Her father is one of the greatest rock stars on the planet, but that isn't stopping her from making a name for herself.
However, for Bruce Springsteen's daughter Jessica, there isn't a guitar in sight.
Instead, it's all about horses.
And it's clear the brunette beauty was born to ride, after making headlines around the world following her silver medal when at the Tokyo Olympics with her seriously amazing equestrian skills.
The 29-year-old - who has been riding since she was about four years of age - pocketed silver on her 12-year-old stallion Don Juan Van de Donkhoeve as part of the Team USA Equestrian jumping team.
The team came up just short of Olympic gold, falling to Sweden in a jump-off, while Belgium won bronze.
"I was always really focused on riding," she previously revealed. "Ever since I was four years old, it's what I wanted to do."
And she described her parents as her "biggest supporters".
"It’s great that [my parents] come and share it as a family — they’re my biggest supporters," she said.
"I don’t think [my dad] gets as nervous as my mum, but they both really love to come. So I am happy they love it as much as I do."
Before making it big in the equestrian world, Jessica earned an undergraduate degree from Duke University in 2014.
After embarking on her career as a show jumping rider, she also did some modelling and was named the equestrian ambassador for Gucci.
