In the mainstream media, once the name Sarah Jade gets mentioned, the first reference that is made about her is as the wife of Dave Bautista who gained fame as an American actor and retired wrestler. Even though most people got to know her as Dave’s wife, she is still popular in some quarters as a professional pole dancer who has been a part of various competitions in the past. That said, her marriage to the wrestler is one of the things that have added to her fame.
Who is Sarah Jade and How Old is She?
It was on December 12, 1987, that Sarah Jade was born in Tampa, Florida, the United States, which is also where she was brought up. She got her education from the University of South Florida from where she graduated in 2011 with a sociology degree.
Pole dancing is not something that she has loved since she was a child. Instead, she fell in love with it when she was 18 after she first saw a YouTube video of the famous pole dancer Alethea Austin and that of Karol Hems. From then on, she has not looked back on the career that she has come to love dearly.
