One day Jesse Ross decided to apply his ample skills at fundraising for nonprofit and other organizations to a few projects of his own choosing. He set no maximum goal, no limit. The result was $200,000 and counting going toward the community projects he chose to support. No surprise that among the causes he supports is relief for the unhoused/homeless. Jesse spent a year of his youth homeless and he shares his experience with us.
Jesse has developed his core values of integrity, transparency and relationships and uses that foundation to make what others might doubt come to pass. Those values certainly played a role in his being admitted into an MBA program even though he had not actually completed his undergraduate studies.
Jesse Ross is a diversity, equity, and inclusion consultant, executive coach, and international speaker who has delivered over 400 speaking engagements.
