Jesse loves to help people. Whether it’s with their computers, or at a community event, you’ll see him with a big smile on his face and always ready to lend a hand, or an ear. Jesse has been helping people with their computer problems since 2001, when he worked in the Cabrillo Tech Center as a student aid while taking classes in desktop publishing, computer information systems and business. He currently owns/operates (since 2011) a small computer repair shop down the street from Cabrillo called Computer Center Santa Cruz. CCSC offers repair for all (Mac, PC, phone) tech needs, and Jesse handles the ‘on-site’ support needs.
