Jessica Drake has been a successful porn actress who started her career in 1999. She's won several awards over her notable career and is in the AVN Hall of Fame. While her career in the adult film industry is known, Drake was pushed into the spotlight even more after she became the 11th woman to accuse then-Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump of sexual misconduct.

Drake grew up in Texas and according to our sister station KSII-FM, "she attended EPCC and the University of Texas-El Paso in the late ‘90s while working as a 'house dancer' at an unnamed club." That's where she got the idea to join the adult industry.
