My prayers and thoughts are with you all as you mourn Jesse. I am heart broken to hear the news. I had not spoken with him for about ten or eleven years. I am married now and also have a 6 year old boy. He left behind some precious children and memories. I can picture him playing with Blue Dog right now. Prayers sent your way, Jessica Wernberg/Schwehr

My friend you will always have a place in my heart and my memory. All the times you made me smile and laugh. You were the perfect friend! I will miss you!

To Jesse's sons, He very much loved you and thought the world of you. When you grow up if you ever wonder, always know that. He loved you very much. When he talked of you ... you were his world.

Gretchen (Drenkow) Anderson

What a loving tribute to Jesse! I am classmate of his ~ from grade school on up ~ and remember him exactly as his obituary describes him. He always had a mischevious twinkle in his eye. I love the desciption of his interaction with his kids. God bless you as you struggle to make sense of this tragedy.
Most sincere symapthy, Gretchen

It made me smile to read about how you enjoyed jumping on the bed and having yelling contensts with your sons. You had a child-like spirt while at the same time you had so miuch wisdom in ares of philosophy, science, and history, yet you were never arrogant about it... My deepest condolences to your sons, family, loved ones, and your chilhuahua.

I have had the privilege to say that Jesse has been my friend since 1986. My friend jesse had the greatest laugh n biggest smile. That's something that I will always remember about Jesse. When I look at his boys u really see that awesome smile thru them. I will also remember the times he would pick me up in his moms car. We really loved cruising in her beautiful car! The love Jesse sheared for his family and his mother was pretty amazing! Love you, will miss you my, brother!!

Dear Burley Family,
I cannot imagine the heartache you must feel now. The obituary posted on Boulger's website was very beautiful. It soundls like Jesse was loved by many people.
Please write down all the wonderful things you remember about Jesse, and save them for his sons-- so they will be able to capture a part of their dad when they get older.

God's strength and love,

Monica J Stich

Our thoughts go out to the family of Jess.
I have known Jess since I was little, grew up going to school with him, and was a roommate of his when he lived in his Grandmother's house. I am shocked at the news, and it is always a tragedy when someone so young is lost. Definitely one of the most intelligent people I have ever known.

Amy (Nysveen) Welter

Mapleton ND

My sincere sympathy and prayers for your family. Jesse had an amazing personality and will be missed.
~Oh I know there is no place you can go to and I know you don't know anyone at all, so come walking with me my little one. And remember that the only time is now. Well strange is the story your eyes tell me and quiet all the few words that you say, so come and hold my hand, for you see I'd understand. And remember the only time is now. Oh I come to you a ragged laughing stranger and you come to me an angel of the night, so I'll dance and we will sing, for it doesn't mean a thing to remember that the only time is now. So forget about your yesterday of sorrow and forget about the darkness you have seen for there's only you and me at the edge of an endless sea. And remember that the only time is now.
~The Grateful Dead

I am so saddened for your loss. Jesse's personality is such a rarity. Someone you don't forget. Even though I only knew Jesse as Kristen's brother, for the past 25 years every time I see a Chia Pet I think of Jesse, his unique humor and that extraordinary smile of his. To those that knew and love Jesse, know you are extremely blessed.

Belle Plaine MN

My family was neighbors with the Burleys back in the day out north of Fargo. It was the early 80's & life was good. All of us neighbor kids played together without a care in the world. I remember Jesse teasing us girls & tormenting his little sisters with a big smile on his face the whole time. That is how I am going to remember him as the carefree & happy Desperado.

With sympathy to his entire family.

I've known Jesse for over a year playing Mafia Wars online. Although we have never met in person, he always had a funny comment on my posts and made me smile. I'm saddened to hear of his death and will miss his presence in the virtual world. He made lots of people smile with his comments and song choices.

Thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. May you find comfort in each other's support and know that he was loved by many.
