Jesse Thomas has, possibly, the longest resume of all our pro athletes. He is dad to #superadvanced Jude, husband to the stellar Lauren Fleshman, CEO of Picky Bars and writes a monthly column for Triathlete Magazine. And in his spare time, he manages to burn up the Ironman race circuit.

Jesse credits 2010 as the real start of his triathlon career. He soon made his mark when he pulled off a Wildflower win as an unknown name. Six years later, and he keeps winning. While Jesse used to focus on the Half Ironman, he tempted fate and raced IM Wales in 2015, and won. He soon followed up with an IM Lanzarote win in 2016. You can find Jesse strolling around Bend, OR in his aviator sunglasses.
