Mark Alba (father)
Mark at the time of Jessica’s birth was a military man and always had to move. Every time he needed to relocate, his family did also hence Jessica’s unstable childhood. Alba as a child was isolated from her mates not just because of her family’s unending migration but because her health was poor while she was growing. Today, Jessica is a superhero and is forever grateful to her parents both for their humble beginnings that pushed her to be better. Mark Alba and Cathy Jensen are devout Catholics and boast of more than three decades of marriage.
