LAKE COUNTY, Calif. – A bright light was taken from this world far too soon.

Jesse spent his life enjoying every day of it. Despite a long battle with epilepsy, he always had a sunny and carefree disposition. He was not one to let life or his illness get him down.

Jesse was fiercely loyal to those he loved and will be missed dearly.

Jesse was greeted at Heaven's gate by his mother, Elaine Werre, and his best friend and beloved dog, Joey.

Jesse leaves behind many loved ones, including his father R. "Butch" Petray, four brothers and one sister.

A celebration of life will be held for Jesse and his mother Elaine on April 2 at 2 p.m. at Highland Springs Recreation Area, Lakeport.
