Jesse was born and raised in the Midwest. Growing up in a ministry home, he was surrounded by biblical preaching and teaching and came to know Christ as his Savior at an early age. He met his wife, Mary Faith, when he moved to Wisconsin to complete both his undergraduate and graduate degrees. They married in 2010, and have two children. The Williams have both served on staff at BCM since 2011, and Jesse enjoys his work as Director of Advancement, which allows him the opportunity to serve young people and their families as they seek God’s direction for their lives. He also enjoys teaching a men’s Bible study in the Foundations Fellowship at Falls Baptist Church, seeing men come to know Christ and take steps of growth.
In high school and college, Jesse worked for a painting company, and did farm and landscape jobs in his hometown. He is grateful to his parents and bosses for exemplifying and instilling in him a strong work ethic at an early age. Growing up, Jesse was privileged to travel throughout most of the 50 states, and has traveled to several foreign countries as well. He has enjoyed participating in a number of college vocal group recordings.
Jesse enjoys a good history read, working outside on the grounds, a rousing game of Ticket to Ride, and spending time with friends and family. Spending much time outdoors as a young person, he enjoyed hunting, and has a large black bear trophy on his wall. Jesse knows all the good local coffee shops around, and greatly enjoys exploring the great Milwaukee restaurants.
