He is a Math TA and the Cycling Coach. The cycling team practices in West Rock and Races throughout CT.

Jesse is currently attending the University of New Haven, working towards a BS in Mechanical Engineering. When not working or studying he’s trying to get outside: rock climbing, mountain biking, backpacking or just general outdoor things.
