Jesse came to the Spectrum Works program through West New York High School. While working with Green Distribution, a Spectrum Works partner company, Jesse gained the needed experience in a work-based setting as well as increasing his social interactions with his peers, job coaches, and Green employees.
Jesse has a mild nature, so it is surprising to learn that he is an avid fan of WWE wrestling. He also likes the ability, with his newly found paid employment, to purchase video games, go to movies and exercise. Since Jesse now uses Access Link for transportation to work, he has gained an added feeling of independence.
Carmen, a Green Distribution employee, says that “Jesse is responsible, has a great attitude, works diligently, and is all around ‘a good kid’. Everyone loves Jesse.”
