Jessica Caroline Biography

Jessica Caroline was born on January 18, 1994, in Bangú, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Growing up Caroline was not particularly dedicated to competitive sports. That would change after reaching her teenage years, a time in which Jessica decided to join a fitness gym. It was there that Caroline became acquainted with jiu-jitsu, through a women-only class that was taught at her training vicinity.

Jessica was 17 years old (2011) when she first took the aforementioned women-only class, with coach Wendel Duarte. After enjoying training for a few months Caroline became more invested in the sport, which invariably led Caroline on to the competition circuit. In 2014, while competing at a local tournament by herself, black belt Alessandro Nunes helped Jessica, by standing in her corner and yelling instructions. Caroline enjoyed his coaching and decided to visit Nunes’ competition class, a schedule well known for gathering some of the best athletes in the Niteroi region.

After her first competition class, and although a 2-hour commute on public transport, Jessica Caroline started making regular trips to Alessandro Nunes’ gym, where she had the opportunity to train with big names of the sport such as Brenda Heller and Rudson Mateus. In June 2014 Caroline finally decided to make a more definitive move to the Niteroi based team, then becoming a full-time athlete.

For one year Jessica traveled those 2 hours each way to train with her new team, making the most of her time by spending up to 12 hours per day on the mats. With time, Caroline and her instructor Alessandro Nunes became good friends, a relationship that grew into more and eventually led to marriage.

After a spectacular year as a brown belt (2019) in which Jessica Caroline conquered the World and Pan Jiu-Jitsu titles – the two most important trophies in the sport, the young Rio de Janeiro athlete was finally promoted to black belt in a ceremony led by her instructor and husband Alessandro Nunes on September 2019.
