My prayers are with the Hill and related family as wall as those like me who took Jesse Hill as a father figure. Small in stature but a giant in life. May his soul Rest In Peace.

Mr. Hill was very insightful and a genius in his own right. While during the infrastructure development phase at the Cascades we often talked about economic development issues in the black community. One of the first African Americans to earn a degree in Actuary Science. RIP my brother.

Mr. Hill was one of the wisest and introspective men that I have ever met. He has done so much for city of Atlanta as well as our community. He will always be thought of as a beacon and he has truly left a legacy.
