I'M SURE THAT THE GOOD LORD HAD A SPECIAL PLACE OF HONOR AWAITING DEAR JESSE. HE CERTAINLY WAS A PERSON WHO IS MOST DESERVING DUE TO THE WAY HE LIVED HIS LIFE HE WAS A CHAMPION FOR ALL STUDENTS HE ENCOUNTERED. HE TRULY LOVED THEM. HIS TEACHERS FOUND HIM TO BE A PHENOMINAL LEADER WHO ALWAYS PROTECTED AND DEFENDED THEM SO THAT THE CHILDREN WOULD RECEIVE THE BEST. IT WAS ALL FOR THE CHILDREN, ALWAYS. MY THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS ARE WITH YOU,CONNIE. YOUNG JESSE, YOU AND YOUR WIFE WILL MISS HIM GREATLY. WRAP YOUR HEARTS WITH FOND MEMORIES. PEACE AND STRENGTH TO THE FERNANDES FAMILY IN THIS LOSS. FIND COMFORT IN THE FACT THAT THIS MOST LOVING AND TRULY GOOD MAN IS BEING MOURNED BY SO MANY NEAR BY AND FAR AWAY. CLARA

Mr. Fernandes was a caring, generous and nurturing man. As my Principal, I have only the fondest memories of our conversations throughout my days at DeMello School. Over the years, there was never a time I saw him that he did not remember me as he did with many of his students. He lived life to the fullest and gave like no other. Today, I am a mother myself of a 3rd grader and I can only hope that he has an opportunity to have an experience like I had with my dear Principal, Mr. Ferenandes. My thoughts are with all his family. I can only imagine how he will be missed. Fondly, Lisa Birknes Tavares

My deepest and most sincere heartfelt sympathies go out to you Connie and Jesse III. Jesse will be terribly missed by so many people because he touched so many lives in so many positive ways, much more than you probably can even imagine. He was one of the most kindest, gentlest, genuine and loving people I ever knew. He made sure he always said something that made you feel good about yourself and would put a smile on your face. He always made you feel important and that you really mattered to him. I have lost a true and caring friend but just knowing that I have so many wonderful memories of him will help me through. Connie, May God give you the strength to endure during these difficult days ahead. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you all.
