I was digging through some belongings today and found the very last letter I received from you Jesse. Only a few months before your much anticipated return home. I hope you found your peace brother! I wish I had more friends like you <3

I am a former Liberty Student who happened to attend Liberty when Jesse was ambushed. I am currently a youth pastor and have been for several years. Today as I was studying for a lesson on prayer, I ran across a note that I had made to myself years ago in Francis Chan's "Crazy Love." Chan writes "We've elevated safety to the neglect of whatever God's best is." In the margin, I referenced Jesse as being a man who was more concerned about Christ's glory than his safety. May the Church follow Jesse's example to love Christ through all of life's trials. May we not choose safety over Jesus. Thank you Jesse for your great example of loving Christ more than life itself.

I didn't get to write yesterday but had Jesse on my mind. Thankful for his testimony and love for the Lord. Always had a smile in dorm 9. Thank for his life and the sacrifice he made. Praying for his family.

I never met you, but heard all about you at Liberty. We share the same birthday. You are exactly 4 years older than I. Thank you for your service. I know you are in heaven now.

Thinking of Jesse during this Memorial Day. This was the first year that our young kids started asking questions of what Memorial Day stood for. It gave us an opportunity to share about Jesse and the sacrifice that he made for our freedom and the freedom of others. Zac's response to our sharing was that one day he wants to be a soldier too...one that teaches other soldiers about Jesus...
