After graduating from Oklahoma State University, the affectionately named Junior began his career working as an engineer for Conoco-Phillips, Shell, and Koch Industries, among other companies. In his free time, Jess, Jr. spent as much time as possible with family, traveling, and settling down with a good beer or two. In his later life, he spent much of his time guiding others and reflecting on life, writing a book on his journey through illness, and always teaching others about the power of faith and positivity. He will be sorely missed. Memorial Service will be at 10:30 am, Friday, June 15, at Good Shepherd Episcopal Church. Downing & Lahey East Mortuary. Share tributes online at:
