This is Jessie
at 18
in 1982.

"You could be a professional model,"
I told him.

"Gee, I don't know.
Do you really think so?"
he asked.

with a longevity record
rivaled by few.

Each time his 
handsome face would appear
in a magazine layout,
I would say to whomever
I was with,
"I did his first photo shoot!"

To which the
general response was,
"Yeah, right."
