Jesse has over 10 years experience hand-crafting soda and previously owned a craft soda company in Forest lake, mn called whistler soda.
he is passionate about re-creating soda flavors similar to those he drank as a kid, when his mom would bring home a mixed 6 pack of soda and he got to pick one per week. It was such a treat and He saved his for sunday to enjoy while watching football.
after selling Whistler (and regretting it instantly), jesse returned to his previous career as an assistant principal at a local middle school. although he loved serving students, parents, and teachers—he missed the creative outlet that crafting sodas provided him, delivering total happiness to customers, and being part of the twin cities craft beverage industry.
“There’s something so great about watching families stop by our store to mix and match sodas,” says Jesse. “its all smiles and excitement. it reminds me of being a kid—and im very grateful to be part of it!”
Jesse heads up Northern Soda’s operations and is responsible for mixing, carbonating, and canning all of northern’s sodas.
