    Jesse, you might ask your physician to try breathing treatments with albuterol and see if it helps with the feelings of suffocation. Talk to them and ask about a respiratory therapy consult if you haven't tried this. I understand you might feel your medical team isn't helping, but it is very important that you communicate your needs, feelings and symptoms. Communication has to flow between the patient and the medical team. I hope you have a good night.

    Jesse, I keep reflecting on all I have learned from you these past months. You taught me to see an axel takeoff. In your own skating you showed me such natural gifts as well as some of the hard work it took you to achieve your technique. (How gutsy to post your falls on Youtube!) I learned what it looks like to endure misery with grace, truth, courage, and even humor. And how much awful suffering there is in this life that healthy people dont even dream of. And not to take my body for granted. And I got to know your wonderfully intelligent, quirky self, with your love of clarity, your patience (with me especially), your firm opinions, your ability to make beautiful music without (according to you) having a real love of music (can't say I understand that one), your passion for skating and your deep knowledge of the IJS. I even learned about Canada. I dont want to go on and on so I will stop... but there is so much I am thankful to you for.

    And I hope to God that you are getting relief and AIR, and that your team is getting its act together.

    I too am glad that he is no longer suffering, but so wish that he hadn't to begin with. He was always such a positive guy - never a bad word about anyone, always a haha or LOL in his posts. Beautiful skater, and seemed like a genuinely super nice guy.

    I hope his family is able to make peace with their loss. RIP Jesse, aka Spazactaz - you will not be forgotten.

    The world has lost an amazing man, and we have lost our friend Jesse....he was such an inspiration. I had always admired his skating thru the videos, and what a pure natural talent he had been blessed with. I admired the courage, strength and determination he had thru this horrible illness. He endured so much pain and suffering, but never forgot to check in with his friends here. He will be deeply missed, and he will continue to be an inspiration to all that had the pleasure of knowing him.

    Wow, this is devastatingly sad news. He was such a young, sweet guy.

    I am glad his pain has ended though. His last few posts made me so sad to know he was suffering so much. May he be forever in peace now.
