Jess RIP

Postby R1830 » Tue Mar 13, 2018 11:58 am

I heard today that Jes Anderson(Jess on here) passed away after a long battle with illness. He was a great help to me getting started with my truck and we had picked up parts for each other and chatted about our trucks for the last few years. He was a good guy and will be missed. He last posted on here November 26. I had emailed him a few times in the last couple weeks about picking up 2 of his rougher M37's (he had 4) but hadn't heard back so I was worried about him. Saw the two trucks up on the net this morning so he must not have told his wife I was taking them. Hopefully the go to a good home. https://www.usedvictoria.com/classified ... s_31422755 if you are interested not sure who the guy is Jes just didn't want them to get scrapped.

I hope someone gets them because it appears that they are at a junk yard or scrapyard.

I'm sorry to hear this.

Though I never met Jess I've enjoyed his posts and responses over the years. My impression was he was much like RMS said, an all around good guy. Hope his family is doing OK.

RIP Jess

I don't recall his posts. I have lost some friends and family in the past year. Here, we also have a family, and as time passes, so will more of us. Peace to his loved ones.

So sorry to hear this! RIP friend. Saddest part of our forum experience-losing our friends.

FYI forum mates, if you do a search for "Jess" it will provide a number of hits for your review if you are so inclined.
