Musician. A native of Richmond, Virginia, he was born Jesse Paul Burnett Jr. Along with Nathaniel Ruff, Earl Christian, Tom Eldridge, and Ray Smith, he founded the vocal group The Jarmels in 1959. Known for their pop and rhythm and blues mixed sound (with a mix of the Drifters style), the group's first single was, "Little Lonely One." This was followed by "A Little Bit Of Soap", which became a number 12 single in 1961, and "Come On Girl" in 1963. Following several personal changes to the band including new members, The Jardels eventually disbanded in the late 1960s. Among their other recordings are, "She Loves To Dance", "Little Bug", "You Don't Believe A Word I Say", "I'll Follow You", "Loneliness", "Gee Oh Gosh", "One By One", "Why I Am A Fool", and "Red Sails In The Sunset." Burnett served in the U. S. Army during the Vietnam War.
