Cooper Grieves Dead Son

6 January 2005 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Actor Chris Cooper was in mourning yesterday following the death of his 17-year-old son Jesse from causes relating to cerebral palsy. Cooper and his offspring's actress mother Marianne Leone have been tireless advocates for special needs kids in the Boston area of Massachusetts since moving there in 1994, believing the state had more progressive educational opportunities for children with cerebral palsy.
