Jesse Taylor Rugge (born November 10, 1979) is one of the former members of Jesse James Hollywood's gang that helped in the murder of Nicholas Markowitz.[1] Rugge was charged with helping in the kidnap and execution of Nicholas Markowitz.[2]

His trial started in April 2002.[3] He also tied Nicholas' hands together and put duct tape over his mouth right before his execution and helped Ryan Hoyt bury the body.[2] In September 2002 Rugge was sentenced to life in prison, with the possibility of parole after seven years.[4] Rugge was incarcerated in Avenal State Prison for his part in Nicholas Markowitz's murder. His parole in 2006 was denied.[citation needed]
