A little about Jesse...
Jesse Michael Simon of Boulder, a sweet, precious young man, led an amazing life in his short 16 years. He chose to leave this world on Nov. 18th, 2010 to find peace and serenity.
Jesse's insights and understandings were well beyond his years. Sometimes it seemed that he could see right into a person's soul and feel their joy or pain. He was so special and surrounded by love from so many.
Jesse was happiest working on small engines and building inventions of his own design. He loved flying radio-controlled airplanes with his dad. He enjoyed playing video games with his friends. Jesse most recently lived on a ranch where he was learning to ride, care for and connect with horses. He was a talented musician, playing the drum set, writing poetry for lyrics, and playing the music he wrote with his bands.
Jesse is preceded in death by his Grandma Sybil Simon and his Grandpa Julie Bender who he knew he would meet in heaven. Jesse is survived by his parents Andi Jason and David Simon begin_of_the_skype_highlighting end_of_the_skype_highlighting, his Grandma Edith Jason and Grandpa Lou Simon, many aunts, uncles and cousins, his birthmother Fran Houston and his beloved dog Juni - all of whom love him deeply.
Jesse is now a kite soaring up to heaven.
