There isn't a photograph, but there is a description of Jesse in 1921:

"... 41 years of age, 5 feet 9 inches high, medium build, brown hair, blue eyes, tattooed on both arms and chest: a seaman ..."

Actually there is a photograph of Jesse - on his US passport application (12 Jan 1921).

Not sure what information you already have about him? Born Salem, Massachusetts 12 June 1880, father also named Jesse Richard LEE-CONWAY born Salem (according to this application).

Modified to add:
though on his marriage he says his father is Richard Francis LEE CONWAY  :-\

The marriage index says his father was Richard Francis Lee-Conway  :(
Side tracked to a friend’s very interesting Norfolk families. MORGAN, PRATT, HORNOR, SUCKLING, GLEANE etc. And in London DOWNES, du CROZ, MORGAN (same MORGANs as the Norwich lot)
