Jesse began rock climbing in 2002 while in college in the southeast. Following graduation and wanting to climb in larger and colder environments, he maxed out his credit card on ice and ski gear before moving to Montana where he learned to climb in the mountains through mistakes and luck. He’s since climbed and skied in a number of countries and across the US.
Currently based in western Colorado, Jesse guides mostly in CO, UT, WA, and AK throughout the year. Known for his calm demeanor and terrible wit, he’s a fun person to learn from or spend the day going after a climbing objective.
A little-known secret is that Jesse is a strong all-around outdoor athlete, you would never know because he wouldn’t brag- so we’ll do it for him, but don’t let him serve you up too many days of humble pie! He is pursuing IFMGA certification.
