Jesse’s Story of the Day

Jesse Jones sushi roll benefits local veterans


An Everett group is stepping up to help our veterans who face significant challenges after returning home from battle.  But they could use your help, too.

Sansei Seafood Restaurant and Sushi Bar in Seattle is making a sushi roll that will benefit Heartbeat, which serves wounded warriors out of Everett.

Heartbeat is a non-profit group that uses certified therapies, like scuba diving, to help vets heal after returning from battle.  But my favorite is the Back in the Saddle Warriors. Retired Lt. Colonel Matt France uses the equine-assisted therapy to help with his back injuries.

“It’s also enabled my spine, where I had in injury, to gain some symmetry back and move,” France explained.  “It kind of retrains your mind and your body to get back to what healthy was for you before you got hurt.”

So I worked with Chef Richard to come up with the roll that Sansei will sell on behalf of Heartbeat.

The roll is filled with spicy scallop, cucumber and avocado, and is topped with seared tuna.  It’s also covered with citrus wasabi mayo and eel sauce.  To top it all off, the chef sprinkles crunchy wontons on top.  It’s called the Jesse Jones Roll.

The Jesse Jones Roll is available now at Sansei in Seattle and will be sold through July 4th.  A portion of the proceeds will go to Heartbeat.

There is also a golf tournament on the 4th of July benefiting Heartbeat at Harbour Pointe Golf Club in Mukilteo.  You can download more information below.
