Later as an adult Jesse became a personal trainer, first responder, fire fighter and was most recently sworn in as a Fire Inspector with the Norwalk Fire Department. Jesse has been recognized and received multiple awards for bravery and saving lives. From off duty performing CPR on a heart attack victim while grocery shopping, to carrying a severely burned elderly woman down three flights of stairs from an engulfed apartment building fire. Jesse loved music, cooking, rock climbing and especially surfing, but more than anything he loved his future wife, his dog, his family and his friends.

  • Johnny, Scott, Mr. & Mrs. Granton, Diana, and the rest of the Granton family,

    Although we did not know Jesse personally, we know Johnny & Scott, and from the men they are, their personalities, and fun loving, yet respectful men that they are, we can only begin to imagine the heartache and loss you are all going through at this terrible time. Jesse , in all accounts, appeared to be a wonderful human being with a wonderful life, and we are deeply and incredibly sorry for your families loss.

    May you find some, if any comfort, knowing that he is at peace and cradled in God’s loving arms, as he is most certainly being accepted into Heaven. He will watch over each and every one of you from here on out. Heaven gained another Angel this past weekend, and your Angel here on earth has moved on to his next chapter and gained his wings. All be it too soon, for he had so much more to do here, yet God needed him more, for what reason, you may never know, or, it may become apparent in the future. He will be with you all, each and every moment….you will see, maybe even hear signs of him in your presence. Don’t be afraid, accept them for what they are, I know I do with my brother. and it’s an amazing weight lifted off my shoulders at the time. He always knows when to show up. We are so deeply sorry for your loss. God Bless you all.
