Jesse first became aware of HeadCount after registering to vote at the HeadCount table during a 2008 music festival in Ohio. He immediately became interested in the organization after viewing the HeadCount documentary "A Call to Action" and hearing Bob Weir say, "If every Deadhead in the state of Florida would have voted on Election Day in 2000, we would be living in a very different world...Think about it." Jesse did think about it and immediately began volunteering at local shows to help drive voter registration, including serving as a team captain on the fan-to-fan phone campaign. Jesse currently resides in Ohio where he earned his B.A. in Psychology from Ohio University. His interests include reading, traveling, nature, playing guitar and listening to the music of the Grateful Dead. Jesse would love to know "What's Your Issue?"
