Jesse "Dexter" Slobin died at his residence, the Coronado Hotel, one day short of his 45th birthday. His Memorial Service was held at the Coronado Community Room and presided over by Rev. Glenda Hope.

Comments from friends, shared by Rev. Hope and others, included: "In the years that I have known you, you shared kindness and strength and put faith back in my heart". Another said he was "a very wonderful person. Like a lot of people, he had problems, but he had a kind heart." "He was real nice," another woman said. Out on Ellis Street, Craig, a Coronado neighbor, called Mr. Slobin, "the nicest person I've ever met. He was just reckless in his behavior. He self-sacrificed himself. He was always there for others, always. I've never met someone that outgoing and friendly."

He wanted to be a D.J. and preferred house beats and industrial beats. He was hoping to get a permit to sell poster-size prints of his digital media artwork that he would spend hours working on in his hotel room. "He was on that computer all the time," said Dave, who called Mr. Slobin his best friend.

Although he was homeless for many years, he was not homeless when he died. Friends believed he had been raised in an orphanage. He is known to have one sister.

He will be missed by his friends and neighbors.
