Camp Activities Director
Jesse was born and raised in Verona, New Jersey, where he was first introduced to Frost Valley YMCA as a family camper in 1994. Over 20 years later, Frost Valley is still a vital part of Jesse’s life after playing a crucial role in his mental and physical growth through his adolescence and young adult life. Jesse is a graduate of SUNY Potsdam where he earned his B.A. in Psychology and Wilderness Education. After spending several summers working for Frost Valley’s Adventure Village as a trip leader, Jesse accepted a year round position at a YMCA in Michigan to develop his leadership skills. He is very excited to be returning to Frost Valley after working in other Youth Development Roles in order to give him a more versatile outlook on how best to help campers grow. He joined the Director Team in February 2019 as the New Activities Director, and he could not be more excited to be part of the team that is dedicated to bringing kids of all backgrounds to camp, and giving them the summer experience that will help them grow and go into the next school year ready to face any challenge they might face.
