Jess used to be relatively wealthy, was stripped of his money in 1996/97 and had to learn to exist without it.
In consequence of this and many other traumatic 'life occurrences' he descended into a physical fight for his life as well as going through the depression experience. He found himself going through a series of daunting, self-finding experiences and it took him 5 long years to recover to an acceptable state of being, during which he had begun helping others.
He soon had people knocking on his door and telling him about the dreadful lives they were living and he helpted them reach a better existence.
Still battling 'dark energy' that has harried and hampered his efforts to complete his books and get them to those who will benefit from the self-help message they hold he says he has had to 'live in a bubble of extreme patience whilst fighting a war of attrition against everything that tries every day to thwart my progress to help others'.
His efforts to do so on a larger scale finally became reality in 2010.
