Senior Director of Operations
Jesse uses a critical eye to supervise the store operations for our supermarkets. These include asset protection, food safety, risk management, store operations, front end systems, shop from home, environmental compliance, and safety.
Jesse joined Ravitz Family Markets as a part-time loss prevention agent in 2007 and previously served as the company’s security supervisor. He received a Master’s degree in criminal justice from Rutgers University-Camden and Bachelor of Science degrees in sociology and criminal justice from Rutgers University-New Brunswick. Prior to joining Ravitz Family Markets, he interned with the Camden County Sheriff Department’s Bureau of Criminal Identification and the New Jersey State Police.
One of Jesse’s key accomplishments is being elected to the Food Marketing Institute’s Asset Protection Council. As the council’s youngest member, he works with international grocery store leaders to help combat security issues and establish best practices for the industry. He was appointed to be a member of the New Jersey State Industrial Safety Committee in 2015, and in 2018 completed the FBI citizens academy program. Jesse was awarded the Wakefern Jerry Yaguda individual achievement award for risk and safety in 2013, and the Jerry Yaguda organizational award in 2012 and 2021. He was named the Loss Prevention Professional of the year by the New Jersey Food Council, and the New Jersey Retail Merchants Association, in 2015.
A former collegiate fencer, he holds undergraduate degrees from Rutgers New Brunswick, and a graduate degree from Rutgers Camden.
