Sergeant Jesse L. Maple of West Lafayette had been
awarded the Purple Heart and Medal of Honor with
“V” device for actions he took in Vietnam. On Nov.
23, 1967 while working as a radio-telephone operator,
then Specialist Four Maple’s platoon came under fi re
from an enemy machine gun nest. According to the
citation, “Specialist Maple, without regard for his own
safety, left his secured position and advanced toward
the enemy despite intense hostile fi re. Fearlessly ex-
posing himself several times, he threw hand grenades
into the enemy area and destroyed their machine gun
position.” Th e extent of Sergeant Maple’s injuries was
not disclosed, but he had since returned to active duty.
Maple was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Jesse Maple of West
Lafayette Route 1 and graduated from Ridgewood
High School in 1965.
COSHOCTON – By the time she was in fourth grade, Tana
Fischer knew she wanted to be a nurse.
“I was committed to the idea of leading a life of service
and knew upon graduation from River View High
School in 2001 that my short-term goal was to become
an LPN,” said Fischer.
She met her short-term goal at Mid-East Career Center
in Zanesville where she earned her LPN. Afterward,
she returned to her hometown and started working
midnights at a local rehabilitation facility. It was there
that Fischer met her husband Jesse, also a River View
High School graduate and a local funeral director in a
family-owned business, and the two soon began dating.
Th ey married in 2005.
“While sometimes we joke about the strange way we
met, we were both in our element and God brought us
together through our calling,” she said. “We feel like this
is important to share because you’re always hearing,
you can never fi nd anyone in Coshocton. We’re proof
that yes, you can.”
After the couple had their fi rst son, Logan, in 2006,
Fischer decided to return to school to become an RN.
She attended COTC Coshocton Campus and graduated
“Nursing school with a toddler was a challenge to say
the least,” she said. “But I was thankfully able to take
some of my classes at COTC’s Coshocton Campus with a
lot of family support.”
As winter fades and spring begins,
a beautiful life 7 years ago came to
an end. In our hearts is a memory
that will always be kept, of the one we
loved and we will never forget.
