Phillips has also studied towards a bachelor's degree in media at Murdoch University but deferred due to Olympic qualification and selection commitments.

In early 2013, after his first Olympic Games, Jesse alongside doubles partner Stephen Bird commenced as sponsored ambassadors with Perth-based contractor.

Jesse recently competed for Australia in the world Marathon Championships and is in training for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic games.
