A Little About Jesse

Jesse Michael Simon of Boulder, a sweet, precious young man, led an amazing life in his short 16 years. He chose to leave this world on Nov. 18th, 2010 to find peace and serenity.

Jesse's insights and understandings were well beyond his years. Sometimes it seemed that he could see right into a person's soul and feel their joy or pain. He was so special and surrounded by love from so many.

Jesse was happiest working on small engines and building inventions of his own design. He loved flying radio-controlled airplanes with his dad. He enjoyed playing video games with his friends. Jesse most recently lived on a ranch where he was learning to ride, care for and connect with horses. He was a talented musician, playing the drum set, writing poetry for lyrics, and playing the music he wrote with his bands.

Jesse is preceded in death by his Grandma Sybil Simon and his Grandpa Julie Bender who he knew he would meet in heaven. Jesse is survived by his parents Andi Jason and David Simon, his Grandma Edith Jason and Grandpa Lou Simon, many aunts, uncles and cousins, his birthmother Fran Houston and his beloved dog Juni - all of whom love him deeply.

Jesse is now a kite soaring up to heaven. Please help us lift his spirit and celebrate his life at a memorial service led by Rabbi Tirzah Firestone.

Jesse Simon, is without execption among the kindest, most gentle and sympathetic men I have ever known. I say he "is" because of the impact he presently has on my life. Jesse, on the night of his death, honored me with some of his final words and thoughts. He was truly the best of us and I will carry his memory with me always.

It's been 2 years now since Jesse's death, and I just remember what a good friend he was. We went to preschool together, our families would go out to dinner, we went to each other's birthdays, I showed him the Pokemon Trading Card Game and we went to tournaments, we played Guitar Hero, Call of Duty and many other video games together, and the list just goes on. I remember one time when I was having some hard times, Jesse visited me at the hospital and we played some Pokemon Cards. That really cheered me up. I just wish I had been able to do the same for him. Rest in peace, my good friend, and I hope to see you there in 80 years. Andreas
