Jena Sims is an attractive model, a budding actress, and a compassionate philanthropist. She once wore the crown for ‘Miss National Junior Teenager’ Georgia and represented the state at the 2007 ‘Miss Teen USA’ pageant. Sims is popular in her own right but caught more of the media attention when she started going out with Brooks Koepka – an award-winning professional golfer.
Following their first meeting at the 2015 Masters, Jena and Brooks have remained ever close, dishing out different shades of couple goals.
Relationship With Brooks Koepka
Jena Sims and Brooks Koepka first met each other in 2015 but they did not start dating until around August 2017. Brooks Koepka is an exceptional golf player who holds the number 8 position on the list of world best golfers. So far, he has won the US Open twice as well as a USPGA Championship.
Their relationship caused quite a stir with the media constantly trailing the enigmatic couple. Jena seems to be basking in the attention and has been rumored to be getting more modeling jobs due to the attention.
The model has been tagged Brooks’ “Good Luck Charm” as he won his 3 major championship back to back during the course of their relationship. Jena seems to be genuinely in love with Brooks as she frequently shares their intimate pictures on her social media pages. She has also been a permanent fixture in most of his games, cheering him on the sidelines.
The pair caused quite a stir on Instagram recently when Jena posted a racy shot (with her topless & straddling him) of them while vacationing at Virgin Gorda, the Caribbean, after Brooks finished second at ‘The Masters’ behind Tiger Woods.
Since they started dating, Jena has become the greatest cheerleader of Brooks even though when they first met, he was worried she might get bored watching him play. More so, their relationship seems to have impacted his career in a positive light as since then, he has won the PGA Championship and two US Open championships among other things.
Previous Links Before Brooks
Before her relationship with the professional golfer, Jena once dated American actor, Robert Buckley. The two were first linked in 2011 and by 2012, they went their separate ways. There is no so much information as regards their love life. With the exception of this, she has always managed to keep her love life away from the public until Brooks.
On his part, Brooks once dated Becky Edwards from 2012 to 2016. She is a soccer player from Florida. The two were a very popular and interesting couple, so much that even after they parted ways, Jena was mistakenly referred to as Becky by Fox sports announcer Joe Buck in 2017 after the golfer won the US Open. He would later apologize for the mistake.
Jena Sims Grew Up Interested In Acting And Modeling
Jena Michelle Sims was born to her loving parents in Winder, Georgia, the United States, on the 30th of December in 1988. Growing up in Winder, little Jena showed an interest in acting and modeling; hence, she started participating in beauty pageants when she was young. She also came to love golfing, thanks to her father who enjoyed and played the sport.
She schooled at Winder-Barrow High School from where she graduated in 2007. Jena then proceeded to study ‘International Business’ at the prestigious Belmont University, Nashville, Tennessee. Unfortunately, she didn’t complete her university education there as she dropped out to pursue her acting and modeling career in Hollywood.

With her mind always set on pageantry and modeling, she started at a very young age. Sims would go on to win the crown of “Miss Georgia Junior National Teenager” in 2004 and “Miss Junior National Teenager” in 2005. She went ahead to win the 2007 “Miss Georgia Teen USA title in a fierce contest at Newnan. Afterwards, she contested in the “Miss Teen USA” 2007 in Pasadena, California, representing Georgia. Ironically, she didn’t make any significant position in the contest. She became the first Miss Georgia without a significant place since 2003.
Despite this setback, Jena has maintained a positive attitude. She possesses a zest for life that is almost infectious. She has used her position to reach out and make a difference in her own little way. More so, she runs a non-profit organization called “Pageant of Hope” which holds beauty pageants for children with cancer and particular disadvantages. They also help these children to improve on their poise, grace, communication skills, and stage presence. The contest/pageant has been held in Michigan, New York, Winder GA, California, Tennesse, and Wisconsin with the hope to expand to South Carolina.
Jena Sims got her first big break in acting in 2012 when she featured as ‘Cassie’ in the movie “Attack of the 50 Foot Cheerleader.” She has since then featured in “Entourage” (2010), “Chocolate Milk” (2013), “Last Vegas” (2013), “American Beach House” (2015), “Satisfaction” (2015), “Sharknado: Heart of Sharkness” (2017), “Tales of Frankenstein” (2018), and “Beneath the Leaves” (2019), among others.
Jena is very active on social media and shares a post or picture almost every day to keep her accounts active. She has over 124 thousand followers on Instagram where she constantly shows off her tanned bikini body. On Facebook, she has over 2.3 thousand followers and 9.3 followers on Twitter. She is one of the few celebrities who has used social media to an advantage. Being a model, she uses her social media pages to further enhance her publicity.
She Has Both The Fame And The Numbers
Jena Sims has gained enough fame for a lifetime, thanks to her relationship with a renowned golfer, modelling career, as well as her involvement in business. At the heels of her fame is a net worth that is estimated at an impressive $2 million. Her earnings are mostly from her acting and modelling career and although the sum may be a modest one compared to other people in those same careers, Jena still has time to grow a solid empire.
Brooks, on the other hand, has a bigger net worth that is estimated at $18 million. His fortune is accumulated through his career as a professional golfer and the various endorsement deals he has attracted.
More than just making money, she also has a heart of giving which she does through her foundation. Thanks to this, Jena has had lots of recognition and won several awards with respect to her charity contributions. Among other awards, she got the Nestle Very Best in Youth Award, Southern Hero Award, Bronze and Silver medallion of Prudential Spirit of Community Award, Brick Do Something National Award, and was named by NFIB as Georgia Young Entrepreneur.
Sims Is Blessed With Beauty And A Great Body
Jena Sims is one of those women who seem to have it all as far as looks and grace are concerned. Thanks to this and the fact that she has worked as a model, she isn’t shy to flaunt her hot body.
The former pageant titleholder is quite tall, standing at an impressive 5 feet 8 inches (172.7cm). To complement this, her body weighs around 56kg (123 lbs) and she has body measurements (bust-waist-hips) of 34-24-35 inches, which basically gives her body goals.
