Born and raised in the Twin Cities area, Jesse joined the Gardenworld team in the fall of 2003. Early on he split time between warehouse and sales before moving to a full-time account managing position in 2005. He currently manages Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota and a large portion of Wisconsin. He has a strong passion for plants and outdoors both professionally and recreationally. His current favorite plant is Chelone “Tiny Tortuga” because of its compact growth habit and mid-late summer blooms. Outside of work Jesse enjoys trialing new and unusual plants in his personal gardens as well as camping and fishing with his wife and two daughters.
