Jesse’s political bona fides come from his tenure as an elected official, including four-terms in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives, as well as his experience as a campaign manager and political operative. He earned his bachelor’s degree in political science from Washington and Jefferson College and his law degree from Duquesne University School of Law.
In addition to his experience on the campaign trail, Jesse is a prolific writer, designer, web designer, and content creator. He was an early adopter of using social media and branding in political campaigns, earning national attention for his approach.
Jesse has hard-won experience with taking on big-money special interests and how those battles can impact not only a political candidate but their life after the campaign ends. Although the journey has been bumpy at times, his love of politics and helping exceptional people make a difference is stronger than ever.
Jesse’s colleagues in the Legislature called him “The Bulldog” for his fire and passion. When Jesse is on your team, you have a brother-in-arms who will be by your side until the job is done.
