Jesse AlbertsonGranbury students and staff are mourning for Jesse Albertson, a Granbury Middle School student who passed away on June 21, 2010.


Having just completed the eighth grade at GMS, Albertson would have been a freshman at Crossland Ninth Grade Center next school year.  He had attended the Crossland summer academy on June 7-18.


“This is sad news,” said GMS principal Diane Fullerton.  “Jesse was a really good kid, and he was well liked by his teachers and other students.  He was very involved in athletics and in our boys’ choir.”


Fullerton continued, “Our thoughts are with Jesse’s family and friends during this time.”


For students who need to speak about Jesse’s death or the tragedy involving the Richie and Duree families, counselors will be available at GMS on June 22-23 from 9:00 A.M.-2:00 P.M.
