Jesse was eight years old when he passed away. On the day Jesse passed away, he was at school. He, along with his class and his teacher, were in the school's auditorium. He asked his teacher if he could leave the auditorium and go to the classroom to get something. The teacher told him that he could, but when Jesse never returned, went to check on him.
The teacher found Jesse with serious injuries to his neck. She quickly called for help, but by the time it arrived, Jesse had passed away as a result of his injuries. A few hours after Jesse's death, a man known as Julien C. was arrested. He admitted that he had been in Jesse's school when Jesse was attacked, but said that he had not been the one who attacked Jesse. He was on probation for a previous robbery.
Julien C. was found guilty of attacking and killing Jesse, and he was sentenced to twelve years. It is believed that Julien killed Jesse with a kitchen knife that he brought to the school from his home.
