Jay Jay Nesheim

I joined ESPN in April of 2011 and am currently Senior Director, Communications, ESPN Films and Original Content. I grew up in the Big Apple and graduated from Siena College. I came to ESPN by way of the bunny head having worked for years at Playboy Enterprises as VP, Communications. I have also held senior communications positions at MTV and AOL. I have always been a huge sports fan so I feel lucky to be part of the ESPN family, and I will always remain a passionate Jets/Yankees fan. I also wish there was more singing in sports…why does soccer get all of the sing-along songs?!
