    Jesse's Bio:
    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

A Little Volunteer Work

Summer youth travel baseball teams have ended their summer seasons and it’s now onto junior high school fall baseball. My younger brother is going into 8th grade and I have the luxury of being his assistant coach until I head back to school. I helped out with his team last year and I’m fortunate enough to be able to help out again.

I really enjoy teaching these young kids the game of baseball because it has been such a major part of my life. I mean it’s one of the reasons I’m at St. Scholastica. I feel extremely blessed to be able to be a part of these youngsters’ baseball career. It is also nice being able to give back to the school I went to by doing something I love.

It’s not always easy as 11-14 year old kids can struggle with focusing on one thing for two hours. One of the parents asked me after tonight’s practice whether or not I had any desire to coach in the future. I thought about it for a second and I responded by saying I think I would have a lot of fun doing that, especially because the game of baseball means so much to me. I would love to share something of that importance with young kids in the hopes that they learn to love and appreciate the game as much as I do.

I don’t get paid for helping out but in my opinion just watching kids enjoy this game is payment in itself. Yes, it also helps my parents out because I take my brother to and from practice every night but that’s okay because I enjoy the extra time with my younger brother!
