Life Story:

Jesse was born and raised in Burlington on "Rude" food and can recite the movie Wayne's World, word for word. 

On a whim, Jesse booked a trip to Whistler, for the first week of March 2015. As soon as he arrived in the village, he knew that this was what he was looking for. Despite the bad snow year, Jesse knew that if it dumped here, it would be unfathomable. After a week of shredding, partying, making friends and getting the lay of the land, Jesse flew back home. 6 months later Jesse dropped everything and moved to Whistler, with no job and nowhere to live. Jesse managed to score a house as soon as he arrived in Whistler, and a sweet ass job a year later.
