About Jesse


Jesse Rosen is a writer-director, actor and producer who hails from Freehold, NJ — home of the Boss. His interest in film can be traced back to the 8mm video camera he wielded at the tender age of 12. After graduating from Emerson College with a B.F.A. in writing, Jesse wrote, directed and accidentally starred in his first feature film, “The Art of Being Straight,” which was released theatrically and on DVD via Regent Releasing. The film received positive reviews in the NY Times, Variety, Campus Circle, etc., and won several awards. His second feature as writer-director, “The Jazz Funeral,” starred James Morrison (“24,”), Bobby Campo (“The Final Destination 3D”), Maiara Walsh (“Switched at Birth”) and Dee Wallace (“E.T.”). The film was released on VOD in 2017, after winning a Grand Jury Prize at Dances With Films and the Big Bear Int’l Film Festival. He has two feature films currently in development, slated to shoot in late 2017 & 2018.
