  • comeback by Larry Jessee...UTEP?

    I heard rumors that the famous Pole Vaulter and American Champion and Master's Record Holder, Larry Jessee is making a comeback at over 50 and is already jumping 16 and change. This comes my way from a Secretary at the UTEP school and worked the Hall of Fame banquet where Larry was inducted with Ted Banks. Does anyone know about this comeback?

              You must not be a fan of one of the USA's greatest vaulters? Have you harkened back to the 80's when Benn Fields and Larry Jessee formed their own World Victory Tour with the support of meet promoter Andy Norman and got together a real bad boys team of performers? Including Joe Dial? It was an amazing group of hole in the wall gang leaders and they gave 10 percent of their toe the line money to local british charities...all for big daddy Norman and Talbot Games

                Larry Jessee comeback

                I sail with Larry Jessee on a regular basis and he has never talked about a pole vaulting comeback. He is the Director of a company that makes running tracks and missed a good portion of the spring sailing season as he was travelling to track meets around the country. I do not know much about his athletic past, as he never speaks about this when we are around the boats, I know he was a NCAA Champion. As for the real Larry Jessee, just as an example he is hosting a sailing event for the Marine ROTC and children of Marine Veterans at the lake in August. A story appeared in the national sailing magazine " Sailing World" about Larry and our club in the September 2003 issue.

                    Re: World Victory Tour

                    Andy Norman didn't need any support putting together a tour. Have you given up talking to yourself and being deleted on letsrun, Brian?

                      I hope I'm not the only one who notices that Brian THERIOT's posts are often nothing but a casual list of names of people he's met. Sometimes it's simply a pure list, other times its a very thinly veiled excuse for a list, but a pointless list nonetheless.

                        I'll believe it when I see it at Masters Nationals.

                            We have factual updates on Jessee

                            Larry was injured last week at the V Club in Juarez. He was nicked in the achilles by a stray bullet. He is fine but this effectively ended his comeback for at least 6 months. On Theriot? He was last seen at Staples with the Jackson family saying goodbye to MJ. Brian and Michael were very close friends. and became great neighbors off Havenhurst. Theriot moved to Encino to be closer to his son's final year at UCLA football before entering the NFL and to watch his daughter entering UCLA as an 800 meters gal. Larry Jessee is recovering quite well and already training on a donated Trek Bike. Benn Fields is also jumping again, going 6'8 at a local indoor mall promotion in his hometown to benefit local United Way Kids. Andy Norman, rest his soul, was the greatest of all promoters and took care of what Benn Fields and Larry Jessee started was what they called The World Victory Tour. It was stationed at crystal palace....England.
