Jesse Wysinger, on October 22, 1921 became the editor of The Western Outlook (1894-1928 San Francisco): A Newspaper Devoted to the Interests of the Negro on the Pacific Coast. He may have inspired his daughter, Gladys, who later became an editor at the San Francisco Spokesman, to pursue a career in journalism. In 1934, Jesse's wife, Lena M. Wysinger, took over Delilah Beasley's Activities Among Negroes column in the famous mainstream Oakland Tribune after her death. The columnist position Lena held until the early 1940s.
