Football career[edit]

Born in Almansa, Castile-La Mancha, Jara began his career with hometown's UD Almansa. In June 2011 he joined Sporting de Gijón, being assigned to the reserves in the third division.[1]

On 27 November 2012, Jara made his debut with the Asturians' first team, in a 0–2 away loss against CA Osasuna for the season's Copa del Rey.[2] On 2 February of the following year he appeared in his first second level game, playing the full 90 minutes in a 1–2 home defeat to Racing de Santander.[3]

On 15 March 2013, Jara renewed his contract with Sporting until 2016.[4] One day later he scored his first goal with the main squad, contributing to a 5–2 home win over FC Barcelona B.[5]

On 22 July 2015, after starting in only one match during the 2014–15 campaign, Jara cut ties with the Rojiblancos,[6] and joined Albacete Balompié two days later.[7]
