The Funeral of Jesse Heikkila (6 pics)
7 year-old Jesse Heikkila fought a long, hard battle with brain cancer. In his short life, he had to face a lot of challenges, but they never destroyed his dreams. Jesse wanted to be a superhero, or a police officer, or maybe even an Olympic swimmer. Sadly, his dreams were destroyed when he lost his struggle with brain cancer before he turned 8 years-old.
Jesse wasn’t your average 7 year-old boy. He had so many hopes and dreams. Because he wanted to grow up to fight bad guys, the local police chief made him an honorary officer of his force.
