Jesse is an Oregon native who grew up in Canby and did his undergraduate studies at Portland State University. He and his wife moved across the country to Charleston, SC so he could complete the Physician Assistant program at Medical University of South Carolina. While completing his education, they welcomed their first child, Emersyn, and moved back to Oregon to begin their careers and live closer to family.

Jesse joined Hope Orthopedics of Oregon in 2019 and when he isn’t helping patients, he enjoys the outdoors, nature, photography and spending time with his family.
