Email from Joe Brady earlier:

Here's the updated information on Michelle Alswager and her son, Jesse.

The visitation and funeral will be held Monday from 3 to 7 pm on the west side of Madison on Raymond Road. Jesse's obituary is scheduled for Saturday's Wisconsin State Journal.

Watch the local news Channel 27 Thursday evening news at 10:00 for a feature on Jesse. Channel 15 may also have a segment on Thursday (or on Friday).

At present, Michelle and family have plenty of food. She's answering her phone when she can. Since you are a supporter of the cause to cure diabetes, take comfort in Michelle's words and spirit as found on Jesse's memorial website. Michelle writes, "I've spent the past 10 years fighting for Jesse and a cure, and rest assured his passing is just the beginning."


If you would like to mail a card to Michelle and her family, please email me for her mailing address.
