Jessica and JP have been together for nearly two years, as she wrote on April 28, 2020, that it was their one-year anniversary. She described their relationship as “Late night phone calls with my best friend, falling asleep on FaceTime every night, missing you from thousands of miles away, tears, laughs, practical jokes from afar, visits home, late nights at the field.”
The baseball pitcher proposed to Jess on May 23, 2020, and the reality star wrote on Instagram, “Last night became the best night of my life my BEST FRIEND got down on one knee and asked me to be his Wife!! I said ‘YES!'”
In the build-up to the wedding day, Jess frequently wrote about the planning, especially with the COVID-19 pandemic. She encouraged fellow brides who were getting stressed about planning their big day to remember the importance of the day and to not let the changes to their plans get them down.

Jessica appeared on The Real World: Portland in 2013 alongside other future Challenge stars Jordan Wiseley, Johnny Reilly, Nia Moore, Averey Tressler and Marlon Williams. Following her appearance on the MTV show, she joined the cast of The Challenge as a rookie on Rivals II. She was eliminated quickly in the second episode but returned for Free Agents where she made it much further until her elimination in the ninth episode.
After Free Agents, Jessica returned to the show for Battle of the Exes II and was paired with Dustin Zito, but the two were eliminated first and went home in the third episode after losing in the “Battle of the EX-iled.” Her final season was Rivals III where she was paired with Johnny Reilly, and the two were never able to see eye to eye, getting eliminated in the fifth episode.
The current season of The Challenge, Double Agents, airs on Wednesdays at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
