Jes Meza is originally from Tucson, Arizona, but moved around her entire childhood partially because her father was in the Air Force. Jes was born in Hahn, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany and has lived in Germany, Spain, Mexico, New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and different cities throughout Southern California, ranging from Valencia, Venice, San Diego, Inglewood and of course Hollywood to name a few!

When she was 18 years old, she attempted to model but was told she was too athletic and needed to lose weight. After her high school graduation from San Diego, Jes moved back to Los Angeles and was discovered in a night club by a model scout, then signed to M models the very next day. She modeled for a few years but then decided to branch off into acting after she couldn’t meet the standards of being thin. Her first job was on the set of “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” directed by Troy Bailey in 2003. She was hired as a background extra, but after Troy met her, she was bumped up to a featured extra and then a day player.

Jes found her acting home and foundation with Arthur Mendoza focusing on the use of imagination via the Stella Adler technique. Her screen work has included several independent features like “Internet Dating” and “Seal Team VI”. She’s been seen on web series’ such as “Johnny Be Homeless” and “Better”. Jes recently toured with Will & Company for Hispanic heritage month in a 2-man play, taking on 9 different characters for “Latino’s Shaping a Nation”. She also took the stage in an all-female reinterpretation play of Quentin Tarantino’s “Reservoir Dogs” in the highly charged Ms. Orange role. She is represented by MZA.
