television series "Saddle Club," in which he played Simon Atherton, a 13-year-old computer geek.

Jessup credits his love for the dramatic arts and entertainment industry to his involvement with local youth theater growing up. His skills extend far beyond the scope of acting on the big or small screen as this teenage prodigy has been writing, directing, producing and editing films from the age of 11.

His producing credits include the independent film "Amy George," which recently premiered at the Wisconsin International Film Festival. The independent film follows a 13-year-old boy's quest to become an artist, whose dreams are halted because he believes his mundane life has left him unprepared to make his dream a reality. After reading a book on what it takes to become a true artist, this seemingly unlikable boy finds himself in a life of risk, ecstasy, wilderness and women.

Jessup recently completed the short film "Something," which he wrote, directed, produced and edited. "Something" follows 10-year-old Jack as he struggles to find beauty in life after he survives the collapse of the human existence. Jessup also wrote, directed and produced the short film "I Don't Hurt Anymore!" in addition to the play "Pushing Normal," in which he received the Award of Distinction for the script at the 2010 Sears Drama Festival.
