We had the opportunity to catch up with Roper, where he shared his favorite holiday memory, the Christmas treat he can’t live without and his favorite holiday song.
Kat: Do you have a favorite holiday or Christmas memory?
Jesse: My brother and I received whoopee cushions in our stockings one year when we were about 7 and 5. There was a lot of laughing that Christmas!
Kat: Favorite holiday movie?
Jesse: National Lampoons Christmas Vacation is by far the best Christmas movie.
Kat: What was your favorite gift you received as a kid?
Jesse: Whoopee cushions of course. I asked for a shark tank and a great white one year. That would’ve been the best but Santa brought me a book about sharks instead. Wha whaaaa
Kat: Favorite holiday song?
Jesse: Let it snow!!! I was fish tailing all over the Coquihalla one night during a 14 hr drive home in the snow from Edmonton and that song got me through. I’m not a Christmas music fan otherwise.
Kat: Favorite holiday treat?
Jesse: Rum and eggnog? I like those chocolate oranges too. Getting together for the big family dinner is pretty dang great!
