Jesse has been in recovery since 2013. Before getting sober, Jesse worked in the cannabis industry where he started one of the Bay Area’s first collectives. After growing it to the second largest non-profit in Northern California, it became clear to him that he needed a change of career, so he shifted his focus to helping others. Jesse went on to start a successful sober living company, as well as an internet marketplace platform for addiction recovery resources, both of which were designed to allow those in recovery to find and receive the help they need. Jesse was also instrumental in bringing the first residential detox-only facility to San Francisco in 2019. Jesse continues to remain grateful for the fact that every road in his past has led him here. He is convinced that he is here on borrowed time and that every day is an opportunity to help someone who is still suffering.
