Jesse was born August 12, 1936 in Ogden, Utah to John Clifford and Maren Janette Mitchell Mason. He graduated from Davis High School and received his Bachelor's Degree from Weber State. Jesse served in the Air Force for 7 years during the Korean Conflict.

Jesse married Sharon Taylor June 8, 1954 in Ogden; they were sealed in the Logan Temple on June 8, 1965. He treated Sharon like a queen; always showing her love and respect.

As a member of the LDS Church he served in the High Council, Bishopric, as the Finance clerk for 15 years and various other callings. He was also a very dedicated Home Teacher.

He worked at Swift and Company and retired from HAFB. Jesse loved woodworking, camping, fishing, hunting, fixing cars, gardening, going to the Temple, spending winter months in Quartzite, AZ with Sharon and above all spending quality time with his family.

Jesse received a heart transplant in June of 1992, which allowed him to spend another 21 ½ years with his family.
