Before joining BLG, Jesse completed his Bachelor of Music at Acadia University. During his studies, he earned academic recognition as a two-time All-Canadian for his achievements while competing on the Varsity Swim team. He also served his community by coaching his local youth swim team during the summer. In law school, Jesse has earned the Dean’s course prize in Class Actions and competed as a member of the Bowman Tax Moot team. He looks forward to participating in Thompson Rivers University’s international exchange program in France this upcoming semester.
