Jesse has won over twenty-four ribbons competing in both amateur and professional divisions. As a child growing up in Oklahoma, the magical works of George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, and Disney all are inspirational to his art and creativity. At the age of six years old, after watching Star Wars on the week of its release in 1977, he told his father that he wanted to one day work in that creative industry. Perhaps next to the loving support of his wife, and his personal desires, his recent inspiration comes from his mother Vicki. Jesse was separated from his mother at the age of six and did not find her until days after she had passed away. Jesse discovered she had searched for him for over twenty years. She asked her brother to find Jesse and ask him if he liked to draw or paint. When asked, Jesse was in his second quarter at the Art Institutes California San Francisco. Vicki was a painter and it was her dream to one day move to San Francisco and finish her art degree she had started at a university in Kansas. So, the road travelled to make a dreams come true and follow his passions has been a journey in life. Upon graduating, Jesse hopes to provide the same positive impact in the lives of others through his work as those whom inspired him.
