A memorial gathering for Clinton Todd Jessee at Re-bar October 4

Clinton Todd Jessee was a force of nature. Anyone who knew him could tell you he lit up a room.

Many may remember Clinton from his many musical theater performances. However, it was his bigger than life drag persona, Frida Layy, that really left a mark in the community. Frida, like Clinton, dazzled when she performed and was always the life of the party. As Frida, Clinton brought the community together not only with many performances around the community, but also volunteering his time to various fundraisers and charities.

More recently, Clinton had been very involved in politics. You may remember seeing him don a costume during the 2016 presidential campaign as 'Captain Hillster' and would rally for Hillary Clinton and the Democratic party. His political efforts and activism extended beyond that election as he was recently involved in the upcoming mid-term elections.

Beyond his legacy in theater, drag, politics and charity, Clinton left a bigger legacy, a family. Not just his loving family including his parents, brother, sister-in-law, and beautiful nieces, but a family of friends. He considered every friend he made his family. He never forgot a birthday, anniversary or any momentous occasion. Always giving of his time, he never left a friend in need, never asking anything in return. His love knew no end.

In a time lacking in kindness Clinton had kindness to spare. He gave when he had little to give. In a selfish world he was selfless.

Sadly now, the world now is missing a little bit of those qualities, as he has left us too soon.

In memory of Clinton we will be celebrating his laughter, love and spirit with stories, performances and drinks. Please join us at Re-bar, 1114 Howell St, on Thursday, October 4, beginning at 7pm. (NOTE: Re-bar is 21+ with ID and cash only.)
