Even though they grew up in the suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio, Alan Megargle and Jesse Morgan still find plenty of time to head out into the woods in search of the elusive Sasquatch. Both are members of the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization, a national group of investigators who follow up on eyewitness reports. They’ve investigated many sightings and conducted their own hunt for evidence of Bigfoot’s existence. Together they form Fathom Frontiers and lead Bigfoot night hikes for the Ohio State Park System and run the all-inclusive Bigfoot Adventure Weekends family campout. As film makers, Alan and Jesse produced the documentary Minerva Monster and directed the new feature film The Back 80.
Jesse began taking researching Bigfoot seriously in the summer of 2009. Growing up with a family that primitive camped nearly every summer has given Jesse a lifetime of experience in the field. This comfort level allows Jesse to see and hear things others may miss while in the field.
Jesse has a diverse background that includes strategic planning, marketing and military. Jesse’s background gives him a critical eye and the drive to get the answers needed to solve this mystery. Jesse would like nothing more than to bring conclusive evidence to the world that proves the existence of Bigfoot.
Alan began in earnest researching the Bigfoot phenomenon during the summer of 2009. Being in the field has been the number one priority for Alan, and this effort has resulted in a number of “close calls” including recordings of possible wood knocks and vocalizations.
Despite having a successful career as an engineer, Alan’s true passion is a calling to research the unknown. Since childhood he has always found time to get in the field, whether lying on his parents roof watching the heavens or digging his heels into another muddy uphill hike, Alan finds excitement in knowing he could share one of the greatest scientific discoveries with the world.
