Jesse Williams’ Legacy
Five years have gone by since Santa Rosa native, U.S. Army SSGT Jesse Williams, U.S. Army, was killed in action in Iraq. A few weeks before, Jesse asked his Stryker Unit buddy, Sgt. Kevin Mincio to promise that if anything happened to Jesse, Mincio would take care of the financial future of his daughter.
With a promise to keep, Sgt. Mincio created the Team Jesse Foundation and launched the first fundraising effort—a challenging 4200 mile bicycle ride from Santa Rosa to NYC, arriving at Ground Zero 95 days later…on the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
Jesse’s father, Herb Williams, will bring us up-to-date at the Sept. 26 Rotary meeting.
