Thereafter, BoJesse enjoyed a two year overhead producer arrangement, developing and packaging film content for veteran producers Alan Riche & Tony Ludwig at Eagle Cove Entertainment who’s first look deal was at Warner Bros. After 911, BoJesse put his filmmaking career on hold, shifted his focus in 2001, and launched his nightlife entertainment marketing company BJC Events, Inc. Since 1988, BoJesse has been a staple of Hollywood nightlife, forging his path as an industry leader, cultivating relationships, building his BJC Events, Inc. brand, and growing his business well into 2015. BJC Events, Inc. is a full service event marketing company that produces unforgettable experiences for clientele through lifestyle, special events and nightlife programs.   Leveraging unparalleled entertainment industry relationships and access to the most exclusive venues, BJC has created events that are the pinnacle of where to “see and be seen”.

BoJesse lives in southern California by the ocean and is a dedicated husband, father and surfer. Although BoJesse has enjoyed the success of BJC Events, Inc. he has always desired to return to his acting roots when the timing was right. In 2012, BoJesse committed, got organized, and threw himself into Sandy Marshall’s renowned advanced Meisner acting class to re-connect with himself, as well as refine his craftsmanship as a truthful actor. Soon after, BoJesse was inspired to share this technique, and created a weekly acting collective where he currently directs weekly workshops at The Zephyr, The Complex, Theatre Asylum, and Elephant Theatre, entitled ‘Truth Be Told’, as well as private coaching on set and in studio.   BoJesse coaches with an emphasis on moment to moment truth, utilizing Stanislavski's ‘building a character’ components in the preparation leading up to the moment, along with Meisner’s ‘repetition exercises’ in the moment. Previously, BoJesse personally trained with legendary acting coach Stella Adler at prestigious The Stella Adler Conservatory Theatre, while being mentored and privately coached by two time academy award winner, actress Shelley Winters at The Actors Studio West from 1988-1990, studying various method techniques. After years of being away from the film and television industry, BoJesse was finally ready to return to his original passion of acting/filmmaking in 2013, realigning himself with former talent manager David Fleming at Mosaic, and is excited to work with like-minded creative forces.   Over the course of 2014, BoJesse forged an impressive and proactive return to acting. He co-starred in the independent films, as a corrupt LA cop in ‘The Human’ directed by Jesse Gordon, a compassionate NY cop in ‘Endless’ directed by Scott Beardslee, a deranged serial killer in ‘No Escape’ directed by Todd Jeffrey, as well as the Director of the FBI in the re creation of ‘Point Break directed by Ericson Core, distributed by Warner Bros. All referenced films to be released in 2015. As a filmmaker, BoJesse is also attached to direct the psychological thriller 'Method To Madness', and the emotional feel good drama 'Good-time Charlie'. BoJesse is always seeking out inspiring new material to develop as an actor/producer/director. The name BoJesse is his Fathers creation: ‘Bo’ after the legendary blues guitarist Bo Diddley and ‘Jesse’ after the infamous cowboy outlaw Jesse James (all one word and capitol J. BoJesse - An outlaw with rhythm). Stay tuned...
