Dear Mr. and Mrs. Strong,

I'm keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers today as I remember Jesse's Home-Going anniversary and the day back in 2007 at Liberty University when the Lord knit us together...you all are ALWAYS in my heart and I cannot wait for the day when I get to meet my faithful brother, Jesse, face to face in the Presence of Our Father!! What a glorious day that will be!

All my love today and always,

~Cecilia Brennan ❤️❤️❤️

Dear Strong family,

Your son's name was mentioned with great reverence today at the church we attend here in Pittsburgh...our pastor is Dean Weaver who, as you know, is a relative of yours. It's the words from his sermon today that lead me to look at this page and learn more about your special son Jesse. I love everything you have shared here. I feel as if my husband and I got to know much more about this very special human being whom I know you miss every single day. As Americans who love this country with all of our hearts, we can't thank Jesse enough, and you his family, for his service. We are SO sorry for your loss but are grateful for his love of family, God and his country.
The other part that caught our attention is that you are in Vermont. My husband's family is originally from Craftsbury Common, so somehow our paths, therefore, don't seem so far apart. We can picture your beautiful state and appreciate Jesse's love of "home"
Well, I thank Dean for sharing your story with us today at church. Our hearts break for you. We (and we know you) are grateful that Jesse knew The Lord as he did, so there is no doubt that you will meet again. And when we get there, I would LOVE to meet him too.
Peace be with you,
Carol J. Young

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Strong,

Thank you for taking the time to read this post. My name is Aldous Mina, I am one of Jesse's dorm mates at LU (We were in dorm 9) for a few years together. He used to cut my hair whenever, I was short with money and he always took time to help me out even, if he had other plans for that day. I love Jesse, dearly, he was the best anyone could ask for in a friend. Thank you for sharing him with us and with this world.

I am currently in Eastern Europe, just a few miles away from Ukraine, and as I reflect on this Memorial Day, I remember Jesse, and his testimony throughout his life and eventual home going. Please feel free to reach out to me if, I can be of service.

With love and respect,

Dear Nathan and Vicki Strong, I first heard about Jesse from the article in guidepost. Since then I've kept the letter you sent me on my desk and every time I see it I lift you up to God. Thank you for so embodying the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ. You have been a living scripture for me all these years. My prayers continue for your family. Thank you again for your sacrifice.

Its been over 10yrs since I've seen you last. You went out of your way to send our squad off the flight line to camp kV in Aug of 04, I've never forgotten that. I miss talking weight lifting with you. But by far my fondest memory of you was in the theater in 29 palms watching the movie Dodgeball. I don't remember the scene off hand, but a joke was told and you were laughing into the next scene. Which in turn caused the rest of the theater to laugh at you. Priceless! Words cannot express the cost of your passing. Not a day goes by I dont think of yall. Many of shots, many of tears have been taken and shed in yalls memory. As Carrie Underwood wrote, I will see you again. Miss you Jesse, cheers to a somber anniversary. Semper fi. Sherman.
