Jesse was born on Lackland Air Force Base and was raised in San Antonio, Texas. The 3rd generation of her military family, she joined the Air Force at age 18 and got stationed in Alaska as her first assignment, and deployed to Baghdad International Airport. Jesse separated from the military before moving to Minot AFB in 2010 when her son, Buddy was just four months old, and later met her husband, Sammy. The Gallegos family enjoys football, practicing and coaching olympic weightlifting as a hobby, as well as spending as much time outside together as possible while it's warm enough! They are thankful God brought them out of their comfort zone into the midwest to get a hold of their hearts and show them the purpose he had for their lives.
