On the 19th of February 1995, Jesse Bongiovi was born into the home of John Francis Bongiovi Jr., popularly known as Jon Bon Jovi and Dorothea Hurley. Jesse is the second child of four children born to the couple and is also their first son.

Considering that he is the child of a celebrity, it should not come as a surprise to know that he lived in an upper-class neighborhood in New Jersey. Jesse has three other siblings. He has an elder sister named Stephanie Rose, who was born in 1993, and two younger brothers named Jacob Hurley and Romeo Jon, who were born in 2002 and 2004, respectively. Of all of Jesse’s siblings, it is very obvious that he has a very close resemblance to his father.

His Father Is A Legendary Musician, While His Mother Is A Martial Arts Teacher

As already mentioned, Jesse Bongiovi is the son of Jon Bon Jovi, a legendary singer, songwriter, musician, and actor who has been active in the entertainment industry since 1975. He plays different genres of music, including hard rock, rock, arena rock, glam metal, etc. He has an amazing voice and is good with the guitar.

Jon Bon Jovi is best known for being the founder and leader of the rock band Bon Jovi. In 2009, he was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. He is the founder and was once the major owner of Arena Football League and is also the founder of Philadelphia Soul. He has been featured in movies like National Lampoon’s Pucked, New Year’s Eve, and Young Guns II.

While Jesse’s father has been consistent with building a name for himself in the entertainment industry, his mother, Dorothea Hurley, has been doing the same in the world of martial arts. She is a 4th-degree black belt holder in karate and is also a martial artist in New Jersey.

Jesse Bongiovi Has Interest In Football

Jesse grew up in New Jersey but moved to Manhattan, and not long after moving, he started studying at Poly Prep in Brooklyn. He joined the school’s football, where he was a two-time letter winner and a three-time letter winner in lacrosse.

When he joined his team, they had a 2-7 record, but with his involvement and the help of coach Dino Mangiero and his teammates, they were able to improve the records to 6-2. As a senior in high school, he took part in New York City football all-star game and was a part of SOUL Foundation and Blue Key Society

He Continued With Football-related Activities At The University

After graduating from high school, Jesse Bongiovi continued his education at the University of Notre Dame’s College of Arts. And later went on to study political science and business economics. While in the university, he did not stop getting involved in football.

During his sophomore year, he suffered a knee injury that lasted until he became a freshman, and as a result, he was sidelined during his first year at university. However, the knee injury did not last forever as he was soon able to join the university’s football team in 2016. On the 26th of September, he made his football debut at the school in a match against the University of Massachusetts Amherst.

Jesse’s keen interest in football does not come as a surprise, considering that his father is the founder of a football club. Despite not following his father’s career path in entertainment, it can be seen that they still share a similar interest in football.

During His Senior Year, He Came Up With The Idea Of Starting A Wine Brand

During his senior year, while discussing with his dad, the idea of starting a Rose wine brand came to him. At the family house in East Hampton, New York, where Jesse usually spent most of his holiday, while sitting on the porch by 2 am, his father asked if he had any “pink juice” (Pink Juice is what Jon Bon Jovi called rose wine). In response to his father, Jesse said since they were in Hampton, his father should refer to Rose wine as Hampton water.

On hearing that, his father got interested and was of the strong opinion that calling a wine brand ‘Hampton Water’ would be a great idea. And Jesse did not waste so much time before delving into creating a label and coming up with a marketing idea for the brand.

Jesse and his dad reached out to a well-known French winemaker Gérard Bertrand, and he loved the idea and was willing to partner with them. Two years after the idea of starting Hampton Water came, it was launched in February 2018.

In May 2019, He Launched Hampton Burger

Jesse Bongiovi is very much business-inclined, and thankfully he has a father who supports him. About a year and some months after the launch of Hampton Water, he entered into another partnership with Umami Burger to start Hampton Burger. The burger is sold at any Umami restaurant, and one dollar from every sale goes to his father’s foundation – The Jon Bon Jovi Foundation.
