Midfielder who started with the Wanderers Centre of Excellence aged 14 and progressed through to become Captain of Under 18's Youth Team at Adams Park and was a member of the side that lifted the Youth Alliance Cup in May 2011. Signed a pro deal at the end of the 2011/12 season but had to be patient to have his First Team break, first appearing during the pre-season friendlies prior to the start of the 2013/14 campaign - including an impressive substitute appearance against Aston Villa at Adams Park on 20th July 2013. The previous May he had signed a new one year contract with the Club and commented, "Iím delighted to be staying. Iíve been here since I was 14 and itís a dream come true to sign a new contract. Iíve been in love with the club since the day I joined and I just want to keep it going." He added, ďSeeing Josh [Scowen] play 30 or 40 games last season inspires you to do what heís doing, Jesse as well.Hopefully I can get on the bench a bit more, make my debut and get some appearances under my belt.Ē

Went on to make his Football League and First Team debut as a late substitute in the opening game of 2013/14 season as Wanderers hosted Morecambe. Gained his first start in the Football League Trophy victory at Exeter City on 3rd September 2013 and the following weekend hit the headlines when he scored twice from the bench in the 2-1 Football League victory at Hartlepool.

In January 2014 he was rewarded by Manager Gareth Ainsworth with a new deal running until the end of the 2015/16 season. Commenting on the deal, Kretzschmar said, "I'm delighted. I joined at 14 and I've grown up with Wycombe Wanderers which has been a big part of my life. As a young player, it's important to get games under your belt. The best thing for my development is to stay here and keep giving my all for Wycombe.".

Having signed the new deal he went on to score further goals during the relegation haunted 2013/14 season, including vital League strikes in victories over League leaders Chesterfield, away at Exeter and at home to Dagenham & Redbridge. He was an unused substitute in the dramatic final day survival game at Torquay on 3rd May 2014 but was one of the first on the pitch at the final whistle to celebrate.

Struggled to hold down a regular place in Wanderers team that went close to gaining promotion in the Play-Offs at the end of the 2014/15 season, while the following campaign injury added to his woes. Released by Gareth Ainsworth at the end of the 2015/16 campaign following having spent eight years with the Club.
