::: Steven "Jesse" Bernstein :::

This is my father, Steven Jesse Bernstein, otherwise known as Jesse (his moniker). He was a poet, playwrite, actor, wrote a handful of books, created music, played guitar and piano, sang and did poetry readings.

On 22 October 1991, he took a knife and stabbed himself three times in the neck, cutting the artery, committing suicide at the age of 40, about a month and a half before his 41st birthday which would have been on December 4th.
