He was a Navy Seal during the latter phase of the Vietnam War, followed by a career in professional wrestling in the World Wrestling Federation and then a sportscaster.

Jesse has been an ardent supporter of Main Street Americans – when his state of Minnesota ran a budget surplus, he provided a sales tax rebate since the money belonged to the public. He has been a proponent for gay rights, women’s rights, opposition to trade sanctions and a leading critic of federal policies leading America into morphing into a police surveillance state.

Jesse’s has written several books including “63 Documents the Government Doesn’t’ Want you to Read” and “American Conspiracies”
