Jess was a member of the 1981 Hyannis Longhorns state wrestling team and as a senior Jess qualified for the high school national finals rodeo in steer wrestling. After high school he attended Eastern Wyoming College on a rodeo scholarship. Jess was a talented artist and enjoyed many hobbies including wood working, hunting, fishing, and ranching.
