    One thing that's never been stated clearly, as far as I can tell, is whether anyone besides Parker remembers Jesse being present at the Model U.N. Security Council meeting and, if so, whether anyone else noticed what time he left. And does after 2:00 A.M. mean just after 2:00 or potentially hours after 2:00?

    I still think a fall into the Chicago River is the best bet, but a concealed death from alcohol poisoning or from some kind of hazing at the Sheraton wouldn't surprise me, either.

    Families gather for 11th annual missing persons event
    June 10 2018
    Jesse, 19 at the time, was attending a Model United Nations conference with University of Missouri-Kansas City when he disappeared on the final day, Nov. 21, 2006. By the time police were alerted, most students were already on their way home, and the hotel rooms had been cleaned.

    The Chicago Police Department hasn't had a lead on the whereabouts of their son since his disappearance, Donald Ross said.

    "He had several things — jobs, school, friends — going on, so he had no reason not to want to come home," he said, glancing at his son's missing person flyer on the table. "We feel he just fell into a bad situation."

    ""I think the common person, the ordinary person, doesn't comprehend how serious something like this is," Donald said. "Maybe they view families like ours as being unique, but we're like everyone else. We were going along our way, living our lives, enjoying our lives and then boom, it hits you. I think it can happen to anyone, anywhere, any time. So, it's really important people know about what's going on and learn as much as they can about what's happening."

    "He was prone to poor judgement every once in a while"
    Documentary shines new light on UMKC student’s mysterious disappearance in 2006
    When I Last Saw Jesse” tells the story of the Belton native's disappearance.

    “He’s really, he’s just a regular, young adult. He’s got his dreams. He has his ambitions, and he is working hard," filmmaker Brian Rose said. "But he also likes to have fun and in so doing, he you know makes mistakes and sometimes makes poor decisions like we all do. We all turn out OK, and for whatever reason, there was a confluence of events that happened that night that resulted in Jesse not coming home and not being OK."

    Ross went to Chicago in November 2006 for a model United Nations conference. He was last seen on video leaving the hotel conference room around 2:30 a.m.

    “The last video we have of Jesse was outside the Sheraton. But once he went back in the hotel, there was no more video," said Sgt. Tony Rizzo with the Chicago Police Department.

    Several hours would pass before anyone realized Jesse was missing.

    “I definitely have a lot of sympathy for the Chicago police on this case because they were handed an investigator’s nightmare. You have this individual go missing on the last day of a conference, and the conference wraps up before he’s even reported missing," Rose said. "You have 1,200 students in attendance. There’s 1,200 potential witnesses, very few of whom are local to the area, who all immediately scatter by train, by plane by automobile, and it's Thanksgiving weekend."

    Don Ross traveled to Chicago soon after his son was reported missing.

    “We were determined to find him, but we felt like the wind come along and swept us up and we were totally out of control,” he said.

    Along with prompting new tips, Brian hopes that the documentary will help people remember the young man with a promising future.

    “If nothing else, my hope would be that Jesse himself is not forgotten," Ross said."
