For those of you who never met Jesse

Jesse did a lot of advocacy in his 13 years. Please enjoy these short commercials he filmed with his good friend, Aaron Liebe (also diagnosed at age 3) over the years to support a fundraiser called "thunder run". If you can get through the commercials, please enjoy the beginning of the outtakes. I smile EVERY time because listening to him talk about bugs, and his shirt that is too big, and Aaron screwing up his lines...THAT was Jesse.

I am so sorry! I met you and Jesse when he was 5 through JDRF, my son was newly diagnosed then. You and Jesse were such an inspiration to us, I was so glad to have a team like you guys fighting the same fight as we are. Thank you so much for sharing Jesse with us. We are thinking and praying for you and your family. My heart goes out to you.

I've only just discovered this sad news of you losing your child. He reminds me so much of my nephew and my heart breaks for you. My 10 year old girl, Emma, is type 1 (dx @ 5) and I can't imagine what you are going through. I am praying that you find strength in pushing through each day.
