   Born October 14, 1996 in Springfield, Illinois, Jesse was the son of Ralph B. and Lana Charlton Mullis Jr.

His favorite teams were the St. Louis Cardinals, St. Louis Rams, Kansas City Chiefs and his favorite Nascar Driver was Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jesse also loved the social media, especially Facebook.

Oltman and Victor and Mary Charlton; paternal great grandparents, William and Goldie Powell; and two uncles, Dennis  Winningham and John Allen Charlton.

Jesse and his smile will be missed in my 2nd hour biology class. He inspired all of us to persevere and try our best. I know words can not express the emotions you are going through, but please know that many prayers and expressed sympathy are with you.

God Bless!

Lana, Ralph and Lenae
Jesse has always had a special place in my heart. I remember a baby who was soothed by Tim McGraw, a little boy who liked to do handstands, my little buddy playing T-ball and may more memories. Find comfort in your memories. Lana please call me if there is anything I can do for you and your family.

I am very sorry for your loss. Jesse was such a great student in class and was always so good at getting me into a conversation about the St. Louis Cardinals instead of History, like we should have!

His smile and constant positive attitude was very infectious and something all of us could learn from!
