Jesse McKeeman grew up in Indianapolis, IN. He has a BS in Computer Science from Purdue University but doesn’t use it. Instead he joined the Marine Corps, which has been way more fun than computers. He has spent the last 15 years as a Naval Aviator flying and instructing in both helicopters and airplanes.
Jesse has been CrossFitting for 7 years at various gyms across the nation and world. He has received a diverse education in the sport. Out of the 30 or so boxes he has participated in, CrossFit Purged stands head and shoulders above most. The coaching, atmosphere, and support received there reach well outside of the typical CrossFit box and connect with everyone. The reason Jesse has chosen this box over all the others is the family atmosphere where people feel comfortable in their own skin and part of each other’s lives. Jesse’s favorite WOD is Isabel. Least favorite WOD is Murph. Surfing and spearfishing take up most of Jesse’s free time. Jesse lives in north county with his three insane boy childs and is so stoked to be married to his beautiful baby mamma.
