Jesse grew up on a Christmas tree farm in southern West Virginia. At a young age, he developed an interest in storytelling, which led him to pursue a degree in Broadcast Journalism from Concord University. He went on to work as a Promotions Producer for WDBJ7 in Roanoke, VA. After nearly 5 years in TV, God opened the door for Jesse to pursue his true passion, telling stories that point people to Jesus. He started working as a Videographer with the SBCV’s media team in January 2021.
Jesse and his wife Rhian attended North Roanoke Baptist Church, where they serve in the worship and media ministries. He is guided daily by Proverbs 3:5-6, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”
