Born stillborn, his mother prayed to God to let her son live.

Jesse's art exhibits include Colors to Life Beautiful, an exhibition inspired by Alice Walker's Color Purple at the 626 Gallery at Studio B in downtown LA's gallery row and his solo show, My Real Name is Jesus, hosted by Jermaine Jackson which was also held at 626, focusing on his life story and the inspiration behind his most versatile works.
