Holy fuck, I know him. That’s Jesse.
He came into the center when I worked there, he is such a kind, polite young man.
Oh my god, wow, I heard that this happened—“a homeless youth was brought on stage to accept an award”, blah blah blah, it’s probably some no-name actor—but I didn’t think they would actually go out onto the streets of LA and find a real person.
I’m glad they found Jesse, and I hope this moment benefits him exponentially. He deserves it with everything he has fought through, and still is fighting.
