Coach Jesse Cargill started her training at Pride soon after enrolling her own children at the ages of 4 and 6, both of which have earned their Black Belts. She earned her Black Belt under Mr. Epps in 2009, and was promoted to 2nd Degree Black Belt in 2011.
Coach Jesse is the Program Director for Pride Mixed Martial Arts. With an extensive background working with children and teens, Coach Jesse lives out her passion of teaching kids on a daily basis. Prior to teaching at Pride, Coach Jesse operated a successful home daycare for eight years. Expanding her life's mission, she used her love and knowledge of horses to help troubled teens at a boy's home using equine therapy.
Coach Jesse is truly an inspiration. She became the 2012 IKF Kickboxing Women’s Super Light Weight World Champion at age 38! No easy feat, considering most of her opponents were in their twenties!
Her drive and passion to empower women has led her to develop a women's personal protection program called Fierce and Fearless! Teaching women rape preventing an self defense through workshops and seminars.
