Jesse Coon has been an inspiration to many master's swimmers for years. He is in his nineties and is well known for his extraordinary ability to swim 50, 100 and 200 butterfly after reaching the age of 90. He also has records in the 100, 200 and 400 Individual Medley. Jesse is suffering from cancer and his diagnosis is not good. He is still in great spirits and and is doing some exercise. He is a retirement home in Bryan, Texas. I went out to visit with him the other day and he was as delightful as he has always been. He is still very much "with it" -- the ladies out there love him. I would encourage anyone who would like to contact him to do so ASAP. I am sure he would appreciate cards or phone calls from any of his old-swimming friends. His address is:
