Drake was born in Dallas and spent much of her early life growing up around the state of Texas in different cities including San Antonio and El Paso. Drake attended a community college in El Paso and then attended the University of Texas-El Paso and majored in psychology.While attending college, Drake made a living as an exotic dancer, during which she met many featured dancers who also worked in the adult film industry, and decided to give it a try herself. She credits Michael Raven and Sydnee Steele as people instrumental in her transition from dancing to adult films.
Drake began by going to Los Angeles and touring film sets and companies before actually starting to work in adult films. She also did photo shoots and worked for Playboy while in Los Angeles. Her first, real experience in adult film came as a 'condom and lube girl' on the set of a Jill Kelly film. She finally began her own acting in adult films in 1999. Her first film was titled Pussyman's Decadent Divas 4. She soon signed a contract with Sin City and made several movies with that studio and afterwards signed a contract with Wicked Pictures. She has been a contract star with Wicked since 2003 and has made more than 50 films with the company. She has started writing and directing adult movies as well and has been writing films since her tenure with Sin City. Her directorial debut came in the film Jenna Depraved in 2006. Drake has also appeared in several television shows. She appeared in one episode of the short-lived TV series The Money Shot and the pilot episode of Skin. She made an appearance, along with her former husband Evan Stone, in the HBO special Pornucopia: Going Down in the Valley. The pair appeared in an episode titled Love and/or Sex which pertained to couples working in the adult entertainment business. Drake was also one of several porn actors shown in the The Tyra Banks Show episode, "A Day in the Life of a Porn Star". Drake's name is usually spelled "jessica drake" (all lower case). Drake's story as to how this came about was she was signing autographs at a convention about three months after starting in the adult business using "Jessica Drake" (proper case) but she was unhappy with how it looked. After the convention, she experimented with various ways of signing and settled on the lower case version of her name. For the film Manhunters, Drake became a certified fugitive recovery agent.
