Lessers celebrate 65 years of marriage


Ernest and Jacqueline Lesser celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary July 26, 2007, with dinner and overnight stay at Jarrett Farm Resort.

The couple was married July 26, 1942, in Las Vegas, Nev.

They were blessed with two children; a daughter born in 1945, and a son born in 1951.

The family of four (all California natives) moved to Tulsa from Bell, Calif. in 1953 with Mr. Lesser’s employer, Santa Fe Engineering and Equipment Company.

They resided in Tulsa until 1990, when they moved to Claremore, where they continue to live.

Their daughter, Rosalie Brooks, resides in Morgantown, W.Va. Their son, Phillip E.L., and wife, Lorrie, live in Tulsa with their 21-year-old twins, Jessica and Ryan Lesser.
