"Jesse can be three people: He is Jesse, he is Jesco, and he is Elvis. Jesse is the most beautiful man that I could've ever loved. But Jesco, he, - he's somebody else. He's the devil in hisself. Uh, nothing satisfies him - he can't be happy....he feels no pain, he doesn't care about anybody, and the more people he can hurt the happier he is." - Norma Jean White
