Bio: Jess has been married to Maxine for over 42 years (we're not old we married young). He and Maxine have nine grown children ranging in age from 42 down to 19. They also have 17 grandchildren ranging in age from 20 down to under 1 year. Jess has also been a Hebrew Editing Assistant and researcher. His major in Bible College was Biblical Languages (Ok, so we'll just say that Jess is at least mildly OCD). Jess has also pastored 3 different churches over the last 13 1/2 years. Jess is currently attending a church in Springfield, Missouri with Maxine where they are enjoying being part of a strong mid-town congregation. Jess hopes his health and God's leading allow him to get back to teaching and preaching God's Word real soon.
