At a young age, Jesse decided to be an actor and became part of Albuquerque Children’s Theatre for six years. He attended St. Plus X High School where he took part in productions such as “Bye Bye Birdie” and “Li’l Abner”. He was also part of the speech debate team, and worked at Cliff’s Amusement Park as a singer/dancer. He matriculated in 1994, and would then attend the American Musical and Dramatic Academy (AMDA) in New York City.

Ferguson started his career in theatre and appeared in several Broadway shows. He was part of the Tony Award-winning “25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” in which he played Leaf Coneybear. He also appeared in the 2007 production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” at Shakespeare in the Park, as well as a 2015 production of “The Tempest”, and also in “8”, which was a re-enactment of the overturned ban on same-sex marriage in California.

For his television and film career, Jesse started out in the short-lived sitcom “The Class” before appearing in the film “Untraceable”. In 2009, he was cast as the openly gay lawyer Mitchell Pritchett in “Modern Family”, and aside from his work and achievements there, he was cast as a judge in “So You Think You Can Dance”.

“Modern Family” is a mockumentary style sitcom that started airing in 2009, which follows the lives of Jay Pritchett and his family who reside in Los Angeles. The show is presented in such a way that the cast members are interviewed and talk directly to the camera to give their personal insights. The show is critically acclaimed and has won a total of 22 Emmy awards so far, and earned an estimated $2.13 million an episode during 2012 alone.

For his personal life, it is known that Jesse is openly gay, and married lawyer Justin Mikita in 2013; according to him, he had to tell his father on three separate occasions that he was gay. Jesse also does philanthropic work, founding the non-profit charity “Tie The Knot” which aims to support same-sex marriage; the foundation markets limited edition bow-ties with the proceeds going to organizations that support marriage equality. In 2013, he was named the American Civil Liberties Union Celebrity Ambassador for the LGBT community, travelling to various states to promote same-sex marriage.

#Quote
1 [re Do Not Disturb (2008)] It got canceled after three episodes. It was a three-part mini-series, I like to say. It didn't work. I played a gay character on it, and it was not a good fit. And I was nervous about going into another gay role until I read the Modern Family (2009) script. But it was such good writing. A wonderful character, a wonderful story. It didn't occur to me for a second to worry about it...but when I was in that in-between time, between jobs, I was thinking: 'O.K., that was not a good experience. Don't do yourself a disservice by playing a character that you don't particularly like'.
2 [re The Class (2006)] I played a suicidal kid who had this beautiful love story with a woman he runs over with his car. [Being gay,] I never felt uncomfortable looking at her that way. It's just part of playing a character. You click over. This is the world that this character lives in, and these are the rules this character abides by...With 'The Class,' my first show, I was very excited to work in a medium I had never worked in before. I am a huge fan of Friends (1994) and Will & Grace (1998) and all these classic sitcoms. So, to be in front of a live studio audience with James Burrows, who is the icon of all icons when it comes to directing multi-camera shows, I felt like I was living in a dream.
3 Ty Burrell [Phil Dunphy on Modern Family (2009)] calls shows like ours 'Trojan horses' because you sneak in there and make people feel comfortable. And then maybe you show a little bit of an agenda. But the audience is acclimated to it at a very comfortable rate...Obviously, our main objective is to be funny and make people laugh, and whatever comes out of it, comes out of it. But there were certain times, especially in our first season, when we didn't have any gay writers, when it was harder. Then in our second season, we acquired Abraham Higginbotham, who was also a writer on Will & Grace (1998)...He and Jeff Richman are our two gay acquisitions. But in the first season, some of the writers would come to me and be like: 'Is this offensive? Are we going too far with this?' And Eric Stonestreet [who plays Mr. Ferguson's partner on 'Modern Family"] was always concerned about making sure everything was up to my standards. And I kept saying: Stop worrying about it!...Once you start worrying about being offensive, you're doing a disservice to yourself and the creative process. I also begged them to get some gay writers so I didn't have to be bothered with their questions.
