In his role, Jesse led the effort to develop, implement, and evaluate a comprehensive Mental Training Program for the organization. In addition to unprecedented success at the Major League level, over 70 Astros Minor League players reached the big leagues during his tenure, a testament to the mental training processes and programs integrated throughout the player development system. Prior to working with the Astros, Jesse spent four years as the Lead Master Resilience Trainer – Performance Expert at the Comprehensive Soldier and Family Fitness (CSF2) Training Center in Honolulu, Hawaii. In his role with CSF2, Jesse provided hands-on training and self-development tools so that members of the Army family were better able to cope with adversity, perform better in stressful situations, and thrive on and off the battlefield. Jesse has his Ph.D. in Sport and Exercise Psychology and M.A. in Counseling from West Virginia University (2013), M.S. in Exercise and Sport Sciences at Ithaca College (2009) and his B.A. in Psychology (2006) from the University of California at San Diego.
