Royal Knight Spotlight: Jayson Wesley '07

Jayson Wesley '07

NYC based actor and director Jayson Wesley ˈ07, got some advice during his time at Marist High School from Br. Bob Warren: “Go to college and study drama”. Although Br. Bob saw his potential, Jayson was apprehensive about his career, and studied marketing at Saint Peter's University instead. However, after graduating and landing jobs in the sales world, Jayson found success but not passion in his line of work. Taking a leap of faith, he immersed himself in the art scene around him, devoting his time to acting and directing. Now a full-time actor, Jayson has paved a way for himself, starring in numerous film, commercial, and TV roles. You may recognize him from Emmy Award winning 'The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel', NBC's 'The Blacklist', CBS's 'FBI', CBS's 'Madame Secretary, Netflix's 'Iron Fist', and the Nectar Sleep commercial 'Make America Sleep Again,' which is nominated for a Webby Award. Congratulations on your nomination, we'll be sure to put in our votes! You can find Jayson on Instagram, @iamjayson_wesley.
