Jesse Thiry Scholarship of Honor
As graduation at Luxemburg-Casco High School drew near in 2000, Jesse knew one thing for sure…he wanted to join the Marines. It was midway through high school, where he ran track and wrestled, that he focused on getting in shape and joining the military. All this well before America was at war, and well before September 11th. Education became a part of his life as a Marine. He was a weapons instructor helping new recruits. After finishing his 4-year stint he planned to marry his high school sweetheart, but with months left to serve he volunteered to go to Iraq.
