Honorary Hawkeye of the 2015 Courage Ride
Jessie graduated from Eagle Grove High School in 1992. He wrestled at the University of Iowa and in 1997 was the starter at 118 pounds. That year he won the National Championship and was part of the Hall of Fame team that still holds the record for the most team points scored. Coach Dan Gable nicknamed him the strongest man in the world after winning that year and Jessie is still recognized today by that nickname.
Jessie works for the state of Iowa. He is married with two, very active children. Jessie is committed to the Courage Ride foundation because of the battle that Kelly and Chad Bender went through and the fight that those still go through each day.
