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 experiences he descended into a physical fight for his life as well as going through depression. He found himself facing 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 found he was able to shine a light into their darkness and help them find their way to a better existence.
Still battling the 'dark energy' that has harried and hampered his efforts to complete his books and get them to those who will benefit from the powerful 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 desperately every day to thwart my progress towards helping others'.
His efforts to do so on a larger scale finally became reality in 2010.
