About

When I launched Virgins On Fire in June of 2020, I was driven by the desire to fulfill my unrealized creative potential and take control of my financial future.

In that spirit, Virgins On Fire encapsulates the idea of becoming the person you want to be, rather than the version of yourself others might expect.

My mission: to BE a Virgin On Fire.

A Jersey boy with a city attitude, Jesse has fulfilled many roles throughout his career - although few measure up to his latest: company founder and candlemaker. 

Leveraging his degree in Political Science and Communications from The George Washington University, Jesse has acted as a fundraiser for one of the best art & design colleges in the country, administrator for the largest community-based food pantry in NYC, and community organizer on a winning presidential campaign -- proving that he commits to a cause, and sees it through.

Jesse now lives in Brooklyn, NY with his partner and their rescue-dog son, Rockwell "Rocky" Rufferman.
