After he left the military, Jesse started a non-profit organisation called Combat Cookks that taught wounded soldiers how to surf.
Although Jesse was known to be really social and great at telling jokes, he suffered from PTSD and severe depression from his time spent in the military.
On the morning of the 14th of August, 2019, Jesse left his apartment in Scottsdale, Arizona driving his 2015 Silver Toyota Camry 4DSD with Nevada license plate 696G03. Jesse left his wallet, ID, service dog, and phone in his apartment. In the days leading up to his disappearance, Jesse had made several suicidal statements.
Jesse’s girlfriend reported him missing the next day. At the time of his disappearance, Jesse’s family believed he may have gone to Lees Ferry (a site on the Colorado River in Coconino County, Arizona) or to Mexico. Bill Pulte, a Twitter philanthropist, offered a $30,000 reward for information that would lead to Jesse’s whereabouts.
5 months after Jesse went missing, his vehicle was located in San Carlos, Arizona which is around 100 miles east of Phoenix, Arizona. According to Jesse’s twin sister, Patricia, the key was in the ignition and he had hunting and fishing equipment inside of the car. The only thing that was missing was a 9mm pistol.
Jesse is described as being a 37-year-old white male, 6″3′ and 200lbs. He has brown hair and blue eyes, and he had a fully-grown beard. Jesse also had tattoos on his left arm and a tattoo of the vertical word “RISE” and a human heart on his left chest. If Jesse is still alive today, he would be 40 years old.
Jesse’s family have also set up a website dedicated to raising awareness to find him. You can check the website out here.
