About Jesse

Hi, my name is Jesse, and Sigma Star Systems is my baby, though I've worked at SportsEngine since October 2017 (when BracketPal was acquired by them).

Here's some stuff about me:

I have a bachelor's degree in computer science from the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee and have been programming since 1997. I've been married since 2007 and I'm a father as of September 2012. I am also an avid beach volleyball player, PC gamer, board gamer, and I dabble in board game design. I also have a history of music composition, though it's been nearly 2 decades since I last wrote music.
