Jesse Poriz came to Lethbridge College after a lengthy career in the oil and gas industry. He was looking for work closer to home and for a career that could support his family, and chose the Business Administration – Accounting program. His mathematical and analysis skills learned from his earlier career as a drilling fluids consultant made the choice simple. After graduating from Lethbridge College, he would like to continue his studies and eventually end up working as a Chartered Professional Accountant.
Jesse has been an active volunteer in the community in organizations ranging from Chinook Regional Hospital to Streets Alive. He enjoys spending time with his wife and children, whether they are playing video games or camping and spending time outdoors. He looks forward to serving as the student representative on the Board of Governors.
