In 2004 he received a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago where he specialized in highly detailed figurative sculpture. During this period he found employment at the International Museum of Surgical Science as curator of the Anatomy in the Gallery exhibit: A rotating exhibit of medically themed, contemporary artwork. Upon graduating from SAIC, Jesse was recruited into the Maxillofacial Prosthetic Technician training program at the Bronx Veterans Administration Medical Center in conjunction with Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in New York where he was board certified in the practice of anaplastology.
