I met him in Japan, at a military strongman comp. Went up to him, said "Hi what's up I post on your forum sometimes" went back and sat down with my ex-wife and had some baskin Robins
Anyways, we got up to leave, and he came over and said thanks so much for our support of him etc, and we shot the shit for at least 30-45 minutes more.
I know I come off as an ass at times, and in all honesty I don't have many TRUE friends. But I tell you what. Jesse was by far and large the most genuine NICE guy I have ever met.
It's a sad day for a lot of people.
