Jesse S. Sommer ’05

Wesleyan University defines the improbable.  In turn, here am I: by day, a Paratrooper and Judge Advocate with the US Army's 82nd Airborne Division; by night, a lyricist performing in the realms of YouTube.  It was at Wesleyan that I learned how to chart my own course, that I discovered the unbounded array of possible paths, and that I developed the eager curiosity to travel them all.  I'm the protagonist in the socio-political thriller adventure-romance novel I wrote, and one day I'll narrate the story on the airwaves of WESU, Middletown, 88.1fm.  At Wesleyan University, my imagination came to life... and that's why life makes me so happy.
