Appointed August 2014
Jesse is a Colorado native and has grown up in the Eagle Valley. This has given him a great appreciation for the mountain environment and a robust understanding of the integral connection between nature, culture, and the built environment. Jesse is a Land Planner and Landscape Designer with Zehren and Associates and has served as a Planning Commissioner since 2014. Areas of interest for Jesse include the Community Plan and Land Use Code Update, Highway 6 Corridor Study, and the Central Business District. He sees potential to revitalize these areas of the Town by incorporating forward thinking planning concepts and creative design solutions into the Community Plan and Land Use Code. Jesse was drawn to the Planning Commission as a way of using his knowledge of planning and design to help improve the look of the Town and give back to the community that he grew up in. When Jesse is not working you might find him fishing, rafting, hiking, biking, hunting, snowboarding or perhaps even practicing his juggling!
Member of the American Society of Landscape Architects.
Jesse has worked on a multitude of different scale projects, from small garden designs, to large scale masterplans of new ski resorts, and everything in between.
