He was the first-ever three-time captain in Washington State school history -- elected by his teammates as a captain his sophomore, junior and senior seasons.

Following his college playing career, Gesser played in the NFL with the Tennessee Titans from 2003-2005. In 2005 and `06, he played with the Calgary Stampeders in the Canadian Football League. Gesser also spent time playing with the Utah Blaze of the Arena Football League from 2005-08.

Prior to beginning his college coaching career, Gesser coached high school football in the state of Washington for five years. He began as the offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach at Federal Way High School in Federal Way, Wash., for the 2006 season. He moved to Franklin Pierce High School in Tacoma, Wash., for two seasons in 2007 and `08 -- once again serving as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach. His final two seasons as a high school coach were spent at Eastside Catholic High School in Sammamish, Wash., where he was the head coach, offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach for the 2009 and `10 seasons.

In 2008, Gesser founded Jason Gesser Elite Sports. He was involved in hosting Nike Northwest Elite Football Camps in 2009, `10 and `11, and also conducted multiple quarterback skill camps in the northwest during that same time period.
