The line in between is all the years that he ran around chasing girls, drinking wild turkey, and collecting guns for shooting. He loved camping, hunting, and riding any type of motor bike through the hills.

Jesse has left behind a big family that include his kids, step kids, grandkids, great grandkids, brothers, sisters, nieces, and nephews. Not to mention the friends that were like family. Jesse made friends wherever he went and was always laughing. He will be missed my so many. We love you Pops!!

    To my uncle Jesse ( Smokey Robinson) is what I always called you. I will truly miss you. But you left so much amazing memories with me. All the family outings and BBQ's camping and many more. And always taught me to stand up for myself and speak my mind and never let know walk over me. And taught what it was to be a Maldonado. I will not say good bye but see you later until we meet again. I love ❤️ you with all my heart ❤️ 💋 love you 💋 always your niece Victoria MALDONADO Wright 👑
