Four Year Blogging Anniversary for Your Business Blogger(R)
Jesse Brown This is a re-post of Your Business Blogger’s(R) first entry on Yoest.com. Merged with CharmaineYoest.com a few months later. Business Blogging continues at www.Yoest.com.
Jesse Brown, 58, passed away some three years ago. He was my friend and business partner. This inaugural post on Labor Day 2005 is to honor his memory and his work.
He was wounded by enemy fire in Vietnam leaving his right arm and hand partially paralyzed. This never slowed him down.
His passion for service helped him become the Veteran’s Affairs Secretary for Bill Clinton.
And yet he helped me, a nobody who worked for a Republican governor.
Jesse is buried in Arlington National Cemetery, not far from my dad. Two warriors to whom I owe so much.
