My name is Jessica Kleese. From what my family and relatives tell me, Kleese is German and we descend from there. It would be neat to find out who all I am related to, and if Kleese is somehow related to Klees. So far live gotten as far as James Gambal Kleese's parents Frederick Kleese and Anne Marie or Anna Marie Schmidt, I'm not sure of the spelling of her name. Other Kleese named relatives of mine are Lee Frederick Kleese, Gene David Kleese, Bryan Kleese, and Anthony Kleese.
