Jesse Cornett

Jesse's career in Oregon politics spans more than a decade. In that time, he’s worked on higher education financing, campaign finance reform, advocated for veterans and has campaigned for countless Democrats. Jesse lives in the Lents neighborhood with his wife Molly, a dog, cat and several hens. In his free time Jesse can be found at home swinging a hammer in an attempt to convert his basement into living space, browsing the pages of a nearly complete set of Oregon Blue Books, including the original 1911 edition, or working in his garden.
