Jesse was born and raised in Tacoma, Washington. He started going to youth group at the end of middle school and it really started to take hold in high school. After being a youth leader for over 13 years (give or take) and being in the ARMY for 9 years, he felt the call of God on his life to become a pastor. He studied at Multnomah University and graduated with a double major; Bible and Theology and Youth Ministry. He is married to a beautifully talented wife and has three boys who definitely keep him busy. Jesse is doing everything he can to become a runner, and in his spare time (haha), Jesse loves to go to movies and meet new people.
