On June 14, 2016 on a photo request I made for his grave, a fellow contributor wrote me the following:

Cemetery office confirmed that this burial is unmarked

They also reported, specifically:
Susan at the main office did confirm that Jesse is buried there , he is in Section AA Block 1 lot 3 grave 1. Unfortunate the grave is not marked.
