He was born on April 8, 1963 to Rosemarie Engelhard Jessee and the late Robert James Jessee. In addition to his father he was also preceded in death by his daughter, Ashley Jessee Brown.

This week Rick's Fujifilm family has been grieving immeasurably at the news of his passing. It is impossible to say in words the impact that Rick had on so many of us here and how broken our hearts are to lose him as a friend and cherished colleague. The card linked below illustrates some of the positive and life changing impact Rick had on us as individuals and as a company that he called home for 20 years. He trained so many of us (must have been hundreds!) in lean six sigma, led us through problem analysis sessions for innumerable biologics that have impacted countless patients and helped us solve the most challenging problems within our company. Aside from that, he was a friend to everyone lucky enough to meet him.

We are thinking of you all and sending healing thoughts your way.

I was blessed to have known Rick during his tenure at Fujifilm.  He was a light spirit, had a heart of joy, and passion for helping people be the best they can be. Rick was emblazoned with the Fujifilm "Genki" trait (being enthusiastic).  He was so passionate about making our work life a better place and to help us through our tough times so we could continue to be successful.  I had the pleasure of training the company, alongside Rick, on a topic so dear to him from his Operational Excellence mindset, to help people get to the root cause of the issues and keep a continuous improvement mindset.  He would challenge you until you were uncomfortable in your thought process, and then bring you back to the full meaning of it and laugh with you along the way.  He has truly made a positive impact and positive difference in our lives just by being part of it.  He will truly be missed.  He and his passion are irreplaceable. As I reflect on Rick's sudden passing, I am truly disheartened by my lack of responsibility to let Rick know just how much he meant to me and how much we really appreciated him and his dedication to us.  He worked tirelessly to continue to make us all better.  Because of how kind and giving he was, I am taking comfort in the fact that Rick didn't need the verbal appreciation, because he was a giver, not a taker.  And the joy he had from teaching and showing was all the appreciation he needed.  We should find comfort that he is with our Lord in a better place and his spirit will live on in the legacy he left with us at Fujifilm. Thank you for allowing him to be part of our family too.
