Richard Arthur "Dick" Jesse

Richard Arthur "Dick" Jesse, age 63, died unexpectedly on Sept. 5, 2019, at his home in Crandon. He was born Nov. 5, 1955, in Tomahawk, to John and Shirley (Ifland) Jesse.

Dick attended grade school in Tomahawk and high school in Rhinelander, graduating from Rhinelander High School in 1973. As a youth he was involved in Scouting and swimming. He swam on the RHS swim team and then for two years at UW-SP under his beloved coach Red Blair.
