RAY H. JESSUP
Optimism is one of the most potent qualities of the progressive business man; his faith in the ultimate success of his plans is decisive, unchanging, and failure to him is only a nudge of fate to avoid a similar pitfall in his next venture. In Mr. Jessup we find a man who, never doubting his powers, took the tool life offered him and while patiently working with it, was ever on the alert for the opportunity which he felt assured would eventually pass within his grasp. He was born in Antioch, Contra Costa county, Cal., October 6, 1870, receiving a common school education. In 1886 he moved to Santa Barbara and three years later located in Riverside. In September, 1889, he started in to learn the business with G. Rouse & Co., where he is still employed, having served also as vice president of the firm since its incorporation in 1905.

Mr. Jessup is an active member of the Native Sons of the Golden West, Riverside Parlor No. 251, and of Riverside Lodge No. 643, B. P. O. E. Throughout his residence in, Riverside he has made many stanch friends and occupies in the community an honored place fully justified by his manly characteristics. In all matters pertaining to the welfare of the city he maintains an enthusiastic interest accompanied by practical assistance.
