Her dad has spent 40 years or so packing arenas and stadiums around the world as he performed in front of millions of his loyal and adoring fans, but Jessica Springteen will be doing her thing Tuesday in an empty arena in Tokyo.
Jessica Springsteen, Bruce’s 29-year old daughter is representing the U.S. in Tokyo, and will try to earn a medal when her competition starts this week.
Jessica is the real deal in her sport, currently ranked No. 14 and is the youngest member of the U.S. team.
Jessica’s parents had relocated back to New Jersey in the early 90’s, and to ensure their privacy they bought a 3680acre farm, right next to Beacon Hill Show Stables.
Jessica began riding horses at the age of 4, and started jumping and competing at a young age ad winning multiple titles as her career advanced.
After graduating from Duke in 2014, Jessica really zoomed in on her show jumping career, and was an alternate on the U.S. Olympic team in Rio in 2016.
Jessica and her fellow American team members have a legit shot at winning gold.
Bruce Springsteen along with Jessicas mother Patty Scalia will be at home watching and cheering her on at home, unable to be there in person because no fans are allowed in thee games.
