Hi I'm Jesse

I'm a true Alaskan, a fisherman, a musician, an athlete, a studying chemical engineer, I speak Spanish, and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Alaska, where I learned to fish, work, and enjoy the outdoors. I love to rock climb, rappel, canoe, kayak, snow machine, and snowboard. I am the fourth of six children, and I am currently studying to be a chemical engineer. I also love being busy and staying super active with sports, activities, and music in school. I play football, soccer, wrestling, and track. I'm a musician - I play the piano, the drums, and I love singing and dancing!

Why I am a Mormon

I'm a Mormon simply because I know that Jesus Christ is my Savior and that this is His true restored Church. I read the Book of Mormon, pondered it in my heart, and prayed sincerely to find out if it was true. I felt the Holy Ghost confirm its truthfulness through an overwhelming peace and surety. I'm a very logical guy, and things have to make sense to me. It makes sense to me that God, as a loving father, wants to talk to His children and will answer their prayers. It makes sense that He wants us to be happy and return to live with Him. Being a Mormon makes me happy and gives me a sense of purpose. More than anything, it makes me a better person.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by sharing it with others. As a missionary, I had the opportunity to touch peoples' lives and see them completely change. I participate in the choir (I even played the organ for a while!), and as a missionary I taught people of all ages and all backgrounds. I love the joy that it brings into their lives (and mine). I strive to live in a manner befitting a disciple of Jesus Christ and do my best to live as He would and share His gospel as He would. I do my best to maintain high standards and integrity in school as well as in the workplace.
