    Passing of Jesse Jones

    Post by BillC on Tue Jul 15, 2014 11:34 am

    Sad news to report. Jesse Jones, the director of yesterday's California State Games tournament, head of Unidos Judo Club, and SoCal judo fixture for decades ... went home last evening, poured a glass of wine, settled into his recliner ... and quietly passed away. Gentle end for a lifelong follower of the gentle art.

    I for one will miss him, a gentleman of the old school.

    Oh, East is East and West is West, and never the twain shall meet,
    Till Earth and Sky stand presently at God's great Judgment Seat;
    But there is neither East nor West, Border, nor Breed, nor Birth,
    When two strong men stand face to face, though they come from the ends of the earth!
