My grandmother’s second boy. Smooth. Dapper. Slick. Artistic. A chef. A painter. A hustler. A beloved uncle.
Happy birthday, Jesse Adam Henderson (17 April 1929-5 August 2005)!
Jesse, circa 1938, Wilson NC.
Circa 1944, Wilson NC.
With wife Jean and my grandmother, probably in the late 1950s, perhaps at the Jersey Shore.
Always “clean,” posted at the bar, 1960s.
One of my favorite photos of my uncle, with my niece, who adored him. Philadelphia, 2001.
