Jesse was born in a small farming community in Northern Alberta and moved to Mission, British Columbia when he was young. Upon completion of high school, Jesse started a carpentry apprenticeship and spent many years working with various general contractors in residential and commercial construction. During this time, Jesse completed his Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of the Fraser Valley, majoring in philosophy and minoring in economics. Upon graduation from UFV, Jesse returned to Alberta and completed his Juris Doctor at the University of Alberta in 2017.
Jesse completed his articles with Baker Newby and joined their team of solicitors following his call to the bar in May of 2018.
From his time in construction, Jesse developed a passion for small business development, real property law, and in particular real estate development. Jesse works with both large and small developers on all aspects of the real estate development process and supports his clients throughout the various milestones of each development project. From initial business structuring matters, to financing for the acquisition of property, to subdivision, to navigating the Real Estate Development Marketing Act and drafting disclosure statements, Jesse is there to help guide his clients every step of the way until the ultimate sale or lease of the project.
Outside of the office, you can find Jesse behind a boat, at the golf course or on the soccer field. When Jesse is not playing soccer himself, he is supporting his favourite team Liverpool FC.
