Rest in peace Jesse. My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time. The whole Delaware Camaro Community sends condolences. COTW for the rest of the month!

Mike had heart surgery about 3 weeks ago, then had a heart attack soon after. He passed away at 5:31 am Sunday morning in the hospital.
Wow that is seriously messed up. To lose one of our brethren is a tragedy in itself, but to hear about how everyone liked him so much just makes it that much more sad. I'm not all that active here, so I didn't really know the man, but I was sad to see the RIP COTW on the front page and came to see what was meant by that. :(

RIP brother. I know you will be missed. Congratulations on the posthumous honor!

I knew Jesse through our club, he was a true car guy through and through.......

We met him at a car show last year, he had just purchased a brand new fully loaded Orange SRT-8 Challenger about two months prior.
He joined the club that very same day, showed up a few times with the Challenger and the next time we saw him he had an Inferno Orange Camaro 2SS/RS.

He lost his ass on that deal but he loved the Camaro and the Club so much it did not matter to him.
Jesse was an ambassador of the the club and the brand, every Camaro he saw he would try and recruit members.
There are quite a few members in SJCC club now due to Jesse’s recruitment.
He was always on the forums and attended every show and meeting he could.
Even at Nationals this year he did not feel well but he came anyway.

Jesse was always a PITA in a good way, he would fuss with me knowing he could push my buttons.
The guy would call me at ten o’clock at night to ask me some ridiculous question....LOL
I would dread the phone ringing at 10 pm knowing it was Jesse...I would always pick it up and we would talk shop.
He was retired and didnt’t have anything better to do I guess...LOL.
I’m glad I got the opportunity to know him and he will be missed by all!

He was a enthusiast of the hobby and he lived and truly understood the meaning of Camaro!!!!!!!!!

This car and community continue to amaze me, I never know what will happen next.
I am sure when they designed the car back in 1966 they could have never imagined the impact it would have on so many lives.

Even I become complacent and take it for granted, we started a simple Camaro club right?....WRONG, it has become so much more than that.
The machine is living and breathing, and has taken on a life of it’s own. The members/enthusiasts are like family and we all make up the machine.
We just lost a very important component that can not be replaced.

I don’t have to tell you it’s like getting kicked in the guts when we lose someone.
One day you see them upright and then the next thing you know they are gone.

Jesse will not be forgotten....He was a Husband, Father, Grandfather, and Brother!

GODSPEED Brother, may you rest in piece!

SOPMOD/El Presidente...OUT!

Tho I never met Jessie, the fact that he had so many kind posts and heart felt wishes for his family, is a true testament to the people and fellow Camaro enthusiates on this site. RIP Jessie and Prayers for your family.
