I grew up in nearby Northfield Minnesota. After attending Northfield High I stayed close to home at Carleton College and earned a degree in physics. I went to graduate school at Yale University and researched in the group of David DeMille on a project to create ultra-cold polar molecules. After defending my thesis I soon thereafter he joined the group of John Thomas at Duke University to study the properties of ultra-cold fermionic atoms.
Jessie enjoys spending time with his family, and many outdoor-type activities, including hiking and watersports.
