Corti's first wife, Laura, was killed in a 1987 collision between an Amtrak train and a Conrail freight train in Chase, Maryland. At that time, Laura Corti had been returning to New York City after having seen her husband perform in Les Misérables at the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. The crew of the freight train in that collision tested positive for marijuana and Jesse Corti subsequently appeared in both an English-language and a Spanish-language public service announcement for Partnership for a Drug-Free America.
