Jesse, affectionately known by his family and friends as "Frankie" and "Jesse Duke" was well-known in the community. He was often called "The Peacemaker" because he loved keeping and making peace amongst everyone. Jesse enjoyed riding his motorcycle, dancing, spending time with his family and friends and riding down the road to play the slots. As a kid and even in adulthood, Jesse loved dancing to "YMCA". He was definitely the life of the party and kept you laughing. During football season, Jesse could be found watching and cheering on his Alabama "Roll Tide" Football Team. Although Jesse loved keeping the peace, he could throw you a spring of wisdom whether you wanted to catch it or not.

Leaving behind to forever cherish Jesse's beautiful memories are his four daughters, Tiarra Sherie Dye, Ericka McAfee, Tiffany Wynn and Jessica McAfee; five brothers, Charles B. Strown, Bobby Earl (Rita) Strown, Richard Allen (Renee) Strown, Eric Jackson and Aundre Jackson; three sisters, Darlene (Curt) Gooden-Welch, Peggy Strown and Bertha Embry; six grandchildren, and a host of aunts, uncles, other relatives and friends.
