UFO List – Below is a link to the front page article about Jess Marcel in the Helena’s Independent Record on Thursday, August 29th. It’s an AP story by Amy Beth Hanson, a reporter I’m not familiar with, so its probably in many newspapers around the country.
The memorial service will be at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, Sept. 4, at Anderson Stevenson Wilke Funeral Home, 3750 N. Montana Ave. The notice is in today’s IR (August 31, 2013.)
Dick O’Connor, who first worked with Jess 25 years ago at St. Peter’s hospital has written a wonderful memorial and tribute to his friend, posted on his website:
Last Tuesday at the Jesse Marcel Memorial Library, Dick showed a number of Youtube videos of both Jesse Marcel Jr., and his father. This first one is probably Jess Marcel Jr.’s last interview, from about a month ago at the Roswell crash site and invited into the home where they lived when his father woke up his family to show them some of what he found at the crash.
This is a short clip from the Citizen’s UFO Hearings at the end of April, 2013. Jess tells the story of being taken to a “secure” room by a govt. official many floors below ground level in the Capitol where the official nodded at Whitley Strieber’s book “Majestic” and said it was not fiction. (e.g. that Majestic 12 or MJ-12, a super secret panel overseeing government involvement and secrecy over UFOs and ETs does exist. Strieber’s book is written as fiction, but based on the stories and controversial evidence about the existence of this secret committee.)
This historical clip is of Jesse Marcel, Sr., when he went public about what he had actually seen at the crash site.
Both of these men have performed a huge service to history and the truth. It is very hard for me to believe that anyone could think they were mistaken, deluded or lying.
