Jesse was 10 years old when his mother bought him his first pair of drumsticks, and he hasn't put them down since.
Soon after he would take lessons from various professional drummers , who helped him understand the pulse of music. At the early age of 14 years old, Jesse was playing with different Rock Bands, Funk Bands and Blues Bands in and around the city of St. Louis.
These showcase bands, would be his ticket to sharing the stage and opening up for bands such as "The Stylistics", "The Ohio Players", "Chris Isaak", and "Eddie Money" to name a few.
Jesse has now lived on Oahu for the past 30 years, and performed with top local performers and bands such as,
Ginai Hill, Night Train, and Bobby Thursby.
Jesse's new passion is teaching, and has spend the last 5 years helping students learn how to play drums and to feel that pulse!
