She attended and graduated from the University of La Sabana with a bachelor’s degree in Social Communication and Journalism, and while she was still at the University, she managed to become Miss Bogota which opened the doors to numerous opportunities.
Before moving to Miami, Jessica worked for a couple of small media companies based in Colombia – she began by working as an advertising model for magazines such as “Paparazzi”, while also appearing in several commercials, and after that she started working as an entertainment host in the “Bravissimo” TV show. She continued as a presenter of “Muy Buenos Dias” RCN TV show, before switching to “Nuestra Semana, nuestra tele”, and then began working for “Estilo RCN”.
She moved to Miami in 2014, and became a host of “The Fat Man and the Skinny Woman” (El Gordo y la Franca) Univision American Spanish-language entertainment news show for which she is famous today. She quit that job at the end of 2015, and in 2016 started working as a presenter of “Premios Juventud” and “Sal y Pimienta”. She is currently working on the “La Voz U.S” American singing competition TV series made for aspiring Latino singers who are 18 or older, which is broadcast on Telemundo.

She is also a trained dancer by profession, but is currently only focused on her hosting and acting career.
Jessica is very secretive when it comes to her love life, as she has shared almost nothing about it with the public. She once uploaded a picture on her social media account while holding the hand of an unknown man, but later on deleted it as people were curious, wanting to know more about his identity and their relationship. She currently seems to be dating a Mexican-American boxer named Jessie Vargas who she met in Miami when she was supposed to interview him about his fight, which he had back in November, 2016. The couple is rumored to be living together in Mexico after they both left US, however, during an interview with La W Radio, Jessica said: ‘I’m single, I’m single, happy, calm, working, dedicated to my family.’ She is known to have been dating the pop-star and pin-up Pipe Bueno for five years before she left Colombia in order to pursue her dreams in 2014 – she claimed that they were madly in love but couldn’t handle a long-distance relationship and therefore split. Jessica stated in a recent interview that she is ready to love again, and would like to have kids soon.
Jessica claimed during an interview that she has been the victim of cyber-bullying, and that it is still occasionally happening, but since she is clear about who she is, where she comes from and who her family and friends are, she is not disturbed by what people say online. She says that people act like this because they are frustrated and envious, because you’ve managed to fulfil your dreams and they did not, and will therefore attack you – she gave advice to everyone who is a victim of cyber-bullying, that you should not be disturbed by it as it has nothing do with you and has everything to do with them, and that the best weapon against it is to never stop being yourself.
Meeting Tom Cruise
Tom Cruise was promoting his blockbuster “Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation” in Times Square when he saw Jessica and immediately started flirting with her. ‘She’s a Sophia Vergara-Penelope Cruz type, very good-looking. She was wearing a tight white skirt. Her midriff was showing, high heels and black top,’ said one of the people who was there – ‘He gave her a kiss on the cheek before leaving; they got very friendly. She took a picture with him and showed him a video on her cell phone. They chatted for about 10 minutes.’ According to rumors, Tom asked for her ‘phone numbers later and she gave it to him, but it’s unknown if the two of them heard from each other afterwards.

Jessica is currently 36 years old, has long dark brown hair, light brown eyes, is 5ft 3ins (1.62m) tall, weighs around 115lbs (52kgs), and her vital statistics are 36-24-37.
Jessica has had a couple of surgeries, the first to raise her eyebrows, and the next to undergo buttocks plastic injections, but unfortunately for her, it did not go as planned, as she ended up having multiple scars and black marks on her back which were not supposed to be there – she had to undergo a further processes just to get rid of those scars and look normal again.
