A life-long involvement with theatre and film as both performer and writer began early, growing up in Hollywood, CA, where Jesse Wilson performed in plays, TV shows and commercials. A graduate of the LA High School for the Performing Arts, Jesse traveled east to attain a BFA for theatre in the prestigious Juilliard School. Remaining in New York, and later Philadelphia, he developed material for his one-man shows, performed throughout the region. His most recent production, "Face the City," written for high school and college audiences, combines visual and animation projections in a multimedia presentation of the artist's journey to find themselves in the "real world." “The Night the Moon Ate My Room!” written
and performed with music for young audiences to experience self-discovery, is created
with the support of The Kennedy Center’s Imagination Celebration and Pikes Peak
Library District. Jesse teaches theatre and music at Academy for Advanced & Creative
Learning, and The Colorado Springs Conservatory.
