BE YOUR OWN HERO!
Jessie has spent the last ten years behind the scenes working as a stunt woman. Recently, she has had some face time which she strives to use for breaking gender stereotypes, and becoming a positive female role model. Being feminine shouldn’t mean you can’t be athletic, strong and confident. Healthy is attractive! As a child, Jessie wanted to run away to the circus, but having limited means at age five, she settled with circus gymnastics classes that her mom signed her up for instead. At nine they moved to the woods of Pennsylvania and no longer having access to circus gymnastics she demanded her mom spot her while she attempted to learn back handsprings (despite her mother's insistence that this was a bad idea).
After realizing that her mother didn’t really know how to spot, Jessie’s mom found a gymnastics gym an hour away that she took her daughter to four days a week while working three jobs. Thanks to her mom’s support toward her passions, Jessie secured a NCAA track and field scholarship and graduated from the University of Nebraska with a degree in theater. The day of her last final she headed to LA. Everyone asks how to get into stunts, Jessie tells us “you do what I did! Find where the top people train and learn from them, go hustle sets, get to know the coordinators and above all else be humble and never take a job outside your ability. As a part of a stunt team you are responsible for not only yourself, but the safety of your comrades. It took me a lifetime as an elite athlete to just get the basic tools I needed, years of training specific skills to get where I am, and I still have so much to learn it is staggering, but it is also exciting and fun because it is my passion!” Jessie Graff is truly one-of-a-kind.
