"Up Close" with Jordan Sessa


Jordan Sessa will be the starting center for Florida Atlantic football when fall practice begins in August, and that’s good news for Owl fans as he already has gained some valuable playing time with starting quarterback Jeff Van Camp. A redshirt-sophomore, Sessa played in four games last season and worked with Van Camp under center throughout fall and spring practices. Set to call the defenses and be the leader of the offensive line, Sessa will use his 6’5” 280 pound size to anchor the line and help the team win games.

Married to Deja Sessa last May, Sessa has been around the FAU program for two years before coming over from South Broward High School in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Sessa played offensive and defensive line throughout high school and was awarded with second-team All-Broward honors his junior and senior seasons. A civil engineering major, Sessa has always been smart in the classroom and was a dean’s list student while in high school. Sessa was also award with an Eagle Scout award before he turned 18.

Sessa recently sat down with us for “Up Close”.
