Jaycee Foeller was born and raised in De Soto, Missouri to J and Amber Foeller. Jaycee started wrestling after she was approached and encouraged by one of her brothers coaches, Dave Willis.

“Coach Willis asked me why I wasn’t on the mat. I told him because I’m a cheerleader.”

That one comment sparked a few family conversations, afterwards she decided to give wrestling a try.

According to Jaycee she started out of spite, “when my mom told my dad (about Coach Willis), he told me that I wouldn’t do it (wrestle), so to prove him wrong I wrestled that next practice and fell in love with the sport.”
