I am Dr. Jesse Houghton, Medical Director of Gastroenterology at Southern Ohio Medical Center. Along with my wife and our two daughters, Alexandra and Charlotte, I relocated to the Portsmouth area from Ocean County, NJ a year ago.
In my spare time, i enjoy my family, friends, exercising, traveling, landscaping/yard work, the stock market and whatever my daughters happen to be interested in at the time.
"I feel that the Red Cross does so many amazing things for so many segments of society and I am grateful for this opportunity to be a part of this organization in this fun event."
My only musical/dance background is breakdancing in elementary school. When asked my thoughts about participating in Dancing With Our Stars, “I was surprised to be asked to be involved, after only being in the area for one year. It took me about a week to decide to agree to participate, but I am so glad that I did. Initially my hesitation involved personal questions about whether I was willing to dance in front of hundreds of people. However, my thoughts quickly turned to the fact that I would be a part of something bigger. Then I found out that I’d be dancing with a 20 year old professional dancer, and I again said “what have I gotten myself into!” But what the heck, I’m willing to potentially embarrass myself for a good cause! “
