Born October 18, 1978 in Los Angeles, Jonathan spent four years living in Germany as a youth and still speaks some German. He stands at six feet. He is the middle of three children that includes two sisters. He went to public school until his Senior year and had to finish the year being home schooled. The teachers didn't like him doing a tv series and school at the same time.

He first became interested in show business when his cousin Crystal took him with her on her acting auditions. At age nine, he asked his cousin to take him to auditions, and within six months got his first role, a small part in the television series "21 Jump Street." In addition to landing the role, he was also flown out to Vancouver, Canada, where the show was being filmed.

Wesley enjoys basketball, volleyball and swimming. He has also performed as a singer, rapper and hip-hop dancer with a group he formed with his friends.

Wesley appeared on Boston Public in 2000 and played Tyronn, a gang banger that killed a boy. He tells a teacher and the teacher is trapped between telling the truth or protecting Tyronn. Fox thought so high of him and the storyline that they sent his two episode stint to members of the Emmy board to consider the two parter for an Emmy nomination.

He is also good friends with Brandy and Kel Mitchell. He grew up with them before leaving high school.

Wesley appears on the new WB comedy What I like About You with Jennie Garth (90210)and Simon Rex (Jack & Jill). He was the only black to tryout for the role and easily won it.

He is also featured in Ebony Magazine's 24 Most Eligible Bachelors for 2002. He wants a woman that is sensitive and strong. She also has to make him laugh and not be ashamed about doing it. He is also working on releasing his own music and sunglasses for 2003. He is also in a singing group with Roy Williams of the Dallas Cowboys callled Third Story.
