Jesse began competing in baseball at a very young age and continued through high school. His passion for running began in high school while competing in both track and cross country.
After high school with college ended, much like the rest of us, Jesse started a career, running fell by the way side away until 2010. Jesse was asked to participate in the Hotter than Hell bike rally. At the time he didn’t own a road bike, so like any diligent endurance athlete, the week of the ride he purchased the bike. Jesse had fun and wanted to keep it going. A couple months later he was offered an entry into the DRC half marathon. He hadn’t been running in a while but was still on a high after finishing the bike ride. He figured if he could ride that far surely he could run a half! Three weeks later he ran his first half marathon and was hooked on endurance sports. After finishing he immediately walked over and signed up for his second half.
Enter the next challenge: In 2011 he signed up for the St. Patrick’s Day sprint triathlon. Even though it was the hardest and most humbling athletic experience of his life it was one of the greatest. Since then he has competed in everything from sprints to a 70.3 in 2014. His passion for coaching began while coaching little league baseball and has grown into coaching endurance sports. He knows what it’s like being new to the sport and the struggles that come with that. As a husband, father, full time employee and athlete himself, he also understands that balancing training with your everyday life can be challenging. His mission and passion is helping new endurance athletes grow in the sport and reach their goals.
