Jesse has always loved the DC area, and moved from Virginia to the city just a few years ago. He always loved animals, but never thought about working with them until he started as a foster coordinator for the Humane Rescue Alliance in 2018. Now he can’t imagine doing anything else! Jesse spent several years at the HRA as part of the foster program, the shelter, animal control, and humane law enforcement. He feelt privileged to help animals and the people who love them, and continued to grow in his career working with animals.
During this time, Jesse realized his true passion for dogs, and he came to District Dogs to fulfill his dream of constantly being surrounded by them! When he isn’t striving to provide the best quality care for dogs in the District, he’s spoiling his 13-year old Golden Chow, Harry. Jesse also enjoys spending his free time cooking and tending to his collection of rare houseplants.
