Jesse was a rookie sensation last season on American Ninja Warrior. She broke the record of the first rookie female to qualify for the Las Vegas Finals and solidified her nickname, “Flex Labreck.” Her tenacity and love of the sport has inspired ninjas of all ages!
Jesse attended the University of Maine where she got her degree in Elementary Education and developed her athletic skills on the field becoming a track star. Jesse is the General Manager of Course Operations at the Ultimate Ninjas Naperville location. With her background in Elementary Ed and love for the sport, Ultimate Ninjas is the perfect place for Jesse to teach future American Ninja Warriors via obstacle course racing, or OCR!
She has competed on Team Ninja Warrior as captain of “Labreckfast Club” as well as on the Skills and All Stars episode of American Ninja Warrior.
Jesse resides in Naperville and is an avid rock climber and hiker. She is an advocate for cerebral palsy awareness through her relationship with a 20 year old woman, whom she cared for while living in Massachusetts.
