For over fifty years, Jesse was a well known and much loved Free Will Baptist preacher both in the northern counties of Middle Tennessee and in Southern Kentucky. He kept a record of all his baptisms that is in the permanent library collection of the Free Will Baptist College in Nashville, Tennessee. He was always known as an exceptionally bright man, and Judge Felts in Nashville once commented, “He has more native intelligence than any man I have ever known.”
