“My son was a very loving person,” Jesse’s mother, Mary Lopez, told RCNS this afternoon; saying Jesse grew up in Perris.

“He always made sure his brothers, sisters and cousins were taken care of,” Mary explained. “He would always give them positive words and encouragement, such as ‘stay in school, don’t drop out, and keep moving forward’.”

“Saying Jesse did not like violence and was a peaceful person, Mary said, “Jesse will be missed by all his family and he will never be forgotten. He is with our Lord and savior and he is at peace.”

Jesse’s family has created a GoFundMe account to help raise necessary funds for his funeral arrangements and other costs.
