Jesse’s achievements are impressive and diverse.  He’s performed with world-renowned artists, including: Tower of Power, Frankie Valli, Arturo Sandoval, James Brown, Andrae Crouch, and Stevie Wonder, to name a few.


He authored and self-published an autobiography, trumpeter’s guide, fiction novels, self-help Christian books, and a book of Inspirational poetry.  His latest, “Raising Doctors on a Patient’s Salary,” is considered his best literary work to date. 


In 2009, Jesse received a regional EMMY award, for “On Camera Talent – Performer/Narrator.”


Jesse has been honored to perform for three United States presidents.  He’s also performed at professional sporting events across the country; most notably performing the National Anthem during the 2001 World Series, for which he received a World Series championship ring from the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Dr. McGuire earned his Doctor of Ministry (Summa Cum Laude) degree from Freedom Bible College and Seminary.  A resident of Phoenix, Arizona, Jesse McGuire is the President of PowerTrump, Inc.
