The Jet Experiments in Nuclear Structure and Astrophysics (JENSA) gas-jet target was used to perform spectroscopic studies of 20Ne+p reactions. Levels in 19Ne were probed via the 20Ne(p,d)19Ne reaction to constrain the astrophysical rate of the 18F(p,a)15O reaction. Additionally, the first spectroscopic study of the 20Ne(p,3He)18F reaction was performed. Angular distribution data were used to determine or confirm the spins of several previously observed levels, and the existence of a strong subthreshold 18F(p,a)15O resonance was verified.
