At the age of 38, Jesse discovered what held him back as a man, and his life has not been the same since. Although a working man with a successful small business, he realized that anger was destroying his spirit and distorting his identity. He started BOND with the intent to rebuild men, with a special focus on black young men like himself, whose stories he’d lived for forty years. Going on 35 years since starting BOND, Jesse has reached and successfully helped men, women and children of all races across America and the world, enjoying peace within.

Counseling

Counselor

Many pastors refer people to outside counseling and therapy to deal with addictions and psychological, emotional, and sexual issues. Because of Jesse’s understanding of human nature, having faced and overcome his own challenges and passions, and having helped people high and low, he offers uniquely down-to-earth counseling that cuts to the heart of complicated issues. Men and women look to him — from dignitaries, rock stars, and businessmen to inmates, single mothers, and the homeless. Even the most repressed or difficult-to-control children feel better after just a few minutes of talking with him.

SCAM: How the Black Leadership Exploits Black America - BOND Store | Amazon

First published in 2005, to this day Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas talks glowingly about Jesse’s book SCAM. Justice Thomas smiled when he received his copy of The The Antidote, and said of Jesse, “I like this guy. He is not afraid.” SCAM documents the fraud and wickedness of false leaders including Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Louis Farrakhan, Maxine Waters, the Congressional Black Caucus, the NAACP, and others who thrive on the failure of black communities they pretend to serve. Jesse Lee Peterson proves that these people have no love for anyone, and only serve destruction in America by intimidating whites and deceiving blacks with appeals to anger.

From Rage to Responsibility - BUY NOW! | Amazon

First published in 2000, this book is helping people who read it to this day. Frequent radio caller Christian from Canton, Michigan, a young man who considered himself an atheist who was initially turned off by Jesse’s statements, says that From Rage to Responsibility opened his eyes to his own anger and to the truth about societal ills still facing us. He released guilt about his mother who committed suicide, forgave his father, and turned his life and family around.

From Rage to Responsibility documents Jesse’s own life, explains and gives evidence about the real diagnosis of problems with issues such as race, men and women, abortion, immigration, and education, and then gives the solution to those problems.
