Read more about Jesse:

I am originally from California, but a Midwest boy at heart. I love the big city look with the small town feel. I am 26 years old and am currently working on my PhD at Saint Louis University. I teach math at both Southwestern Illinois College and Harris-Stowe State University. I have lived in Saint Louis now for 4 years. I graduated college from UC Irvine in 2007 and got my Master’s degree from Saint Louis University in 2009.

WHY I LOVE SAINT LOUIS:
I love all the festivals that go on throughout the year, especially the Big Muddy Blues Fest. I love all the parades, especially the Mardi Gras parade. The people are great. The thin crust pizza is awesome. The Cardinals rock! I have never seen a hockey game until I came out to Saint Louis (Go Blues). I got to see a true rock n roll legend, Chuck Berry, who still knows how to rock. The Fox Theatre is amazing, especially when acts such as Bob Dylan and Niel Young come to town. I am excited about the Peabody Opera House opening. And I love all the people I have met so far.
