Early life

Jesso grew up in a northern suburb of Chicago. As a youngster he wrote his own songs and also performed on stage in various theatres across Chicago. In later life, he studied songwriting at the Clive Davis Institute in New York.


Jesso has written for many artists including HRVY, The Backstreet Boys and AJ Mitchell.

In 2016, he co-wrote the Ricky Martin song "Vente Pa' Ca" featuring Maluma, which was nominated for Best Song at the 2017 Latin Grammy Awards. It lost out to "Despacito".
