I am not skilled enough to concisely and adequately describe the impact Jesse Hernandez has had on my life. Although I’ve known the fun and free Jess for 4+ years, I had the truly humbling experience of Jesse wanting to talk to me for “a little while” at the LCI Congress in October 2021. That short conversation lasted 3 or more hours. Secrets were shared and true personalities were easily reveled. During that conversation, and of course something I didn’t realize at that time, Jesse gave me space to be me. That might sound crazy to some, but for me as a Type A, oldest child, people pleaser, it was something I had not encountered before. Jesse has an unmatched talent of allowing people to be. This talent allows him to ask unbiased questions with perspective most individuals wouldn’t know existed. Not only is he able to refrain from leading and telling questions, Jesse get ma to know the people he is surrounded by so well that his questions jump straight to the root causes / fears. I think my favorite part of his process is that he’s constantly asking if he’s on the right track. He is not here to tell you what you are thinking, what you are feeling, or what you should do. He wants to provide clarity and shine light on the path that best suits you. That is a skill VERY few have and even fewer desire. Jesse, you have me questionating myself every day & slowly starting to answer my own questions / own my own impact.
