I don't think in an essay we have a thesis - more likely an introduction. It should address the topic of the essay, and present some general directions to "where the whole essay goes".

I think that every essay needs thesis statement to "help organize and develop the system of proper writing". The more detail about thesis statements is explained here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thesis_statement

Thesis statements help writers focus on the point and avoid going too far from the point. Thesis statements help readers easily understand the main point and follow the whole ideas.
