, JESSE D.
Citation:
The President of the United States takes pleasure in presenting the Silver Star Medal to Jesse D. Cain (33813241), Private First Class [then Private], U.S. Army, for conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity in action while serving with Company A, 275th Infantry Regiment, 70th Infantry Division. On 16 March 1945, at 1500 Hours, near Saarbrucken, Germany, Private Cain was the only one of a group of fifteen men sent to obtain information and determine enemy strength in the Siegfried Line, who was not a casualty in the machine-gun trap sprung on them. Crawling, creeping, and finally running, while enemy machine-gun and burp guns blazed away at him, Private Cain made his way back to his Battalion Command Post to report the situation. He then directed the laying of a smoke screen by the mortars, and then led a second group to the scene. Seven painfully wounded men were evacuated while streams of enemy fire probed the smoke-covered field in an attempt to hamper the movement and escape. Private Cain's actions, without regard for his own safety, reflect great credit on himself and the Armed Forces of the United States.
