Jesper started playing Disc Golf in 1991 in a small suburb outside Skelleftea in Northern Sweden. His house growing up was only 400 feet from the course. With real athletic talent in more recognized sports at the time, soccer and ice hockey, for him (and his parents) it was a bit controversial to see a future in Disc Golf.
At 17 he devoted his skills to Disc Golf, the ONLY sport for him! Jesper was a touring pro from 1999 to 2014. During that time he was a 7-time Swedish Champion; plus won both the 2008 Scandinavian Open and 2009 European Open (both majors); and the 2010 European Championships.
Since the early 2000’s, almost every active player in Europe has had Jesper as an idol and role model! Also, he is very much respected by other world competitors for his outstanding skills and true sportsmanship!
Jesper stopped competing in 2014 to start a family and become CEO and part-owner of a bread company. Jesper still plays regularly and teaches others how to play and enjoy Disc Golf. That type of giving character is why he was recognized by his peers and voted into the Disc Golf Hall of Fame.
