JESSE's story was that of a home-town boy who made good--in spades. Born and
reared in Denton County, he made a career out of admiralty and maritime law,
and made money in transportation and oil. He made a fortune and he gave away
a fortune. The list of his beneficiaries is almost endless. RAYZOR's history

flour manufacturer, he hustled himself a law degree from Chicago University
and parlayed his legal fees into business success.
