If memory serves me correctly, Jesse Hodges was a little hero at the age of 3 to 4. Jesse was at the Antique Shop on US 60 with his Mom and little baby sister, and the Shop was robbed, both Jesse's Mom and the owner were assaulted (BADLY)) and little Jesse walked to the main road, and someone stopped to help them. Is this correct? May Jesse R.I.P.

Yes this is true, he was a little Hero. He was a special person, he had a good heart. I still can't believe he is gone,,my heart breaks for his family, they have had so many loses in the past couple of years. I don't understand, and probably never will why things happen the way they do. Please keep his family and loved ones in your prayers, this is such a tragedy. RIP Jessee, you were soooo loved by so many!!

I didnt know Jesse very well, but he helped out with the Bengals football team. My son played and Jesse always had a ball with the kids!Always laughing and encouraging all the kids! My sympathy goes out to his family and friends! RIP Jesse

He was the only person to be able to fit under my wood stove. Not, too many people know that story. Good Times!!! Many of them!!

The touch football game that Kyler, Jesse's stepson put together today in his memory was amazing! So many kids showed up that Jesse coached and they celebrated Jesse. Kyler seemed to find peace in it. Jesse was wonderful with the kids in the community and he will be missed but never forgotten. Prayers for Shayne, Kyler, and Shelby. They are such a sweet family that have just suffered great tragedies.
