    In 1978, Jess married Connie Hockers at Nativity Parish in Green Bay. They spent over thirty years together, and raised three sons. Jess was so proud of his three sons, Patrick, Andy and Jesse, and his legacy continues through them and his three grandchildren, Logan, Lucy and Charles.

He loved fishing on small lakes and in Canada, and boating in Door County, but his ultimate joy was teaching and mentoring his boys through extensive home remodeling projects.

    His latest venture was developing an aquaponics system and building a greenhouse on a self-sustaining plot of land in Plover. He looked forward to more remodeling projects in the boys' new homes.
