Hailing from Massachusetts, Jesse came to New York in 2013 to pursue his master’s degree in Media, Culture, and Communication at NYU’s Steinhardt School. He has since honed his expertise in both the commercial and non-profit arenas. His recent experiences include writing copy for the boutique advertising startup, the Boathouse, implementing digital communications and development campaigns at International House, and supporting communications and events efforts at LEAP NYC through PR and media outreach.
Jesse brings a diverse strategic and creative skillset to Per Scholas, along with a love of mission-driven messaging, and a sincere desire to tell the world about the good work happening here. He lives in Brooklyn with his wife, where he moonlights as a singer/songwriter, penning ballads to his native New England.
