Long grew up in Baltimore, Maryland, but is originally from Siberia. When she was only 13 months old, she was adopted from a Russian orphanage. Born with fibular hemimelia, Jessica had to have her legs amputated below the knees so she could be fitted for prosthetic legs and learn how to walk. She began swimming in her grandparents' pool before joining her first competitive team in 2002. By age 12, she was a member of the Paralympic Team and represented Team USA in Athens.
