  3. There are very few people who would remember this but Jess Warner was a tough, hard-nosed basketball player for FHS from 1953-1956. One hated to and did not look forward to going up against him.

    A great guy.

  4. My condolences go out to the Warner family. I first met Jesse in 1961-62 as his mother-in-law lived next door to me. Posting pictures on within the past few weeks, I came across a picture taken in 1962 with Jesse standing on the sidewalk with his mother-in-law standing on her porch. Never got to know Jesse as he married Bonnie and they moved to Volney. My condolences go out to the Warner family.
