Jesse wrote this… “I am both original and authentic. C***iness can run its mouth all day long about what it CAN do. Confidence tells you what it’s about to do, and then does it. I grew up on a dairy farm near dibble with two awesome sisters! I was the middle child. My dad showed me how to weld at the ripe old age of 5. By age 6 I convinced him to let me drive a tractor. I managed to not tear up too much stuff on the farm, but dad never gave up on me. I wanted to be like him, and he seen the potential for lots of child slave labor! I’m so glad that I had those experiences! I still love welding, and driving my tractor. I love to build things, but I can’t hardly move a muscle until I can envision it from start to end. I’m a thinker for sure. I like to talk philosophy about life, and ponder on it. I’m not to thrilled with the way the world is and where it seems to be going. I’ve been abused plenty for giving the benefit of the doubt, and trying to change things, but that’s the chance you take when you put yourself out there. What separates me from the rest is, I’m not afraid to try again. Most of the time I get to put a smile on someone’s face, one of my favorite things to do!!! I refuse to let the world change me, I’ll be the one doing the changing! I love to laugh and make people laugh. My sense of humor is a bit of smart*** with a touch of sarcasm. I have a mountain of confidence in myself, and my abilities. If I say I can, I do. If I can’t, I ask how. Not afraid to be wrong, it happens when you try. I despise the love of money, arrogance, bragging, thieves and liar’s. I have no use for any of them…My time is the most valuable thing I possess, please don’t waste it. I’ll gladly share it with anyone that appreciates it.” -Jesse D. Estes In lieu of flowers, Jesse’s children meant the world to him, it would be Jesse’s wish to help his children. Donations would be greatly appreciated and can be received in the love offerings box at Jesse’s memorial service.
