I can only speak for myself, because I know Jessie interacted with everyone. Marilyn Stemp introduced Jessi to me many years ago in Sturgis at the Buffalo Chip early one morning to do a shoot on a specially built Harley, and she couldn’t have been more cooperative. We rode up and down the Chip’s back road for an hour taking hundreds of images, but since then, we’ve met up at the rallies many times & Jessi was always as warm as your best friend. Sturgis was special this year because Jessi & I were able to talk & joke around almost daily. I ran into her & her friends during the evening concerts & daily at the bike shows. She was always approachable by anyone & everyone, what a wonderful gal. The world sure needs more of Jessie, that’s for sure. Here are a few images from our original shoot many years ago.
