He has always been a positive light that encourages others to love themselves . He is so full of life . I’ve spent a lot of time having deep conversations about life with Jesse , and he is someone I am able to turn to to discuss my own recovery journey as a recovered alcoholic. Jesse and I have recently reconnected more , and we plan to create music together and continue encouraging one another on our paths to recovery . He has been an integral part of my recovery and an inspiration to keep living life to the fullest no matter what is thrown my way . Jesse is so determined to take all life has to offer him and become the best version of himself as an individual and a father . Jesse’s love for his son is indescribable, and he deserves to give his son a life filled with love and a healthy father . We all have struggles in life , and Jesse had been awakened and I pray every day that a donor Match will come through . His son needs him here as well as the rest of us . He is a bright spot in all of our lives ! Let’s me some music, Jess ! Peace and love .
A transplant would mean getting to be the father Jesse always intended to be , which him and his son both deserve . A transplant would mean being able to exercise his passion for music and the arts and to continue to help others on their path to recovery .

Liver transplantation has been a successful treatment and standard of care for end-stage liver disease since the early 1980s.
Technical advancements in liver surgery, as well as the liver's tremendous ability to regenerate, have made living donor liver transplantation a life-saving reality.
There are currently 120,000 people waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant in the U.S. Of these, 15,000 await liver transplants.
Although more than 6,000 liver transplants were performed last year, over 1,700 patients died while waiting on the list.
Deceased donor livers are allocated to patients based on how sick they are, determined by their MELD score, where sicker patients receive priority.
Living donation offers patients the option of transplant before they get very sick--regardless of MELD score--significantly decreasing the time they wait for a liver.
Living donation not only saves the life of the recipient; it also frees up a liver for a patient on the waiting list who does not have that option.
The Model for End-Stage Liver Disease (MELD) and Pediatric End-Stage Liver Disease (PELD) are numerical, objective scales that allocate available livers to the sickest patients. Patients move up the list as their scores increase.
The first living donor liver transplant took place in 1988. Since then, living donors have continued giving the gift of life and making a difference.
When a recipient has a living donor, the wait time for transplant is shorter and the transplant can be scheduled in advanced when the recipient is in good health and when it is convenient for both the donor and the recipient.
Financial burdens shouldn’t prevent the gift of life. The National Living Donor Assistance Center (NLDAC) can offer financial support for living donor travel expenses.
