Rocca was raised in Sterling Heights. On his website he says that he first became involved as a volunteer in political campaigns in the 1970s, indicating he was helping to elect his father Sal to office at least by the time he was five.
Rocca is a graduate of the University of Michigan and later worked for Johnson Controls in Troy as a lab technician. He then returned to the University of Michigan where he received a law degree. He passed the Michigan bar exam in 2000. He has been involved in business law and product liability law.
