Believe in Love
and the power it has
Let a loving heart carry you through,
For life works better
when you trust and believe,
The sky is the limit
to what Love can do.

Jesse Kimbrough 1947-2018 ... A True Soldier
Soldier is defined as a person who served or serves in an Army. Army is defined as a permanent organization of the military land forces of a nation or state. This is what Jesse Kimbrough chose to do shortly after finishing school. He served this Country and he excelled while doing it. After his retirement from active duty, Jesse never quit soldiering. He never lost that image of being a soldier and was able to make the transition back to a more traditional life. Often times not easily done.
Jesse returned home to join another Army. The definition of this army is defined as "a large number of people united for some specific purpose". The purpose he chose to undertake can be summed up in two words "giving back". Another two words that fits his undertaking is "helping others". The vehicles he selected for his endeavors was The Monroe High School Alumni Organization, The Monroe High School Class of 67 Organization, the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Organization, and several other organizations that he thought worthy.
Jesse was a tireless worker, who gave it his best shot whenever called upon to lead, assist, or offer guidance. Words such as no, I can't, it won't work, I don't have time, rarely came from him. A truly engaging individual who made you feel at ease whenever you encountered him. His legacy will live on. He left his mark. The Class of 1967 was able to reach higher and extend itself, because of his work. We have been honored and are extremely proud that he was a part of us.
