In Memory

Jesse James - Crew Of 1969

Jesse James was our First Class Boatswain's Mate in third division during  the years of 1969-1971 on the USS Seattle.  He was the best Petty Officer a Boatswain's Mate could ever have for a leader!  It was Jesse who gave me the job of Coxswain of the Gig, which everyone knows I loved it. He taught me everything I knew on running the rigs and hard work.
