Aspiring to play college athletics, Jesse received scholarships to be a member of both the football and baseball teams. After going through Rush, he knew Gamma Theta was the house for him and it has not been a mistake. During his time with Gamma Theta, he was Vice President for his pledge class of 1995, Rush Chairman ’96-97 & President “97-98.

Jesse has done his best to be involved with Gamma Theta and Baker U over the past 20 years, having received alumni of the year in 2001.

In 2002, Jesse had a busy year getting married and starting his MBA studies through Baker’s Overland Park campus, graduating in 2004. He’s been a resident of Olathe, KS since 2002, and has three beautiful daughters, Ainsley 13, Brynn 11 & Brooke 10, who keep him on the go. You will see him running his girls to either violin lessons, acting classes, church youthgroup, Basketball, volleyball and even coaching two softball teams. When he finds the time, he will spend weekends at his family lake house fishing(not catching), boating and teaching his girls to ski, playing golf and staying active outdoors. Because of his affiliation with Gamma Theta, Jesse has developed a strong group of friends who he remains very close to, to this day.
