Wow: Jesse Morris: Sunday Morning Coming Down. 

Apparently, the young man just recently committed suicide.

Reddit: “Seems like this man would have brought more joy to people than most of us could dream of, RIP to this fine man right here.”

    I remember this guy and his voice! He will definitely be missed by BART and Muni commuters.

    I frequent the 24th street BART station where Jesse (though I never knew his name) would often be playing. I was always happy to see/hear him – even though I never gave him more than a smile and sometimes a few dollars, I really enjoyed his heartfelt full-throttle music as I rushed to catch a train. I feel very sad about his death.
