Jessica's first film was Dealova and her second film was Diva. She is the only daughter and has 4 older brothers. Her father is a Muslim while her mother is a Christian

Career[edit]

Jedar, her nickname, began her career from modeling. Previously, she attended a model school in John Casablanca. Jedar's first film was Dealova 2005 and her second film was Diva (2007) from Malaysia.

In 2008–2012 Jedar starred in several soap operas and FTV (Television Movie) such as Gadis Pengantar Telur (2010) along with Vino Bastian, Cinta Pura-Pura Nyasar (2010) alongside with Rio Dewanto and Vicky Nitinegoro.

Jedar first time became a Presenter at Dahsyat on RCTI since March 2011–2013. In 2012 Jedar was trusted as Indonesia Earth Hour ambassador[2].

In September 2018 Jedar was invited to become the Guest Judge of Asia's Next Top Model Season 6 Episode 6 in Thailand[3].

Personal life[edit]

Jessica married at Protestant Church in Jakarta and was attended by several relatives on December 11, 2013 with a German citizen. Ludwig Franz Willibald Maria Joseph Leonard Erbgraf Von Waldburg Wolfegg Waldsee who is 2 years younger than Jessica and Hereditary prince of Johannes Franz Xaver Willibald Maria Joseph Philipp Jeningen Leonnard Erbgraf Fürst Von Waldburg Wolfegg Waldsee from 'Kingdom / Castle' Schloss Wolfegg of House of Waldburg. On January 8, 2014, the registration of this marriage was carried out at the Civil Registry Office and of course it was legally civil. Jessica admitted that from her marriage she had been blessed with a son named El Barack Alexander who was born on July 21, 2014 in the United States. On October 13, 2014, Jessica's husband registered a lawsuit to cancel the marriage to Indonesian Court. The reason for the cancellation of the marriage of Jessica and Ludwig believed because the castle adheres to Catholicism, so only marriages with non-Catholic religious couples who have received a Catholic Church dispensation are considered legitimate.

In April 2015, Indonesian Court refused the cancellation of marriage between Jessica Iskandar and Ludwig Franz Willibald Maria Joseph Leonard Erbgraf Von Waldburg Wolfegg Waldsee, as proposed by Ludwig. So automatically, the marriage and their son, El Barack Alexander, became valid.[4]

Autobiography[edit]

In February 2013 Jessica published her first autobiography, JEDAR: Jessica Is Jessica. And in December 2014, Jessica published her second autobiography, Jedar Power: Love, Life, Lord which mentioned her experiences while she was expecting her first child, El Barack Alexander without published any of her son's picture of being misused.[5]

Education[edit]

Jessica took a high school education at Bunda Mulia School. After that, Jessica has studied Interior Design at Trisakti University, Jakarta. Jessica reportedly did not continue her studies after going through three semesters due to career matters.
