Jegede grew up in Hackney as the youngest of four children. He had a rough upbringing, going through a number of evictions when his mother was not able to pay rent. He attended Barking Abbey School and there is where he found he was good at football. He went to work in becoming a professional footballer and was offered trials at Norwich and Tottenham Hotspur, which he excelled at but at the beginning of secondary school he was diagnosed with Osgood–Schlatter disease, which stopped him from fully playing football. So he decided to pursue his other passions for sports and enter into the world of athletics. JJ is a vastly experienced athlete and coach working with Met-Track for a number of years at various squads across London. In 2014 JJ was selected for the England team at the Commonwealth Games and later on in the summer for the Great Britain team at the European Championships. He has won the UK Championships Indoors twice and has a personal best of 8 meters 11 centimeters in the Long Jump.
