Jesse moved to Spokane from a small town called Houma, Louisiana. She and her partner have a cat named Boxie and a dog named Yuki. Driven by the desire to help others, she spent the last decade in the entertainment industry raising money for charity as one of the leading indie speedrunners. Eventually, she began volunteering with an animal shelter, which sparked her love for veterinary medicine. She is currently attending school to become a licensed veterinary technician.
