Jesse a New York native moved out to San Diego pursuing a dream in collegiate basketball in 2016. While in San Diego he reconnected with a local church, New Vision, who he had met on a mission trip back in 2015. Jesse was introduced to UYC through Brent Hyden and Nate Landis two of the pastors at New Vision and started volunteering right away. During one of UYC’s student leader trainings, Jesse felt the call to full-time ministry and started interning with both New Vision and UYC in 2017.
Jesse currently serves as a Youth Minister at New Vision Church, Area Director of Downtown and City Heights for UYC, and as an online student at Calvary Chapel Bible College. Jesse has a passion for theology and teaching and spends his free time hiking, climbing, exercising, and nerding on all things DC, Marvel, and Star Wars.
