  1. Hello, this is Brian Dover, (Deborah Sue and Eric’s son). I wanted to share one of my best memories of my great Uncle Jesse. It was the Christmas of 1974 I believe and we were all celebrating Christmas at our new house in Grand Prairie, Tx. I remember the front door bell rang and next thing I know Santa Claus comes through the front door with his bag full of presents for all of us kids. We were just amazed that Santa had made a special stop before everybody else to deliver our presents. I remember seeing the sparkle in Santa’s eyes and the joy and happiness in his voice and I remember he hugged us all and we felt so special. At that age and time Santa Clause was hands down the biggest celebrity I could think of. I remember I couldn’t wait to go back to school because I’d get to tell all the other kids that Santa delivered our presents first and we were at the top of his good kid list. It wasn’t until later on of course, I was told it was Uncle Jesse who’d actually been dressed up as Santa bringing our presents. Then I remembered that sparkle in his eyes and that feeling of being important to him… almost like we were Santa’s own kids. That’s because it was the love that Uncle Jesse had for us as his family shined through that Santa suit and he was in his element doing kind things for others and making his family feel special and loved. That for me was how Uncle Jesse was as a person, he loved his family and he always made you feel that you were important. We will miss his smiling face and happy greetings whenever he saw you. We love you Uncle Jesse and we are blessed you were a part of our lives and family.
