Jesse Sarles manages the content and operations for CBSDenver.com. He has been a digital journalist for more than two decades and has been working at CBS4 since 2002.
Keeping visitors to CBSDenver.com informed about the diverse array of issues that matter to them and making it as easy as possible for them to find that information has always been Jesse’s No. 1 goal. The job is made easier these days thanks to a fantastic digital team whose staff members are both aggressive and thoughtful in how they go about Covering Colorado First.
Some of the news stories that really stick out in Jesse’s mind when looking back on his career so far include the flooding in Colorado’s foothills in 2013, destructive wildfires in 2002 and 2012 and the coronavirus pandemic in 2020. Coverage of each of those situations has presented unique challenges and he and his team have learned numerous lessons from the experiences.
When he’s not at his computer, Jesse loves spending time with his family and can frequently be found jogging on one of Colorado’s beautiful trails. His favorite spot to visit in the Centennial State is Great Sand Dunes National Park & Preserve in the San Luis Valley.
