In 1994, he signed a record contract with Capitol Records imprint label, Underworld Records.
Jesse was featured on the soundtrack to the 1995 film, "Dead Presidents" on the track "Where is The Love" featuring singer Trina. The song helped push sales of the soundtrack to over 500,000 units which certified the soundtrack gold.
His popularity led to making appearances on "Showtime at the Apollo," the B.E.T. Network's "Video Soul" and "Soul Train."
Jesse has performed as a soloist for many evangelists such as Joyce Myers, Benny Hinn, Prophetess Juanita Bynum, Bishop T.D. Jakes, Kenneth Ulmer, Noel Jones and Dr. Creflo Dollar. He has also fallen on some hard times.
After his wife walked on Jesse when he was unable to provide for his family financially, he and his young daughter were homeless, sleeping in their car until his brother moved to town to help out.
After a year, Jesse was back on his feet, making a living singing in churches and at weddings. In 2012, he was a contestant on the NBC reality singing show "The Voice," but was later eliminated in the quarterfinals.
During an appearance on "The Today Show," Jesse stated that he wasn't mad or disappointed about being eliminated from "The Voice" and is thankful for the experience. These days, it appears as if Jesse is still active with his singing career.
