Registration number 20150316G
This certifies that the heraldic arms of John Jesse Dean Crook are registered and described by the blazon below
The field and bordure tinctures (Azure and Gules) are representative of John Jesse Crook's homeland of choice (United States of America) and of his birth (England). The bend wavy serves two purposes in the design. The first is a heraldic inference to his surname (one meaning of crook: "a bend in a river".) The second represents his travel from England by boat to reach his new home. The three weavers spindles represent his lifelong career working in the cloth mills in New Bedford, Mass., as well as his family's history of working in the mills in Lancashire, England. The crest is inspired by a Canadian military badge and honors John Jesse's service as an infantryman with the Canadian Expeditionary Forces during World War I. The motto reflects the tenacity, even in the face of adversity, that he showed throughout his life.
