Jesse Helling originally hails from Dubuque, Iowa, where his parents still reside.

Currently, Helling serves as Assistant Opinions Editor for The Daily Iowan, and has, in the past, worked as an editorial writer and news reporter for the DI, and at an Iowa City radio station as a news reporter. This, along with coursework at the UI, constitutes his experience in the field of journalism.

Whether or not Helling’s final career path will be paved in this field remains to be seen. At the moment, he is actively seeking employment with the U.S. Department of State as a Foreign Service officer. Eventually he hopes to return to the university world as a professor of international relations.
