Curiosity is what fuels Jesse on his path through life. He is ever seeking new connections, engaging opportunities, greater knowledge and experience. He keeps active physically, through sports such as ultimate frisbee, cycling, canoeing, and rock climbing; and cerebrally, through language acquisition & instruction, strategy games, and reading. This combination of the physical and the mental is fodder for actualizing self and community – and Jesse finds it so fulfilling to share and learn from those in that community.
Jesse has been tasked with directing McKenzie College’s international partnerships and language education programming, which fundamentally involves growing the visibility of Moncton on the world stage, and helping newcomers integrate. For the Maritimes to grow, we need to work together to trumpet all the beauty and opportunity that can be found here, and it is a top priority for Jesse to help actualize the potential of those who answer the call.
