He attended East Brunswick High School, but he didn’t really enjoy school. From age 10, he performed in children’s theater. Jesse had his first professional role in an off-Broadway play, “The Gathering”. Before fame, he made his first television appearance role that came in 1999 when he was 16 with a show on Fox’s Get Real (1999), but the show was canceled in 2000.
