Jesse was born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland where he enjoyed football, lacrosse, and good seafood. He moved to Orlando, Florida in 1997 and was quick to call Central Florida home. He received his Bachelor's degree in 2007 from the University of Central Florida, majoring in legal studies and minoring in criminal justice.
In 2007, Jesse began working for Van Dingenen Law as a paralegal. In 2010, Jesse decided to attend law school in the evenings while working full time. He graduated with honors and received his Juris Doctorate from Florida A&M University College of Law in 2014.
Since 2007, Jesse’s sole career focus has been helping Florida’s injured workers. As a senior paralegal at Van Dingenen Law, he quickly learned the workers’ compensation system and developed a passion for helping injured workers and their families. In 2009, Jesse assisted Mr. Van Dingenen in obtaining a $76.6 million jury verdict for a young construction worker that was paralyzed on the job.
Jesse now proudly represents injured workers in their workers’ compensation claims. He is a proud member of the Workers' Compensation Section of the Florida Bar, the Florida Workers' Advocates, and the Judge William Wieland Inn of Court.
