Jessica is a nationally ranked champion equestrian who’s won more than $1 million in prize money.
She has been riding since she was about five years of age and has become a show jumping champion, and is an elite rider on the Longines Global Champions Tour.
Though she grew up in New Jersey, Jessica moved to Valkenswaard in the Netherlands after graduating from Duke University with a major in psychology in 2014.

Family: Their father is one of the greatest rock stars on the planet, and yet all of Bruce’s kids lead very different lives (L-R: Evan, Bruce, Patti Scialfa, Sam, and Jessica in 2018)
She told CNN in 2017 that is was her mother, Patti Scialfa, who got her involved in horse riding all those years ago.
She said: ‘My mum had always wanted to ride so we moved to a farm in New Jersey.’
‘She started taking lessons and then I also wanted to start. I never wanted to miss a lesson and I ended up being right across the street from a really top junior training barn called Beacon Hill.’
According to Bruce Springsteen FAQ, her parents were eager to raise her and her brothers Evan James, 30, and Sam Ryan, 27, in a paparazzi-free environment.
