Events by Jesse is a specialized event planning company.  Customizable experiences may include full or partial service event planning, day-of event management, and creative concept development. 

Using Events by Jesse allows you to directly work with founder, Jesse Reing.  Jesse has over 10 years of experience in the hospitality and event industry managing Michelin Star restaurants, leading the catering team for the President of FIT, and acting as the director of events for NYC’s largest luxury coffee and chocolate brand, FIKA. 

Born, raised and bat-mitzvahed in New York, Jesse is excited to offer her services at locally at home, as well as national and international destinations.  Jesse knew from a young age that her purpose in life was to help people realize their vision for their most important occasions.  Her creativity, precision, and passion for exquisite service are what set her apart from her industry peers.

After graduating from Binghamton University Jesse actualized her purpose by earning a Masters of Business Administration in Hotel Management from Switzerland's renowned Université Centre Cesar Ritz.  After returning from Europe she worked in catering and events for Manhattan luxury hotels, where she began planting the seeds for what would soon become ‘Events by Jesse’. By attending the Institute of Culinary Education and obtaining a diploma in Pastry and Baking arts, as well as Culinary Management, Jesse gained a heightened level of expertise that would allow her to manage all elements of an event.  

Given her unique experience in both client services and her previous work as a vendor, she seamlessly navigates her clients’ wants and needs through the event planning trifecta — catering, entertainment and design.
