  • Sharon breen

    Thank God YOU’RE ok! The tour bus can be replaced… YOU can’t be! What would the family DO without you?!?!?! Be safe the rest of the tour, and leave the “frying” to Colonel Sanders! lol

  • Bella

    Well I live in Tampa, FL, the “lighting capital of the world” (or so I’m told). We have severe thunderstorms like almost everyday during the spring/summer, and it’s not uncommon to see lighting strike, literally, just a few yards away. I’m pretty used to it, but I’m not gonna lie, it’s still scary as Hell.

  • Wayne

    I am glad you are ok, but after your concert at six flags and how you acted on stage in front of those young girls, well maybe someone was sending you a message!

  • Anonymous

    I’ve never seen it before, but when I was in second or third grade, lightning hit the music room that I was in. (The room is outside in this “trailer” type thing.)

  • RENATA

    I don’t know how the people can say there he’s pretty, he’s soooo ugly

  • http://twitter.com Apple Juice!!!

    Jesse is a beast! Why you suckas hatin’???

  • Samantha

    I’ve seen a lightning strick but it was far away and that was some bad luck jesse!

  • Kimberly

    Hey getting struck by lightning is a one in a million chance! Not many can say thats happened to them! Just glad Jesse and his crew is ok, a bus can be fixed, people cant always be. Stay safe jesse!

  • Kimberly

    You guys are so immature, do you really think he cares if some 12 year old girls think hes hot? Please he has better things to do, he’s writing for Toni Braxton, and even your little David Archuleta.Hes also filming a movie. He’s very talented and frankly wether or not you think hes hot is extremely irrelevant.

  • girl5

    Glad he’s okay!

  • Priscilla

    glad he’s ok
    but its not possible
    for the bus to get struck by
    lighting maybe the road
    but definatelly not the bus….
    the tires have some effect on the ground
    that makes this impossible….

  • Dani

    uhhh how can u say he’s bad luck??? he’s defintely good luck…. if he’s ok…safe… after thaaat kind of thing happening to him so close….he’s definitely lucky if he’s alife after that… don’t you think???
    \and also he’s the most gorgeous guyyy …stop comparing him .. uhhh
    love jessseeeee

  • Mandy

    Lucky guy. It’s great to see Lightning! Your hair stands up before it from the Static and you just hear a loud crash before seeing it! It was flipping fantastic when I saw one! We were all playing baseball on the school field, (it’s called rounders here, in England) it started raining, thunderstorm, since the teacher was a guy, he made us stay out since he thought it was atmospheric, and admittedly, it was just like the baseball scene from twilight! Especially since I was bored and me and a mate were flipping the bat over and over again like Jasper did. :D

    @Mandy: so your saying it’s great to see something that can fry you like an egg and then kill your butt afterwards

  • k

    woww. i live 2 hours away from Dallas and it was storming pretty hard the other day. poor guy. glad he’s ok, though.

  • Brittny

    I was at the concert & right when it ended the sky was turning literally black. We had too stay at six flags for at least 20 or 30 minutes for it to calm down. Just glad he got to finish the concert and all is well

  • bella
