Jesse Cox

Jesse Cox (1986–2017) )was one of Australia's finest radio producers.

Jesse created a tremendous body of audio in his 31 years. A two time Third Coast/RHDF Competition winner (Best Documentary: Silver & Director’s Choice) Jesse was also the ABC Radio National Features Editor, executive producer of the award-winning Trace podcast, co-creator of This is About and host of Radiotonic . He also hosted and produced Long Story Short on RN, and was one of the creators and executive producers of All the Best , FBi Radio's documentary and storytelling program. Most recently, Jesse was Audible Australia's head of original content.

Jesse worked tirelessly to create storytelling platforms that other producers could re-invent as their own. He passed away in December of 2017, and will continue to impact generations of audio makers around the world.
