Legendary Sheriff of Iberville Parish
Served 1964-1978, to death at 46 yr. old
Youngest LA Sheriff ever elected at 29 yr. old
Former LA State Trooper
Colorful, flamboyant, and controversial
Adored by Iberville Parish citizens, idolized
much as Elvis Presley is.
Many still believe Jessel is alive and well and that there
will never be another Sheriff like Jessel in Iberville Parish.
"In your heart, you know he's right" was the slogan he used.
He was indicted on 33 State and Federal charges and was aquitted
on all counts, including hung jury trials.
A book was due to be written about Jessel's life and times as
Sheriff.
