Jesses nickname for Scarlett is “Turkey” don’t know where it came from but we often joked how much Scarlett loved to wrestle her daddy it was an everyday thing an especially right before bed with me yelling “can you please not get her riled up Jesse” what’s funny is he would let her go Wild like full on punches and I’d yell “not in the face Scarlett” he would just crack up laughing how relentless she was with him… it was her way of showing her daddy that she was crazy about him❤️Jesse your wild lil Turkey misses you so much.
The GoFundMe campaign has a $50,000 aim and gives the motorcycle community and Rooke’s associates the opportunity to support his family. The GoFundMe campaign is endorsed by the official Rooke Customs Instagram page.
Jesse Rooke was 45 years old when he died in the tragic motor accident.
The funds raised will go towards his funeral expenses and support for his daughter, according to the GoFundMe campaign page.
“It is unknown at this time the amount of support the family will need for funeral expenses and unforeseen cost to take care of his daughter so we did not intend to set a limited goal. However, any assistance of any kind is greatly appreciated during this difficult time.”
The motorcycle community is honoring Jesse Rooke in the wake of his death. The legendary bike builder left behind a legacy and is survived by his partner Ashley and daughter Scarlett.
