Jesse was a guy that i met many yrs ago at the Latch. He was a good bartender and was always there to listen or if you were feeling down he could always make you laugh. He would sing karaoke once in a while and it was always Mack the Knife. He was quite the character. He will be missed by many. My heart and prayers go out to his daughters Alyssa & Salina and the rest of the Farias family. R.I.P. Jesse, until we meet again.

May Jesse rest in peace. We wish the family comfort, peace and God's presence during this time. He always had a comeback reply to your conversation. He lived life for his daughters. God Bless.

My heart is broken today. Jesse was one-in-a-million to me, and that he shall remain. Everyone who knew him could attest to the pride and love he had for his family and "the "girls". My heart goes out to them now and forever. I loved me some Jesse.
