About a year after their engagement, the couple welcomed their first child together, thereby making Jasmine's father, Michael Jordan, a proud grandfather.

Although Jasmine never had an interest in basketball like her father, the 27-year-old was involved in other sports such as dance, volleyball, and flag football.

Her interests in sports prompted her to study sports management at the university. Following her graduation, she started working with the Jordan Brand athletes who play for her father's basketball team, Charlotte Hornets.

Jasmine is committed to her work, which entails making sure the players she represents have their sneakers, apparel, and every other thing they might need to get through a season.

Apart from these, the mother of one is also responsible for scheduling appearances, photoshoots, and any other media representation for the players.
