Jessica is the daughter of Amy and Mike Parratto. She has an older sister, Melissa, who is a swimmer at the University of Pennsylanvia. Her dad is a swim coach and coached Olympic gold medalist swimmer Jenny Thompson, who Jessica says is like a sister to her. Jessica’s mom was a five-time All-American diver at Wellesley College and was Jessica’s coach before moving to Indianapolis. Jessica started diving when she was 5 and moved to Indianapolis from New Hampshire in 2009 due to limited facilities (her pool had only one 1-meter springboard). She has since become one of the top 10-meter platform divers in the country. Jessica’s favorite dive is 5253, and her favorite diver is Laura Wilkinson. Between dives, she listens to music and relaxes. She enjoys hanging out with friends, going to the beach, and outdoor activities. Jessica participated in gymnastics, swimming, and soccer until she was 13. Her favorite foods are mashed potatoes and LaFesta pizza back in New Hampshire.
